- Program Description:
- The Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Cultural Studies Programme is hosted by the Department of English Language and Literature. This Programme is designed in response to the network culture of the 21st century where interconnectedness becomes a new model for education, particularly in higher education systems. There are now many cross-disciplinary academic programmes in universities all over the world which endeavor to develop their study-areas right at the interface between existing modes of knowledge ‘owned’ by separate departments. The design of all the courses in the Programme has adopted an interdisciplinary approach which aims to create interdisciplinary knowledge between science and humanities, science and philosophy, language and literature, literature and visual arts, ecology and humanities, etc.
In this Programme, all courses will be taught in English. Cultural and literary texts will encompass global and regional texts, in which interdisciplinary issues will help students broaden their horizons towards a new model of knowledge-making in the 21st century and beyond.

The M.A. in Interdisciplinary Cultural Studies has an edge in training our graduates, among many other possible and related career paths, to be capable teachers of liberal studies particularly in EMI schools. Our uniqueness in providing a rich repertoire of “knowledge at the edges” is congenial to the very spirit of liberal studies. The Programme also aims to benefit students who are already employees in, or aspired towards developing a career in areas of, the cultural industries such as museum curators, higher-education institution administrators, publishing, editors, arts centre managers, art gallery managers.
