FINE ARTS

Short Description

With a mission to advance traditional Chinese culture, bridge Chinese and Western art, and nurture local art professionals, the Department of Fine Arts offers a comprehensive and balanced undergraduate programme that prepare students for future careers as artists, art historians, museum curators, among other art-related professions. The programme achieves this mission in the following ways:

1. Focus on Chinese Art in a Global Context
A wide range of courses in Chinese art practices and history is offered alongside Western art history and studio training. Whenever possible, cross-field interactions are encouraged. Such an integrated approach reflects Hong Kong’s position as an advanced, multi-cultural city.

2. Emphasis on Both the Practice and the History of Art
The Department places equal emphasis on studio and art history courses. As a result, our graduates are well-rounded and well-equipped for professional careers in the arts.

3. Career Preparation
The Department constantly revises its existing courses and introduces new courses that cater to the prevailing trends and needs of society. It also organises professional training courses and internship programmes to equip students with practical experience, thereby laying a solid foundation for their future careers as professional artists, art educators, and art administrators.
