This major explores Asia’s significance in contemporary world politics and Hong Kong’s strategic positions within China, Asia and the world. It aims to develop students’ knowledge of the socio-political, economic and cultural changes occurring in Asian countries and to situate them in the broader international context. Students will learn to contemplate Asia's increasingly significant roles in world affairs and examine these roles with both theoretical and practical analytical tools. Through its interdisciplinary curriculum and social research training, the major seeks to equip students with analytical skills that are of great value to organizations in different administrative and economic sectors throughout Hong Kong, Asia and beyond. In addition, it enhances students’ critical reasoning and problem-solving skills, and will deepen their regional and global perspectives.
