It is believed that change and volatility are essential elements of life in the globalised world. To thrive in this fast-changing, unpredictable environment, it is essential to develop one’s ability to cope with, and even foresee, the challenges. Knowing oneself and others, mastering the logic underlying change, and understanding its consequences are how we could find our niche and prosper in the society. It is to this end that the programme of Associate of Social Sciences (ASocSci) has been developed to build a gateway to the academic and professional world.
Programme Aims & Features
The broad-based curriculum covers major social sciences disciplines, such as political science, psychology and sociology. The programme focuses on enhancing students’ understanding of human social interaction, social groups and the logic underlying social change. Students will be trained to evaluate social phenomena objectively, scientifically and critically as social scientists. The programme aims at developing students’ social consciousness, international awareness, critical and logical reasoning ability, and self-learning ability.

Studying in HKU SPACE CC was a truly empowering, educational experience for me. The lecturers who taught me in Social Sciences had made a great deal of effort to make their students realize how interesting it can be to reflect on our daily experience. CC is a place that offers changes. Treasure it and you will never regret.
