Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims

This programme responds to the growing demand for professionals who can bridge the gap between artificial intelligence (AI) and the humanities. Therefore, it aims to foster interdisciplinary excellence by combining knowledge of AI with knowledge of the humanities. In particular, by providing students with a comprehensive education that integrates technical AI skills with humanistic insights, the programme aims to equip graduates with a holistic understanding of AI’s impact on language, communication, the arts, and culture.


This is the first programme in Hong Kong and the world to allow students to focus on generative AI within the context of the humanities. The unique interdisciplinary approach of the programme draws on cutting-edge research insights into the humanities and AI, and aims to nurture a new generation of interdisciplinary professionals capable of exploiting AI technologies to advance humanities-related studies and applications. Thus, graduates can address complex societal challenges and contribute to innovation in various industries.
