Starting from the 2016 intake, Faculty of Arts will implement a Hybrid Admission Model adopting a programme-based admission system in parallel with the current broad-based admission system to provide greater flexibility for the students. Apart from the current Bachelor of Arts (Hons) programme, an additional seven programme choices including Chinese, Contemporary English Studies, Cultural Studies, History, Philosophy, Translation and Visual Studies will be offered for selection under the new admission model.
At the same time a student-design major scheme will be opened to outstanding students of the Bachelor of Arts (Hons) programme who attained a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above at the end of the first year of study. They are allowed to pursue a unique combination of courses across the seven arts disciplines to gain a deeper understanding of a particular theme or body of ideas from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.
According to Prof Mark Hampton, Associate Dean and Director of Undergraduate Studies of Faculty of Arts, under the scheme students who designate their own major disciplines will be allowed to put together a unique combination of courses, culminating in an independent research project. This will enable them to take charge of their own education and give them much more freedom than traditional majors do.
