Bachelor of Arts in Conservation 文學士(建築文物保護)

BA(Conservation)

Short Description

Architectural conservation is recognised worldwide as an important component of sustainable development.  Every year there is increasing demand and scope for both research into conservation and its practical application, as cities around the world recognise the need for more rigorous professional requirements based on international best-practice standards specified in international charters and conventions.

The Bachelor of Arts in Conservation BA(Conservation) offers inter-disciplinary and experiential learning covering a broad spectrum of subjects such as architecture, arts and humanities, real estate and construction, social sciences and urban studies. The core competencies are classified into five pillars namely (1) History and Theory of Conservation, (2) Materials and Technology, (3) Professional Practice, (4) Conservation Studio, and (5) Research Thesis. Numerous local and at least three overseas field studies and the one-month internship placements are also part of the curriculum.

The programme also provides students with a high level of professional competencies for continuing their studies in complementary disciplines, including architecture, landscape architecture, material science, real estate and construction, and urban planning and design etc.
