Fudan University's Journalism School has invited several veteran journalists to become involved in its newly launched international journalism program.

The journalists, who have been working in local or national news media for a long time, will not only share their professional experience with students in the classroom but also help them in newsrooms.

“Multimedia reporters from Sixth Tone will share the most cutting-edge media technology with the students,” said Zhang Jun, editor-in-chief of Sixth Tone, an English-language news website focusing on insightful national news. 

Chen Jie, art director of Shanghai Daily, is hoping to recruit some students with multi-language skills from the program for the newspaper’s cooperation projects with overseas media organizations.

The journalist-as-adviser system will keep Fudan's Journalism School's teaching abreast of the latest industry developments, which supplements the existing academician-as-adviser system at the school.

"The international journalism program is a professionally oriented program where the students’ theoretical and practical abilities are emphasized equally,” said Deng Jianguo, director of the international journalism program.

Ji Wenlei, a master student of the program, noted: “I am eager to learn at Fudan University, not only from the campus but also from the news industry. The dual-adviser system offers me more opportunities and possibilities.”

This year is the 90th anniversary of the Journalism School of Fudan University.
