MAGHE is an interdisciplinary programme and brings together courses in global history, the history of education and comparative education. It is geared towards a deeper understanding of the present state of education and will provide students a grounded perspective on the future. The programme aims at cultivating graduates with an awareness of the historical processes that forged and continue to shape modern education systems in East Asia and worldwide, and thereby equips students with professionally relevant academic knowledge. It can also serve as a stepping stone for doctoral studies.
The MATESOL programme provides a practical, professionally-focused Master’s degree for graduates who are in need of an advanced academic qualification in TESOL. It is designed for English language teachers, teacher educators and language professionals working in areas of language teaching, language-in-education policy, curriculum design and planning, materials development and assessment in Hong Kong, mainland China or overseas.
