Aims

Through studying topics of contemporary relevance — such as social institutions and issues in Hong Kong and mainland China, tourism, globalization, crime and punishment, social administration and social policy — students are trained to be analytical and reflective thinkers with greater social and cultural awareness. Courses with an applied dimension from psychology, economics and politics are included for a more integrated perspective on society.
