Mission and Vision

The Department of Cultural and Religious Studies is composed of three units: Cultural Studies, Religious Studies, and Theological Studies. We engage in the teaching and research related to the investigation, interpretation, and critique of knowledge and discourses of a wide range of social, cultural, and religious subject matters produced in Hong Kong, China, Asia, and the world. We promote creative and critical thinking, and we also encourage dialogues and mutual understanding among different actors and parties. We welcome those interdisciplinary attempts and international collaborations that would lead to innovative thinking and new solutions to existing problems, and in so doing, we bring related knowledge and discussions to students, academia, and the public. Faithful to our local communities, we are particularly committed to the values of compassion, equality, plurality, and responsibility, to cultivate a more inclusive and caring society.
