    Aims

    Built on the intellectual foundation of sociology, the applied social studies curriculum guides students to acquire an understanding of social list focusing on social policy and criminology. Our sociology courses look into many topics of contemporary relevance — such as globalization, social institutions and issues in Hong Kong and mainland China, crime and criminal justice, social administration and social policy, aging in society, family, gender and sexuality. Courses with an applied dimension from psychology, economics, politics and public administration are also integrated into the curriculum to develop students into all-round analytical and reflective thinkers.

    Career prospects

    Upon graduation, our students will be well-equipped with useful knowledge and transferable generic skills for careers in the civil service, social and community services, law enforcement, education, social and business research, marketing, public relations, media and communication as well as other commercial sectors.

    Further studies

    Our programme prepares graduates to further their studies in the social sciences in local and overseas universities. Our graduates have been successful in their pursuits of masters and doctoral degrees as well as professional qualifications in the areas of social work and welfare studies, public policy studies, special education, management studies, surveying and nursing.
