Heritage Education and Arts Management
Students are required to complete an Internship course at an internship (heritage-/arts-related) agency locally, nationally, regionally or internationally, to apply the learnt knowledge and skills in real-world contexts. This internship enhances students with real-world working experience for their preparation of future careers in heritage education and arts management industries.
Final Year Project
The Final Year Project is an individual piece of work on a topic of students’ own choice related to their study. Students can choose either Honours Project (HP), which focuses on the preparation for postgraduate studies, or a Capstone Project (CP), which focuses on the preparation for future employment, as their Final Year Project. Both HP and CP are divided into two phases. Phase I provides students with training in research methods, and Phase II engages students in a research project (for HP) and project output (for CP) in which they are expected to work closely with a project supervisor.
General Education (University ePortfolio)
General Education (GE) aims to broaden students’ intellectual horizons, help them make connections among different areas of knowledge between their formal studies and life outside the classroom, and strengthen their capacity for critical thinking and judgement. Consolidating Undergraduate Learning, University ePortfolio requires students approaching the end of their undergraduate studies to reflect critically on the knowledge and skills acquired in their studies and to develop an integrated view of how and where they position themselves in relation to their future goals, plans and aspirations.
Medium of Instruction
Chinese (supplemented by English and Putonghua).
