Seeing Art Beyond Borders
BA (Hons) in Visual Studies adopts a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach to the historical and theoretical study of visual arts, focusing on two concentrations—art history and film art—and complementing with courses on interdisciplinary subjects. The curriculum broadly covers the history, theory and expression of visual art, moving images and material culture in Hong Kong, China, East Asia and the West. Experiential learning is an integral part of the curriculum and central to practice-based courses, including studio practice, curating, internship and service-learning. Capstone experience is also introduced to encourage integrated learning, enabling students to develop a research, art or curatorial project under supervision in the final year of their study.
The Department of Digital Arts and Creative Industries (DACI) has a unique Artist-in-Residence programme, offering ample opportunities for active engagement with local and overseas artists and film directors in the art world. Students can also benefit from the insights and experiences of invited speakers, visiting scholars, film directors, curators and other art professionals who have involved in VS Events. To gain international exposure, half of VS students can join a semester-long Study Abroad programme. Merit scholarships and the Chamber of Young Snow Curatorial Scholarships are also available.
