MFA in Creative Media (MFACM)
The MFACM is a two-year program that emphasizes the integration of contemporary art, culture and technology. It provides an intensive learning environment and advanced training in digital audiovisual media and culture, in the areas of animation, computer graphics, digital fabrication, data-driven design, film/video production, interactive media, and new media art. The MFACM is a cutting-edge programme with a global vision. It is a hub and a laboratory for creative exchanges and professional collaboration regionally and internationally.

MA in Creative Media (MACM)
The MACM offers a humanities-oriented curriculum intended to complement the School of Creative Media’s mission to investigate the most significant artistic, professional, and socially relevant aspects of contemporary mediated expression. The MACM takes full advantage of its integration in one of the most renown new media art schools of Asia, with a vibrant postgrad community of passionate interdisciplinary researchers and strong links with the regional artistic and intellectual scenes.

The Curating Art and Media (CAM) Stream aims to develop the skills needed to curate, exhibit and communicate art in general and the use of media technologies in particular. Graduates will acquire solid skills in the planning, design and execution of exhibition projects and will gain practical knowledge in communication, documentation and archiving in order to be successful in their career in the art business as well as in museums.

The Media Cultures (MC) Stream provides a deepened and critical understanding of how the latest technological innovations and artistic practices reconfigure society, economy, culture and politics. Media theory, cultural studies, philosophy of technology and theories of world building are the core academic disciplines of this stream grounded in interdisciplinary approaches to humanities and technology. This stream is intended for media professionals and humanities graduates willing to develop their analytical skills and intellectual interests to become future leaders in art organisations, specialised journalism, academic and non-academic research sectors, publishing industries or further studies in PhD programmes.

CityU School of Creative Media
The region’s first such institution, the School of Creative Media was founded to nurture a new generation of interdisciplinary artists and creative media professionals, and to develop new ideas and technologies for the creative industries in Hong Kong, Mainland China, and abroad. Now over a decade later we continue to espouse and advance these aims as the clear leader in our field.

We bridge the boundaries between art and science and integrate traditional and new media. We value applied creativity, cultural awareness, and critical thinking as much as business sense and entrepreneurial success.

With Hong Kong thus emerging as a thriving hub of new media culture and creative industries in Asia and the world, the School of Creative Media plays an instrumental role in this development as the leading force in creative media education and research in Hong Kong.

Overseas Experience Awards
The School offers scholarships to MFA and MA students to take part in exchange programmes and summer schools in collaboration with other universities in Europe and Asia of the Shared Campus network.
