In Media and Cultural Studies, I have learnt concepts and cultural theories which have inspired me to think and question more about the cultural phenomenon and ideologies in our everyday life from a fresh perspective. I believe this programme would definitely enhance our critical thinking and make us see today’s modern society from a completely different angle!

After the torturing battle of DSE, it is easy for we students to feel lost in the sea of opportunities and career paths. HKUSPACE and AAMCCS have introduced me to the fascinating world of cultural studies with introductory courses. It also sparked my interest in this field of study which really gave me a clear goal. With that, I was able to shake off my sense of disorientation in exchange for a clear, dedicated mind to pursue my dream.

I have been equipped with skills to critically analyze media text, identity, gender, consumer culture and spatial politics.  I have more importantly learnt to acknowledge the fluidity of culture, the problematics of everyday life practices and identification of the omnipresence of discrimination and inequality in society. I have also met lecturers from the AAMCCS programme whose words I will always remember, and inspiring me to make my dreams comes true.
