Capstone Project

The capstone project is a three-credit compulsory course for major students in cultural studies to be offered in the final year of study. It aims to provide students with the opportunity to integrate their academic knowledge and practical skills acquired from their undergraduate study through conducting a research project that comprises (i) a research proposal, (ii) a progress record, (iii) presentation at Capstone fair, and (iv) a final work.

The capstone project should be undertaken as a group of 3 students. Each group will be allocated an academic supervisor, who will help students to identify a topic of interest relevant to the core discipline, and to complete the project through out a term. Students are encouraged to think through and beyond what they have learned in their undergraduate studies and to develop a research project that could contribute to the field of cultural studies and the wider community/society.

Student Work

Summer Internship

To maximize the benefit of Cultural Studies education for the students enrolled in the BACS degree, the unique non-credit bearing internship programme was set up with a selected number of local cultural, media and community bodies to enable students to put theory into practice in the Hong Kong context. The internship programme also aims to enable students to develop self-initiative and professionalism and to learn to cope with issues related to the working environment.
