School of Creative Media (options: BA Creative Media, BSc Creative Media, BAS New Media) 創意媒體學院 [選項: 文學士(創意媒體)、理學士(創意媒體)、文理學士(新媒體)]


Short Description

The School of Creative Media (SCM), the region’s first such institution, was founded to nurture a new generation of interdisciplinary artists and creative media professionals, and to develop new ideas and technologies for the creative industries in Hong Kong, the mainland China and across the world.

Our students are trained across disciplines spanning computer science, fine arts, visual design, creative writing, cultural studies and digital technology. We bridge the boundaries between art and science and integrate traditional and new media. We value applied creativity, cultural awareness and critical thinking as much as business sense and entrepreneurial success.

Our internationally recruited faculty members are among the foremost artists and researchers in the field, bringing a global perspective and forging many institutional partnerships for the School. Our graduates consistently demonstrate high employability, with the majority now working as independent artists and professionals in the creative industries, film, television, advertising, publishing, media production and information technology. Many have won prestigious international and local awards for creative and technical innovation.

With strengths arising from a unique mix of East and West, Hong Kong has seen a major expansion in its creative economy and has emerged as a thriving hub of new media culture in Asia and the world. The CityU School of Creative Media has played an instrumental role in this development as the leading force in creative media education and research in Hong Kong.

BA Creative Media and BAS New Media students are eligible to apply for the following joint degree programme:
