Tamkang University recently instituted a new academic program that seeks to tighten the relationship enjoyed by the entertainment industries in Taiwan and Mainland China. The new course is called the Experimental Program in Innovative Media and Production. It is a four-month program offered jointly by Tamkang University and Guangzhou University that aims to provide students from both universities with theoretical training and practical intern opportunities in the field of communication media.
The program will draw on the experience of several renowned educators, including the program director herself, Professor Chao Ya-ly. It will also incorporate a practical component, in which students will get the chance to intern at any of a number of Taiwan’s leading television stations, such as TVBS and NowNews, among others.
The newly-established program is the most extensive joint initiative that TKU has undertaken with any one of its sister universities. It is a pioneering effort that will strengthen the already close ties between the entertainment industries in Taiwan and Mainland China, and become a source of talented media personnel in the near future.
