Current Students

Liberal Studies Education

*This programme has been phased out and has not accepted any new students since 2021/22.

The programme is unique in its interdisciplinary and inquiry-based approach to the study of issues related to self and personal development, society and culture, as well as technology and environment that are the major foci of Liberal Studies under the new curriculum reform. It integrates concepts, skills and values in the learning, teaching and research of relevant issues/problems, and allows students to develop multiple perspectives and higher-order thinking skills.
