The University of Saint Joseph is a leading international university in China’s Special Administrative Region (SAR) of Macao, where the creative and cultural industries are acknowledged as a strategic area for the development of a vibrant and pioneering cluster of businesses and entrepreneurs. The field of Creative Industries represents an innovative paradigm for our contemporary knowledge-based society, closely associated with recent trends in cultural activities, digital emergent technologies, and sustainable urban development.
Created in 2012, the new Faculty of Creative Industries integrates some of the most successful programmes of our university, ranging from the most traditional sub-sectors of the Creative Industries, such as Design, Fashion Design, Architecture, Digital Cinema and Communication & Media, to new fields of study that increasingly converge on the creative domain, such as Information Systems and Environment & Urban Development.
Some of our programmes, such as Architecture, Fashion Design and Digital Cinema, are unique within the higher education system of Macao, but above all, the integration of each of these areas within the same faculty provides a unique multidisciplinary community in which students have access to exceptional education opportunities and a work environment that allows them to extend their abilities to the utmost.
With our community of students and academic staff, sited within the exponentially growing entertainment and business environment of Macao, USJ is already a leading university in the field of Creative Industries in East Asia.
