About MSc(Cons)

The Master of Science in Conservation equips graduates with the technical competencies and intellectual skills required to guide decision-making in conservation planning, management and design in the 21st century.

The programme emphasizes the integration of sustainability in conservation training, which enables graduates to address the growing risks and challenges to built heritage conservation, including climate change, disasters, and various pressures from urbanization, gentrification and tourism development. Through a combination of dedicated seminars, studios and elective courses, students will gain theoretical and practical insights into the latest policies, methodologies and best practices and apply their knowledge to real-life projects.

With its internationally recognized expertise in planning, architecture and building construction, the Faculty of Architecture at HKU provides an ideal interdisciplinary setting for educating well-rounded conservation professionals and future heritage leaders.

Programme highlights

  • Learn about the latest heritage policies, legal frameworks and methodologies for built heritage conservation.
  • Choose from one of the two streams of specialization: Conservation Planning and Management; and Design for Conservation.
  • Gain insights into different types of heritage schemes in Hong Kong, Greater China and the Southeast Asian region.
  • Acquire practical experience through individual and team-based studio projects.
  • Develop communication skills to advocate conservation for local communities and engage with multiple stakeholders.
  • Travel to an outstanding heritage site in the region.

Graduates may take up professional positions in governments, NGOs, architectural and planning practices as well as heritage consultancies in Hong Kong, Mainland China and beyond. They may also pursue further studies in the MPhil and PhD programmes at HKU and other reputable universities around the world.
