  • This course aims to facilitate students in integrating and applying the knowledge and skills they acquired through the MCCC programme. Students will conduct a research project in a group of three students under the guidance of an academic supervisor assigned by the department. Each group will develop a research topic related to the field of media, culture and creative cities. Each group is required to attend seminars in the “Media, Culture & Creative Cities Speaker Series” and prepare a reflective memo, research proposal, presentation of its project as well as a research report. If you have any questions and/or problems regarding your group member(s) or supervisor, please report to your supervisor, capstone coordinator, and program director immediately.
