Commended for its inter-disciplinary approach and emphasis on learning in a regional and international context, Lingnan University’s Master of Cultural Studies (MCS) programme is not specific to one career or profession. Rather, it aims to teach and inspire students to be well-rounded global citizens, with the holistic knowledge and soft skills to succeed in any profession or area of life.


According to feedback, the Master of Cultural Studies programme from Lingnan University, typically exceeds student expectations. In the year’s graduate survey, respondents identified three key elements/aptitudes with particular relevance for work and daily life. These were critical thinking skills, the ability to solve problems independently, and multi-perspective thinking skills.


The main learning outcomes of the MCS are fully aligned with Lingnan’s mission of enabling students to think, judge, care and ultimately act responsibly in the changing circumstances of Hong Kong, the region and the world.

“On completing the programme, graduates are able to better analyse and evaluate the complex processes of cultural work and production today,” Prof. LEUNG says. “They also learn to identify and assess the constraints, potential new challenges, and emergent problems in the rapidly changing contemporary context.”
