Summary

Programme Aims

The programme aims to prepare professional Visual Arts teachers and community-based artists who:

  • can demonstrate a solid foundation in visual arts skills, related academic competencies, and visual arts teaching practices to meet their future teaching needs;
  • have a passion for professional excellence and are committed to lifelong learning;
  • can work collaboratively with students, parents, colleagues, school administrators and other professionals to promote visual arts and related arts education in primary/secondary schools; and
  • are able to work across a range of established art forms and contribute to the promotion and development of the arts and arts education in the local, regional and international cultural and creative industries.

Education Major – Visual Arts Studies

Education Major emphasizes on the linkage between the fields of visual arts creation and subject-based teaching and learning. This intertwined approach allows students to recognize and appreciate visual arts as a cultural, social and civil entity; and leads them to an understanding of the importance and implications of visual arts education in the development of these areas. Drawing on integrated learning concepts, the courses are structured on the premise that students, when exposed to studio practice, inquiry and discourse, will also develop insights and competence in the classroom teaching of the subject.

Discipline Major – Creative Arts and Culture (CAC) Studies

The Discipline Major courses equip students with a broad understanding of the diversity of the arts in the cultural and creative industries. The Compulsory Courses are progressive in nature, with five courses in Cultural Studies and Arts Management. These courses emphasize the significance of the arts and creativity, cultural literacy, arts management, and the interconnectedness between related disciplines beyond the arts. The five Visual Arts Subject Focus courses are designed to sharpen students’ skills and knowledge in the subject discipline and to consolidate students’ understanding of the art form, both theoretically and practically. Students may also select from a spectrum of Major Elective Courses, which address relevant issues concerning the arts in a variety of contexts and settings.

Career Prospects/Professional Qualifications

Graduates of the programme will be creative and disciplined thinkers, fluent in written, oral and visual communication. With professional enthusiasm, students are equipped with specialized subject knowledge, contemporary teaching strategies and skills in curriculum planning for Visual Arts education in both primary and secondary schools. Furthermore, the Internship programme will train students to become cultural expertise who have interdisciplinary knowledge in cross-arts issues and management.
