SOCIAL SCIENCE

Short DescriptionUpdated

Social Science broad-based is designed for students who are undecided about their majors or would like to have more time to explore different options. This programme provides applicants with the option of entering the Faculty of Social Science without committing to a particular Major programme. Students follow a common study plan in their first year, after which they will declare any one of the following Major programmes without any competition or quota imposed to continue their studies in Years 2-4.

  • Architectural Studies
  • Economics
  • Geography and Resource Management
  • Urban Studies
  • Government and Public Administration
  • Journalism and Communication
  • Global Communication
  • Psychology
  • Sociology
  • Global Studies
  • Data Science and Policy Studies

By taking different Major foundation courses in the first year, students gain first-hand experience of a variety of Social Science disciplines while at the same time seek counselling and academic advice from teachers and senior students. After some exploration in the first year of study, students can freely* choose their Majors based on their academic strength, interest and career aspirations.

*Admission to certain programme(s) would be subject to relevant conditions.
