Great news on our graduates in Bachelor of Social Sciences in Global and Environmental Studies (GES) programme.
In the most recent survey of GES graduates in late 2015, many of them are now working in the private and public sectors, including positions as project officers, teaching assistants, journalists, management trainees and merchandizers, while some are now environmental protection officers and customer representatives. Some graduates are pursuing Master degree studies in environmental management and urban planning.

Congratulations to the graduates of 2014 of Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Liberal Studies Education for their success in career development and further studies.
Many of them are employed in primary schools, secondary schools or other institutions in the education field. Some are working in governmental and non-governmental organizations such as government departments, social services sectors, banks, insurance and logistics companies, travel agencies, newspaper, airlines, etc.  A number of them also pursue further studies by enrolling in postgraduate programmes offered by local or overseas universities.
