Communication and Culture

The name “Communication and Culture” umbrellas a broad array of award-bearing and non-award bearing courses and programmes in the areas of journalism and media studies, advertising and public relations, as well as curating and collecting art and most recently, behavioral analysis and investigative interviewing.

Many of the courses and programmes we offer are run in collaboration with renowned overseas partners such as the University of the Arts London and the University of Western Australia.  We also invited niche institutions such as the Emotional Intelligence Academy to run short executive programmes for working adults who are interested in communication and behavior analysis.

Emotional Intelligence Academy, UK
The executive programme is the first of its kind in Hong Kong that aims to take a closer look at the subtleties of communication and how it relates to truthfulness and credibility. 

The 3-day intensive programme will be delivered by fly-in experts from Emotional Intelligence Academy (EIA), which operates internationally with a range of courses in forensic communication and emotional awareness.  Classes will be conducted primarily in English but will be supplemented with Cantonese.  For details about EIA, please see

一邪雙飛三絕掌, 星星月亮並太陽——作為曾經星光熠熠的「東方荷李活」, 五六十年代的黑白片演化到伊士曼七彩, 在香港大量拍攝的國粵語片, 所反映的當時香港式生活, 時尚, 各階層的喜好等細節, 一直被低估和忽視——譬如在今天, 繁體字簡體字爭拗屢見不鮮, 殊不知當時非「長鳳新」系列電影的片頭, 像電懋《南北和》(1961)裏出現的美術字, 便夾雜了「簡筆字/減筆字」, 觀眾並不以為忤。
