Bachelor of Arts 文學士

BA

Short Description

The Faculty of Arts implements a broad-based admissions system, giving students more flexibility in choosing their Majors.  Under the broad-based admissions system, students will spend their first year of study exploring different Arts disciplines.  Then, towards the end of their first year, they will choose the Major they would like to study.  The broad-based admissions system consists of six Major Programmes: (1) Chinese Language and Literature, (2) Creative and Professional Writing, (3) English Language and Literature, (4) Humanities, (5) Religion, Philosophy and Ethics and (6) Translation.

To fulfil graduation requirements, students are required to take 128 units in total (including 60 units of Major courses, 38 units of General Education courses and 30 units of Free Elective courses).

Students may also choose Double Major Programmes which provide them with training in two fields.  They can choose any two Majors from Chinese Language and Literature, English Language and Literature and Religion, Philosophy and Ethics.

In addition to the Major, students may also choose from the Minor Programmes offered by the Faculty of Arts or other Faculties, Schools or Academy. Students are required to take 15 units to obtain a Minor. They can make use of their Free Elective units to fulfil Minor requirements.

Career Opportunities

Administration, education, publishing, media, public relations, marketing, social service, culture and the arts, etc.

Remarks:

Students may have the option of taking an integrated programme by extending their undergraduate study by one year, leading to the award of a bachelor's degree in that Major plus a Diploma in Education.
