JUPAS HKDSE students will apply for admission to first-year studies at the Department of Applied Social Sciences. During their first year of study, students will study a broad range of Gateway Education (GE) and College/Department core courses. Students will enter a major after one year of study. The top 40% of students of the Department [based on (i) cumulative grade point average (CGPA) at the end of Semester B; (ii) no failed grades in any courses in Semesters A and B; and (iii) completion of at least 30 credit units in Semesters A and B, including the number of credit units specified by the College/ Department for its required courses] will have free choice of the majors offered by the Department. The other 60% of students will be allocated a major within the Department, subject to the availability of places and the selection criteria set by individual majors.
Current major options: Criminology and Sociology; Psychology; Social Work. The University reserves the right to make changes to the major offerings.

The new four-year curriculum allows students to gain in-depth knowledge through major studies, and diversify students’ learning through GE courses, electives and optional minors. Here in SS, we have Departmental requirements in the first year of the curriculum, which exposes students to the three major disciplines prior to major declaration, giving students the opportunity to make a more informed decision on their choice of major. As well as the three courses which make up the departmental requirements, SS also offers students the opportunity to get involved in non-credit bearing course, which help students with the adjustment to university life.
