LIBERAL STUDIES

Short Description

The Faculty of Education offers this five-year full-time programme leading to a Bachelor of Education (Liberal Studies) in collaboration with the Faculties of Arts, Medicine, Science, and Social Science. It trains professional teachers of Liberal Studies for Hong Kong’s New Senior Secondary Curriculum.

The programme consists of two major components: educational courses (Educational Studies, Pedagogical Content Knowledge, Educational and Teaching Methodology, and Research Experience and Teaching Practice) and courses from three areas of study (Self and Personal Development, Society and Culture, and Science, Technology and the Environment).

Upon fulfilment of the programme requirements, graduates are awarded a Bachelor of Education (BEd) degree in Liberal Studies, which is recognised as equivalent to a Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE).
