Aims of Minor

With its self-consciously interdisciplinary character, the minor programme is dedicated to the study of the art, material culture and history of China and Asia as well as ancient and contemporary through teaching, research, exhibition, visit and community education.

Generally speaking, the disciplines of art history and archaeology provide a vivid understanding of how the past informs our present through its focus on the archaeological/historical/artistic remains including jade, pottery, bronze, sculpture, painting, calligraphy of the human past. With references to archaeological/historical/artistic productions and materials, our courses focus on the major issues in human history, discuss theories related to archaeology, anthropology, aesthetics etc, and examine the most updated techniques for investigating, reconstructing, interpreting and preserving the archaeological sites and findings as well as artistic productions. In addition, by imparting essential analytical and integrating knowledge to students, the minor courses equip students with the ability to think critically and improves their reading and writing skills, which are essential at the workplace today. Site visit and museum tour are also the most important teaching activities. By exploring closely at objects within their artistic, historical, social, and technological contexts, students will develop skills of visual perception and of relating the objects and theories.
