Programme Director: Mr NG, Kingsley S K
The arts and culture sector and creative industries have seen rapid development in Hong Kong and the Mainland. There is a need for art specialists who can fill the present and future positions and push for the future forms of arts and culture and creative industries.
This transdisciplinary programme will educate students who are well-versed not only in arts and culture but also in technology.
The programme will be open to students from all academic backgrounds. It targets tech-savvy students who wish to pursue a career in applying technologies in the creative industries and arts and culture sector.
The structure of the curriculum is as follows:
|I)||Major Courses||78 units|
|II)||Honours Project||10 units|
|III)||University Core Courses||13 units|
|IV)||General Education Courses*||12 units|
|V)||Free Electives||15 units|
* For the 18-unit General Education Courses, the learning outcomes of two Level II Interdisciplinary Thematic Courses (6 units) will be fulfilled by taking the Transdisciplinary Common Core “ITS 2009 Global Challenges II” (6 units).
The curriculum will be flexible with options for students to suit multiple and evolving career options. The key learning activities, particularly in the last two years, are collaboration on projects from the industries, experiential learning and constant problem- solving.
Students will work with renowned professors and experts in and outside Hong Kong. They will also undergo multiple learning experiences in the Mainland particularly the Greater Bay Area and overseas. By the time of graduation, students will have a strong portfolio documenting their achievements.
Assessment will focus on creation and skills such as teamwork. There will be portfolio and project-based assessment based on constant problem solving.
