Programme Aims and Features
The ideal choice for students who are interested in studying human behaviour and society, or who wish to become future leaders in public service, education, industry and commerce. The flexible programme structure provides students with freedom to decide which discipline they want to major in after the first year of study, without any quota constraint.

They can also opt for a multidisciplinary programme as another major: Cognitive Science; Counselling; Criminology; Global Studies; Media and Cultural Studies; and Urban Governance. Students can also opt for a second major or a minor in a variety of disciplines in the Faculties of Arts, Business and Economics, Engineering, Law and Science.
