Culture & Philosophy
The School is committed to offering quality courses on Chinese and world culture conducted by renowned scholars in the respective fields. These include subjects on the modern interpretation of the Chinese classics, ethnic history and culture, as well as postgraduate inter-disciplinary studies of humanities.
The programme aims to provide students with a multi-disciplinary approach to the study of communication and culture with an emphasis on media and cultural studies. More specifically, it trains the students to be critical consumers and ethical communicators through discussions that allow them to understand the power of both mediated and non-mediated communication in specific cultural contexts. The programme also addresses how existing and emerging forms of new media construct identities and shape lives by examining the relationship between communication and cultures.
