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

BA(CAC)-VA

Short Description

This 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 to develop community-based artists who are able to work across a range of established art forms and contribute to the promotion and development of the arts and arts education in the local, regional, and international cultural and creative industries.

Students will focus on one "core" arts discipline of Visual Arts, 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 Final Year Project and other academic activities.

Students are prepared for a wide range of careers in the cultural and creative industries, the commercial and education sectors, the government and non-governmental organisations.
