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 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 environment while experienced in aspects of arts management, communication, and promotional and educational practicalities.

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.
