Meet our current mentors!
Hello! I'm Claire Lin, BMS year 3. My favourite areas of study within the program are close-reading for English literature and transmedia storytelling practices. I like patterned buttoned-down shirts, reading awful webnovels, and watching volleyball highlight videos. With the support of your profs and cohort, you guys are going to have a lovely first year in Media Studies! I look forward to meeting you!
Ask Me About... study tips, writing research essays, living in UBC dorms, CPSC 110, book recommendations, making the most out of inevitable procrastination, and how to focus in an environment non-conducive to learning.
Welcome to UBC’s Media Studies program!
My name is Jueun Park and I’m a third year student in BMS. I enjoy writing, binge-watching films from my recommendation list, taking photographs and collaging them into surreal photos, staying cozy at home on typical rainy Vancouver days.
I am beyond excited to share my interests and tips for BMS with you all this year!
Hi! I'm Hui and I'm a 3rd year student in the BMS program with a minor in English lit.
I'm excited to share and help improve your first-year experience and I think that I have tips from my own experiences in BMS that will help you with study habits, specific courses, and anything else that might come up! I'm interested in media theory, critical theory, and postcolonial studies.Outside of classes, I like to read and write when I have free time and also spend lots of time in the digital world.
