Minors are modules that you can select on the basis of your own personal interests and needs. On this page you can see an overview of the minors offered by HKU.

Are you looking for more in-depth knowledge about a specific subject within your profession? Or have you always wanted to get a taste of a different (art) discipline? It’s what the minors are for. During your minor studies, you get a chance to further specialise or diversify your knowledge. Additionally, a minor always looks good on your CV.
