Administrated by the Department of Visual Studies (VS) at Lingnan University, MACAH combines two disciplines into one: museum curating and art history, with options to engage in practicum and study abroad programmes. Aside from required and elective courses, students can choose to curate a group exhibition or complete a research dissertation as capstone experience. An internship programme and an overseas summer school are arranged to enhance students’ international exposure, and their interaction with art historians, collectors and museum professionals. Students can also benefit from the insights and experiences of eminent scholars and experienced curators who are involved in our events at VS.
MACAH is suitable for those who wish to pursue advanced study in art history, and professional careers in museums, curatorial and other art-related industries. Through studying art theories and collections, curatorial practice, art projects, entrepreneurial initiatives and professional training, MACAH offers students multiple perspectives to explore and engage in the development of art and cultural landscapes in Hong Kong, Asia and beyond.
