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 plays an instrumental role in this development as the leading force in creative media education and research in Hong Kong.

In addition to research degree programmes, the School also offers two taught postgraduate programmes: MFA in Creative Media and MA in Creative Media (Media Cultures Stream / Curating Art & Media Stream). For application and programme information, please click here.
