The Division of Culture and Creativity (DCC) at the UIC is dedicated to inspiring students’ creative expression and cultural growth. Grounded in the core disciplines of Cinema and Television, Culture, Creativity and Management, Media Arts and Design, and Musical Performance (minor programme), DCC is the hub for creativity and entrepreneurship in design, communication, arts management and media arts in the Guangdong – Hong Kong – Macau Greater Bay Area.

Our diverse and flexible academic curriculums offer students an extraordinarily wide range of possibilities to purse their areas of interest.
