Organization Profile

Organisation profile

In line with the role statement of “creativity-inspiring undergraduate education”, our University has been offering a B.A. (Hons.) in Humanities Programme since 1990. The Humanities Programme (HUM) is committed to a distinctive mission of higher education that incorporates a bilingual, interdisciplinary and cross-cultural curriculum that develops and sustains the whole-person education mission of the University.

The two B.A. (Hons) programmes: Liberal and Cultural Studies (LCS), a top-up degree programme runs in collaboration with College of International Education (CIE), and BA (Hons) in Creative and Professional Writing (CPW) together with HUM, are enrolling about 150 students each year. Given the significant expansion in size and growth of academic teaching as well as research, the Department of Humanities and Creative Writing (HMW) was officially established in 2012 to house the three programmes, namely: BA (Hons) in Humanities (HUM), BA (Hons) in Creative and Professional Writing (CPW), and BA (Hons) in Liberal and Cultural Studies (LCS). The Department offers B.A. degrees related to the studies of humanities and creativity, a flourishing field corresponding nicely to the educational goals of the University.
