War studies are historically, socially and politically significant from interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspectives. This series of new courses on war studies, including (1) Wars in Late Qing Dynasty, (2) The Second Sino-Japanese War, 1931-1945 and (3) Hong Kong in the Second World War from 1941 to 1945, aim to arouse interest of students in the study of wars, diplomacy and governance of China from the Qing Dynasty to the Nationalist era, including Hong Kong under the Japanese rule. For those who are interested in history, war studies and diplomacy, these courses will enrich them with a deeper understanding of different perspectives on wars. Field visits will also be organized to tour military sites in Hong Kong.

The study of wars and domestic turbulence is the study of the Chinese history. The study of military and diplomatic history also help us better understand China’s history and its challenges of modernization.

These new courses will help promote national education and our student’s historical consciousness and deeper understanding of China’s military modernization, domestic governance and diplomatic encounters with the West.
