This is a part-time degree programme offered locally by Edinburgh Napier University (ENU) in collaboration with HKU SPACE. It offers students an opportunity to study different social science disciplines such as psychology, sociology, cultural geography and politics, which enable them to develop a detailed understanding of, and the research skills to investigate, the social world, relationships within it and the social forces that act on us all. This knowledge and specialist skills will be particularly useful to employers across all sectors.

The programme is designed to educate, inform and inspire students to face the complexities, challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. The aim of the programme is to educate students to meet the needs of the Hong Kong Society, in particular careers with the government agencies and the social service sector, by producing graduates capable of managing the highly complex requirements of these roles. The programme combines the study of different social science disciplines. From the perspective of these related and fascinating disciplines, students will learn to examine, investigate and understand human life and human experience.

Applicants who possess the entry qualifications approved by Edinburgh Napier University would be exempted a total of 240 credits, and will be required to complete only 240 credits for graduation.

This programme is delivered on a part-time basis*. Normally, classes will be held on weekday evenings and/or Saturdays.

With full exemptions, students can complete the programme in a minimum of 2 years (6 trimesters), part-time mode (40 credits per trimester). The final year of study will be offered subject to sufficient numbers of continuing students.
