HISTORY

Short Description

The curriculum offered by the Department of History is designed to cultivate students’ interest in human civilisations and to equip them with the ability to apply historical knowledge to their lives and careers.

The curriculum embraces diversity and applicability as its guiding principles. Hong Kong is an international city in which the cultures of East and West meld seamlessly. CUHK has promoted international academic exchange from its inception, which has favoured and given rise to the Department’s adoption of a comparative, interdisciplinary approach to curriculum design with public history as its research focus. Students are encouraged to analyse history from multiple and interdisciplinary perspectives. Courses are grouped into National/Regional History, Comparative History, Public History and Topic Studies, and students write a graduation thesis in their final year.

In their first two years of study, students are required to take a number of basic courses, including Tradition and Transformation in Chinese History, Tradition and Transformation in Western History, Historiography, and Introduction to World History, as well as History for Today, a course offered by the History Department as part of the Arts Faculty’s Core Package.

Our Department has worked actively to nurture talented students. We have many scholarships supporting students, including the Wang Teh-chao Memorial Prizes,  Professor Tsang Shui-lung Memorial Scholarship, the Sin Wai Kin Scholarship and the Professor So Hing-bun Scholarships. The Department has also introduced a series of internship programmes that give students opportunities to gain practical experience working in a variety of organisations. The Department also arranges overseas study tours to broaden students’ perspectives. In addition, students have opportunities to participate in a variety of University-organised exchange programmes, including short visits to or study at universities in the UK, the US, Japan and elsewhere.
