& Further Studies
BA(HDT) graduates use their degree to move into a range of careers. These include all of the traditional legal pathways – solicitors, barristers, etc. – but also an additional range of possibilities opened up by the training in Arts and Literary Studies made available by this unique degree.
With outstanding English and communication skills, critical analysis ability and wide-ranging interests, BA(HDT) graduates are suited for careers in law firms, NGOs, government organisations, private companies, and many more – as well as corporate and consultancy career paths.
Our graduates moving into legal careers may be particularly advantaged by the additional scope of interests and expertise that their Arts degree gives them, making the process of interviewing for training positions as solicitors or barristers an easier one.
HKU provides a number of resources for careers. For more information, see the HKU faculty of Arts.
