The Master of Fine Arts in Creative Media (MFACM) emphasizes the integration of art, culture and technology. As an internationally recognized terminal degree in the creative arts, the MFACM provides intensive and advanced training in digital animation, film/video production, interactive media and new media art. A cutting edge art programme with a global vision, the MFACM is a hub and a laboratory for creative exchanges and professional collaboration regionally as well as internationally. Our students came from all over the world including Canada, China, France, Germany, India, New Zealand, the Philippines, Portugal and the United States. Non-local students are encouraged to apply since we are strongly committed to artistic and cultural diversities.
To be eligible for admission, you must satisfy the General Entrance Requirements and must have :
A bachelor’s degree or equivalent, with preferably some working experience in the media industry.
You are also highly recommended to submit a portfolio of creative and/or academic work and/or a self-introduction letter directly to the School of Creative Media. For the latest submission deadline, please refer to the School's website.
Applicants without the specified qualifications may still be considered for admission to the programme if they are able to present equivalent qualifications and artistic credentials. All applicants must have a demonstrated capacity to pursue the programme.
The School assumes that applicants will have achieved a basic level of computer literacy. Also, some prior experience with photography and/or video production is encouraged. Accepted students may be advised to take intensive courses or take additional coursework together with MFACM courses to make up for knowledge/skills gaps.
Applicants whose entrance qualification is obtained from an institution where the medium of instruction is not English should also fulfill the following minimum English proficiency requirement:
The MFACM is designed as an intensive, project-based programme. The programme consists of 54 credit units, and will be offered in a full-time (two-year) mode. The curriculum includes 24 credits of required courses, and 30 credits of elective courses. Out of the 24 credits of required courses, a total of 21 credits are dedicated to project-based studio classes. The other required course within the curriculum is “Digital Audiovisual Culture”, a Year 1 Semester A course intended to provide students with a contextual foundation in aesthetic, cultural, and theoretical principles relevant to the programme.
The elective courses will be organized into three different areas, namely: Practice, Context and Benchmark. Students are required to take a minimum number of credit units within each area. These areas of interest are not meant to be rigid disciplinary requirements but rather suggestive guidance for the students in planning their study and career.
Assessment in all classes normally will be entirely through coursework, which will consist primarily of practical and creative projects.
In general, the
