Bachelor of Arts in Humanities and Digital Technologies 文學士(人文及數碼科技)

BA(HDT)

Short Description

The BA(HDT) programme aims to recruit intellectually ambitious and talented students and equip them with the training in humanities and digital technologies needed to tackle the world’s multi-faceted cultural and social problems, and to train future leaders by endowing them with innovative thinking, problem-solving skills and an interdisciplinary mindset.

The programme’s interdisciplinary structure combines a humanities focus (undertaken within a single Arts discipline) with a focus in interdisciplinary digital technologies. Through internship, experiential learning and project-based learning, the programme brings together students’ digital technology skills with their chosen humanities discipline to create an individually-tailored learning experience.

In summary, the BA(HDT) offers both practical and theoretical training, developing in students a unique skill-set in humanities and digital technologies.  Students will be equipped with the skills to drive pioneering work in their humanities areas of specialisation, with the capacity to think in new ways about technological innovation, and with the ability to build a career in a wide array of fields.

Calculation of scores for applicants with more than 1 sitting in HKDSE Examination

In general, most of the programmes offered by HKU consider the best results achieved by candidates in different combination of sittings, except for a few programmes which only consider the latest results.  Few programmes may also impose a penalty on HKDSE repeaters.  The policy on the calculation of scores in combined sittings of HKDSE for the 2022-23 exercise will be finalized at a later stage, which will be posted on our website https://www.hku.hk/dse.
