Programme: Music - PhD/MPhil/MSc by Research

Start date: September 2016

Mode of study: Full time

My area of interest is identity, intercultural communication, and learning in world music.

I always believe one should have a passion for learning and developing oneself into a well-rounded person, and I’ve been devoting myself to doing so. This is also the reason why I took English Literature, and International Business & Trade as my majors in undergraduate study, and pursued my interests in Translation, and Intercultural Communication as my postgraduate study subjects.

Doing a PhD in Music now, my objective is to explore the overlap between world music and intercultural communication studies interdisciplinarily, and find conslience between them.
