The programme gives a primary focus on Chinese history, and offers a series of electives with a spectrum of theme-based/special topics on Hong Kong and its neighbouring areas. We also have choices of elective courses elaborating on China's relations with the world. Students will become aware of China's role and position in the global development. The curriculum is designed to cover local, regional and world history subjects. By studying a comprehensive set of required courses, students are given solid training in the study of history as a discipline, which allows them to have a general understanding of current situations of the world.
