The Education University of Hong Kong


Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Creative Arts and Culture (Music) 創意藝術與文化榮譽文學士 (音樂)


Short Description

This programme is the first undergraduate programme in Hong Kong to offer arts management and cultural studies components to complement discipline-based training in the creative arts. It aims at producing graduates as community-based artists who are not only artists conversant in an arts discipline, but with working knowledge of other art forms and cross-disciplinary understanding of one’s cultural environmental while experienced in aspects of arts management, communication, and promotional and educational practicalities.

Students will focus on one "core" arts discipline of Music, and will be exposed to various aspects of Creative Arts, Cultural Studies and Arts Management. Students' learning experience will be further enhanced by completing an Internship, the Regional Summer Institute, the Honours Project and other academic activities.
