Minor Programme in Theatre Studies

Students seeking to pursue the study of a minor programme would need to fulfil 15 units of courses specified by the offering department/programme, and note that no registration priority will be given to enrolment in minor courses. Upon completion of the 15 units required for the minor programmes, students should apply to the Academic Registry for approval.

The structure of the curriculum is as follows:

I) Required Courses 6 units
II) Elective Courses 9 units
    15 units


I. Required Courses 6 units
  HUMN2027 Introduction to the Art of Theatre 3 units
  HUMN3005 Artistic Creativity and Aesthetics Awareness 3 units
II. Elective Courses 9 units
  Three of the following courses, of which at least one must be at Level 3 or above: 
  CHIL2035 Art of Kunqu 3 units

Students taking Theatre Studies as a Minor are strongly advised to take HUMN2027 Introduction to the Art of Theatre as the foundation course first before they progress to the elective component (three other courses from the list). The other required course, HUMN3005 Artistic Creativity and Aesthetics Awareness, should be taken in their later stage of study.
