About

The University of Hong Kong HKU Master of Arts in Art History (MAAH) programme is the first MA in Hong Kong to focus on art history.

Overview

Art History provides advanced training in research and writing for students and specialists pursuing further academic study in art history or professional careers in museums and other art-related fields. It is important to understand that The University of Hong Kong's programme is not primarily a curatorial studies programme, nor does it focus on navigating the art market. 

We do include training in a number of curatorial skills that are essential for work in museums and galleries, but these are just part of the larger academic curriculum, which emphasizes art historical research, theory, and writing.

Programme goal

  • Students enroll and participate in six courses, three per semester, and explore various themes, time periods and subjects in art history.
  • By the end of the programme they focus on a specific research topic and write an MA dissertation of 10,000 words, under the supervision of a recognized authority in the chosen field of inquiry.

Programme Structure

Courses included:

  • Art History: goals, methods, and writing
  • Art history: materials, techniques, and collections
  • Dissertation writing workshop
  • Seminar in Chinese art
  • Seminar in contemporary art
  • Seminar in Art History research and writing
