The Master of Fine Arts in Creative Media is the first of its kind in Hong Kong. A degree with a long history in many prestigious European and North American universities, the MFA is commonly regarded as the highest level of academic qualification available in the creative arts. While the MFA once was primarily associated with the traditional fine arts, such as music and painting, it has since the 1960s become the standard “terminal” degree in programmes specializing in more technology-intensive creative fields, including computer-based media production.
The Master of Fine Arts in Creative Media (MFACM) emphasizes the integration of art, culture and technology. As an internationally-recognised terminal degree in the creative arts, the MFACM provides intensive and advanced training in digital audiovisual media and culture, animation, computer graphics, 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.
