Sixth MOE Humanities Programme Centre at ACJC

Jan 2008    

THE Ministry of Education (MOE) has established a sixth Humanities Programme centre at Anglo-Chinese Junior College (ACJC) to nurture talent in the humanities.

The programme will include the Humanities Scholarships, which are offered by the MOE to encourage outstanding students to study the humanities at the pre-university level.

ACJC has a strong commitment to offer the Humanities Programme. It has had a consistent track record of MOE Humanities Scholars and there are currently 12 MOE Humanities Scholars in the college.

ACJC has an established tradition of excellence in English Literature, English Language and the Arts. In recognition of this commitment, it has been designated the W1 Cluster Centre for Excellence in Language Arts.

It is currently constructing a Centre for Performing Arts, which was scheduled for completion by the end of 2007, to enhance its facilities for Arts education and enrichment programmes.

As part of ACJC’s holistic Humanities Programme, the college is also an official centre for three MOE elective programmes: the Drama Elective Programme, the Music Elective Programme, and the English Language Elective Programme (from 2009). ACJC also has a very high candidature for A-level Art.

In November 2007, ACJC MOE Humanities Scholars travelled to Vietnam where humanities teachers from the college guided them in their interdisciplinary exploration of the economics, history, geography, literature and culture of Vietnam.
