Hong Kong Baptist University


Geography/ History/ Sociology and Liberal Studies Teaching (Double Degree) 地理/ 歷史/ 社會學及通識教學 (雙學位課程)


Short Description

Each of the three double degrees is a five-year full-time programme leading to two degree awards. Each programme is jointly offered by the Department of Education Studies, with one of the Departments of Geography, History or Sociology, and prepares students in two distinct disciplines. Students who successfully complete the programme will hold a recognised teaching qualification for schools in Hong Kong.

The aims and learning outcomes of the Geography, History or Sociology components are the same as those for the respective single degrees. Please refer to the three Departments’ websites for details.

For the education component, students will develop personal and professional qualities that enable them to function effectively within the teaching profession in Hong Kong. They will master important theoretical and practical knowledge of educational practices, and be able to teach the subject of Liberal Studies effectively. An essential element of the education component is the Field Practice. A satisfactory completion of the Field Practice is a requirement for graduation. Students will be visited and assessed by supervisors of the Department of Education Studies during this stage of the programme.

In addition to two academic disciplines, students will also be exposed to knowledge and skills of many other fields through the General Education and Electives components of the programmes. The University also provides ample opportunity for local and foreign internships, study tours and overseas exchanges.

Career Opportunities

The double degrees will prepare students to enter a wide variety of careers. Other than joining the teaching profession, students can also embark on a career in the civil service, the business sector, or other civil society organizations. The programmes will provide students with flexibility that is increasingly valued in a fast-changing, globally-oriented city.
