Programme Aims and Features
The Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies BA(AS) is a four-year, full-time program that introduces students to architecture as a cultural discipline. It is the first degree needed to qualify as an architect, and provides an excellent general education that gives students the confidence to pursue related careers both within the design professions and further afield.
The course of study is centered on research based learning in the design studio and is structured to foster a sense of community, develop deep knowledge of the discipline, and encourage creativity. Design studios look at diverse contemporary issues relevant to Hong Kong and the world and are structured by five thematic platforms that introduce students to a range of methodologies and approaches to the territorial, political, technological, urban and environmental issues that comprise architecture as a cultural discipline.
The BA(AS) program offers numerous opportunities for knowledge exchange and international experience, including study-abroad at the Faculty’s Shanghai Study Centre, semester exchanges with leading international schools of architecture, study trips to foundational sites of Asian architecture and urbanism, and hands-on experience through the summer field studies workshops. Courses in the program are offered in the areas of Architectural Design, History and Theory of Architecture, Technology, and Visual Communication.
The BA(AS) degree is recognized by the Commonwealth Association of Architects (CAA), Hong Kong Institute of Architects (HKIA), the Architects Registration Board (ARB) and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
