Chinese professors to conduct research on new media at Pacific

Mar 11, 2015

Four communication professors from Hebei University of China are expected to arrive in Stockton this month. They will spend a year conducting new media research with Dr. Qingwen Dong, professor of Communication.

This educational training program is jointly run by the College of the Pacific and the School of Journalism and Communication of Hebei University, located on the outskirts of Beijing. HeBei's Communication school is one of top tier programs in China with an established doctoral program in communication. 

This program is designed to help the Chinese professors enhance their knowledge of how Communication is taught in the United States and to become familiar with American scientific research methodologies.

Their goal is to complete a textbook on the impact of social media on society in the U.S. and China. They also plan to submit their research papers to three major communication conferences to be held in the States.

"We are honored to be chosen to host scholars from China," said Rena Fraden, dean of the College of the Pacific. "I am certain that we will learn as much from them as they from us."
