Capstone Project in Media, Culture and Creative Cities
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.
A curated collection of past students’ final capstone reports is available on the HKU Scholars’ Hub.
A comprehensive list of titles of past student projects is also available.

Conduct and carry out academic research in collaboration with other students;
