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 in a group of 3 students. Each group will be allocated an academic supervisor, to be assigned by the Department, who will help students to identify a topic of interest relevant to the core discipline, and to complete the project through out the semester. 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.

On completion of the course, students shall be able to:

  1. demonstrate their knowledge of cultural studies, research and presentation skills;
  2. examine a topic of study and their experience of public engagement with critical and reflective perspectives;
  3. articulate their learning experience in a written paper, other forms of creative output or community activities; and
  4. disseminate the results and findings of their project to the public audience in a creative and effective way (e.g. exhibition, digital archive, blog-writing, magazines,etc.).
