Cross-strait journalism education could be traced back to 1949. In different political systems, it implements different education policies. Moreover, in different countries(regions) it is also affected by factor such as journalism education background, forming various models known for its special characters. The article compares the journalism education on both sides of Taiwan Straits, in terms of the Institutional settings, the subject attribution, the faculty, the educational concept, the curriculum arrangement, the practice and so on. We analyze the differences between them in order to find out the reasons why they are different and finally do us good for getting revelation from the Taiwan news education.When it comes to the journalism settings, the number of educational institutions in both sides of Cross-strait is increasing in a fast rapid in recent years, which has become a baffle for improvement of the teaching quality. On the one hand, teachers level, hardware facilities can not keep up with the expansion of the scale; on the other, the oversupply of talents and saturation of jobs put pressure on journalism students. In the classification of discipline, journalism of the mainland belongs to literature. While in Taiwan, science communication has evolved into an independent category and journalism is the subordinate subjects of it.In the philosophy of education, the purpose of journalism education in mainland is to cultivate high political quality of compound talents. while the Taiwan wants to cultivate universal professionals. In terms of curriculum, the curriculum of Taiwan is more flexible and elective, which are also worth taking a reference into consideration for us. on the contrary, there are so many compulsory courses and too less flexibility in the mainland curriculum.In the professional practice, Taiwan’s journalism school founded a practice platform for trainee at the school. Some practice platforms are combined with the professional practice courses so as to be applied for a special teaching. Off-campus internship has a strict practice examination, supervision and evaluation system. By comparison, in respect of the practice, the mainland news education is not as same as that of in Taiwan. Apart from some outside school practice platforms such as Schools’ cooperation with media, establishing practicing base, there are very few in the campus. As the campus internship platform is so limited, which may leads to students having a lower independence ability. Besides, the practice time is more concentrated on the winter and summer vacations and the fourth year in school as well. However, in winter and summer vacation, it is always overcrowded for the very working unit of Media; while the practice in the forth year, it is more likely a bit of late and isn’t good for students filling their theoretical knowledge gaps in time.According to the comparison and analysis of cross-strait journalism education, this article explains three aspects of practice platform to improve the education level, namely educational concept, course arrangement and practice platform. The measure includes the cultivate of independent thinking ability, the expansion of the international field of vision; the establishment of a flexible selection mechanism of curriculum, the expansion of elective courses and practice courses, in addition to, adding new media courses; enlarging cooperating scales with the media unit; what’s more,the journalism institute tries to found more practice platforms, enrich the types of practice platform, establish and improve the training system, increase the student internship time and so on also have its profound and unique meaning.
