Short Description

The Bachelor of Social Sciences in Asian and International Studies programme explores Asia’s place in the contemporary world and Hong Kong’s strategic position in the region and the world. It aims to develop students’ knowledge of socio-political, economic, and cultural processes of change occurring in Asia and to situate them in the broader international context, reflecting the increasing significance of Asia in world affairs. Through its interdisciplinary curriculum and training in social research, the Asian and International Studies major seeks to equip students with analytic skills of value to organisations in diverse economic sectors in Hong Kong, Asia and beyond. The programme is taught by faculty members from diverse disciplines of sociology, anthropology and political science. It enhances students’ critical reasoning and problem-solving skills, and extends and deepens their regional and global perspectives. Upon graduation, students are well equipped to pursue careers in both public and private sectors in a variety of fields, including business, project-planning and management, public relations, politics, research and education, mass media, politics, social enterprises and non-governmental and community organisations.
