Programme Aims

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

  • can demonstrate a solid foundation in music skills, related academic competencies, and music 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 music and related arts education in primary/secondary school; 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 – Music Studies

Education Major equips students to be a competent, versatile and creative music teacher with a firm foundation in musical understanding and professional practices to meet their future professional needs in both primary and secondary schools. The curriculum covers four areas: Music History, Theory and Composition, Performance, and Music Education. The Music Education area provides specialised training in contemporary methods and approaches to develop the skills, knowledge and attitude for teachers to work effectively and professionally in today's schools.

Education Studies

Education Studies gives students the chance to study teaching and learning from an interdisciplinary perspective. Students will study early childhood/school education from psychological, sociological, philosophical, pedagogical and other perspectives. Students will develop a range of skills necessary for professional practice, such as problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, communication, social interaction, ethical decision making and global perspectives.

Discipline Major – Creative Arts and Culture (CAC) Studies

The Foundation Seminar in the Arts and three Foundation Courses expose students to dance, drama, theatre and media. 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 Music 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. These courses adopt an integrative and interdisciplinary approach, underpinned by the belief that the arts relate closely to studies in other disciplines such as Literature, Sociology, and Cultural Theory.

Career Prospects/Professional Qualifications

Graduates of the programme will be creative and disciplined thinkers, fluent in written, oral and music communication. With professional enthusiasm, students are equipped with specialized subject knowledge, contemporary teaching strategies and skills in curriculum planning for Music 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. Future job/advanced study opportunities are numerous. Our graduates will possess the following qualifications and job/study opportunities:

  1. Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in Hong Kong;
  2. Ability to work competently in a broad range of positions such as curators for art museums and galleries, administrators of arts organizations, researchers in cultural studies, musicians, and art educators; and
