M.A. IN CREATIVE WRITING FOR CULTURAL PROFESSIONALS
The program was established in 2023 by the Department of Humanities and Creative Writing. The department consists of two major divisions - Humanities and Creative Writing - which offer degrees at the undergraduate, master's, and PhD levels.
VISION & MISSION
We aim to train cultural professionals in the foundations of writing and thinking creatively in both English and Chinese, so they are able to develop their careers in the language of their choice yet have an international, cross-cultural outlook in their development. The Programme is designed to recognize and strengthen the role creative writing plays for professionals in different cultural and creative fields, especially during challenging times in local and global contexts. Through appropriate training, graduates can turn their creative writing into a significant strategy to deal with social issues, community development, personal anxiety, etc. and to serve as a communicative channel to bring civic engagement, transparency, and better understanding to the community. The writing courses are taught in relation to history, politics, theory, and philosophy, as well as media studies, gender studies, and cultural studies. To complete the Master Programme, students are expected to conduct their Master Projects in either Chinese or English with close professional guidance, along with the satisfaction of other course requirements.
