As a university museum, public education is at the heart of UMAG’s core programming. Launched in 2020, UMAG_STArts is a new initiative that explores the symbiotic relationship between science, technology, and the arts through the interdisciplinary studies of art history, conservation, and novel forms of technology. Learn with UMAG is one of the initiative’s first projects, featuring programmes of educational activities, digital learning resources, and exhibitions at our newly refurbished study gallery.

Teaching & Internships
The University Museum and Art Gallery (UMAG) is a teaching museum. Museum staff instruct undergraduate students (courses FINE2056, FINE4005, MUSE2001 and MUSE2002) and supervise postgraduate students specialising in art, history and collecting. We contribute to courses taught by other HKU departments, including the Common Core Course, and programmes administered by the Hong Kong Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences, HKU SPACE and the Architectural Conservation Programmes.
