I am especially grateful that I have professors who are not only well-respected in the academic world, but possessed incredible patience and wisdom when guiding me through the completion of my thesis on religion and film. They are Professor Hao Xiaoming who has guided me through my Master’s and Ph.D. theses, and Associate Professor Stephen Teo who has guided me through every word and every sentence with his expertise in Cinema Studies.”

“My personal interest in communication stems from my passion to relate to others. The ability to articulate effectively is a lifelong lesson, while the use of media to constantly recreate and shape popular culture is a phenomena that intrigues me.

Above all, it’s the knowledge, experience, networking and friendships created throughout the journey that I take with me in moving forward.”

Having been a communications practitioner for some time, I felt that the course offered me a fresh perspective in understanding what we do, and the way we conduct our communication activities. With course mates from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, the discussions that happen in class can sometimes be quite thought-provoking and interesting. Besides expanding our horizons, the wonderful friendships gained made the programme enjoyable and fun.”

“The knowledge I had gained from the Master of Mass Communication programme, coupled with my own experience working within the evolving media landscape in Singapore, has equipped me with the ability to think more widely about how I can contribute to this industry. There was a good mix of course topics covered – which allowed me to customise the type of programme I wanted for myself – taught by lecturers who could make academic theories relevant to the real world. But the best part of the programme has to be the friends I had made, who were always keen to collaborate and band together no matter how trying our Masters journey was.”
