Hong Kong is the media entertainment, transportation and financial hub in Asia located at the southern tip of China.

Courses in HKBU are mostly conducted in English. All course credits taken in HKBU are transferable to BGSU. For major courses, they will be counted as topic course credits in your department. Up to five BGSU Students with at least 3.0 GPA can choose to study there from one semester up to one year. A study tour to mainland China will be arranged for BGSU students coming to HKBU this spring. HKBU students will come to BGSU at the same time and they will participate in various student media organizations offered by BGSU. The program is open to all majors although priority will be given to School of Media and Communication’s department majors.

The School of Media & Communication (SMC) is proud to announce the start of a new exchange program with the School of Humanities at the University of Mannheim in Germany. The city of Mannheim is located in the southeastern portion of the country at the confluence of the Rheine and Neckar Rivers, roughly 70 km south of Frankfurt in the state of Baden-Wurttemberg. The university was first established as the “Commercial College” (or Business School) in 1907, and developed schools of law, humanities, and social sciences in subsequent years; the university has grown during that time from 3150 students to 12,000 today. Such expansion led to the state of Baden-Wurttemberg renaming the college “University of Mannheim” in 1967. The university is currently housed in Mannheim Palace, which is the second largest baroque palace in Europe (second to Versailles in Paris). Students take courses and engage in activities within and throughout the palace during their time at the university. Students should apply for this exchange program by Oct. 1. Decisions about applications will be made shortly thereafter.
