Studying Art History at HKU

Prospective Students

The Department is part of the School of Humanities, under the Faculty of Arts. We do not admit students directly, no matter you are a Joint University Programmes Admissions System (JUPAS) candidate, or a Non-JUPAS candidate. Consult the Registry for general admission requirements and procedures.

Bachelor of Arts has a flexible curriculum structure which enables students to specialize in certain subject areas and to explore a wide range of interests. Year 1 students usually take their first year exploring various disciplines and interests.

If your choice of BA comes with a strong interest in art history, welcome to our programme!
