Short Description

This is a five-year full-time Double Degree programme, providing students with knowledge and skills in the academic discipline of Education and Geography/History/Sociology. Graduates will receive a recognised teaching qualification. 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.

Most courses on-campus is taught by a combination of lecture-discussion and seminars. Some courses will be held at late afternoon and Saturday morning. Blended learning is also commonly used. For Field Practice in schools, students will be supervised on-site by school mentors and assessed by supervisors from the Department of Education Studies. Students will also be observed by peers.

During the 5th year of study, students complete their Honours Projects under the guidance of the Department of Geography/History/Sociology.

Unique Features

Double degree students have “dual identities” as they are majoring in both Education and another Social Sciences discipline. They take Geography/History/Sociology courses together with those who major in these “single degrees”. For Education courses, students from various Majors (Geography/History/Sociology) will team together, providing them with many chances to share their knowledge and insights gained from the Majors.

Student Learning Experiences

The University provides ample opportunities of local and foreign internships, study tours and overseas exchanges. Field Practice in local schools is an essential element of the Bachelor of Education degree within the programme and students must complete them satisfactorily. Field Practice consists of two components: School Experience and Supervised Teaching Practice. Please refer to the programme website for details.

Career Opportunities

Graduates will obtain a recognised teaching qualification. Besides joining the education sector, they will also be able to embark on a career in the business sector, the civil service, or other civil society organisations.
