Bachelor of Social Sciences (Hons) in Sociology and Bachelor of Education (Hons) in Liberal Studies Teaching

After five years of full-time study, students graduate with a Bachelor’s degree with honours in Sociology (BSocSc) and a Bachelor’s degree with honours in Education (BEd). The BEd degree focuses on the teaching of Liberal Studies, a core subject at senior secondary level.  The Double Degree provides a deep knowledge and understanding of Sociology, and at the same time, prepares students to be professionally qualified teachers. This arrangement ensures a close association between the development of subject knowledge and the practice of teaching.

 

Objectives and Features

Upon completion of the Sociology component, students should be able to:

  • provide knowledge on the persistence and changes in social institutions;
  • promote critical understanding of social values and meanings of behavior;
  • offer training in independent social research; and
  • develop perspectives and skills relevant to a wide range of careers.

 

Upon successfully completion of the Education component in the programme, students should be able to:

  • develop a functional knowledge of psychology, sociology and philosophy that is essential for understanding the aims and the processes of education;
  • develop a foundation for pedagogical content knowledge for effective Liberal Studies teaching;
  • develop an essential knowledge for effective functioning within the teaching profession;
  • acquire effective strategies for planning, conducting and evaluating Liberal Studies teaching;
  • enhance generic skills to support daily work and professional development; and
  • demonstrate a reflective and sensitive mind in educational practices and social issues to uphold professional integrity and engage in life-long learning.

 

The Double Degrees pay equal emphasis on Sociology and Education throughout the years. The majors provide good foundation for the pedagogical knowledge that a Liberal Studies teacher will need. The University’s General Education courses can further broaden students’ horizon. Students can also minor in a third discipline with credit units from elective courses.

 

During their studies, students will gain understanding and appreciation of teachers’ work in Hong Kong schools through several periods of teaching practice. Besides Liberal Studies, students can also learn about the teaching of subjects within the Personal, Social and Humanities Education (PSHE) Key Learning Area.

 

Graduates will hold teaching qualification recognised by the Hong Kong Government. Besides teaching, the programmes also offer an excellent grounding for many career routes which draw on the deep study of a discipline and the organisational, interpersonal and professional skills which are the characteristics of a qualified teacher. 

Admission

Students who are interested in this programme will be admitted through the Broad-based Admission scheme. They will be provided with a broad-based social sciences training, and theoretical and practical knowledge of educational practices in their first year of study.
