Founded as the first and unique undergraduate programme in Hong Kong to offering a broad liberal arts education, HUM re-dedicated itself to training students to think critically and creatively, to write logically and speak confidently, to sympathize with humanity, and to appreciate life.
Our teaching staff profile includes renowned scholars and emerging young ones. Our programme continues to be distinguished by the three pillars of interdisciplinarity, bilingual teaching and learning, and cross-culturalism. Based on these unique strengths, our programme is marked by three Cs:
Student Learning Experiences
The Humanities Programme provides students with opportunities to study abroad in order to expand their educational and cultural horizons. Previously, our Summer Study Tour visited Germany, Taiwan and China.
Every year, many students spend one semester or a year in overseas universities, and they invariably come back with unforgettable experiences as well as a newly-gained sense of confidence. They may go to a wide variety of places for exchange, such as Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Australia, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Norway, Estonia, Finland, Denmark, France, Sweden and the USA.
Graduates take up careers in the fields of education, business, management, public relations, media, publishing, creative industries and the civil service.
Students may have the option of taking an integrated programme by extending their undergraduate study by one year, leading to the award of a bachelor's degree in that Major plus a Diploma in Education.
We adopt a holistic approach in selecting applicants on individual merits. Applicants are required to meet the University entrance requirements, English Language requirements and Programme entrance requirements (if any).
