One prominent feature of the humanities, both at HKUST and in global academia, is the importance of single-authored monographs as indicators of scholarly excellence. We take great pride in the books that HUMA faculty have published with many of the world’s leading academic presses, including Cambridge University Press, Columbia University Press, Harvard University Press, the University of Hawai‘i Press, Oxford University Press, and Stanford University Press.
The Division of Humanities
offers a wide range of concentrations, including Linguistics; Literature, Film, and Media Studies; History and Anthropology; and Philosophy and Religion. In line with the University's aim to produce specialists who will not only excel in their technical expertise but also be equipped with a broad outlook on life and the world, the Division offers a diversity of courses for undergraduates in science, engineering, and business and management.
