Over time, the Department has developed into a prominent department in the Faculty of Social Science offering Master’s and Ph.D. levels of training in addition to the original undergraduate training.
The main objective of the “School Culture Day Scheme” (the Scheme) is to encourage students to visit our performing arts venues, museums and libraries during school hours in the school year to take part in cultural programmes specifically designed for them. It is hoped that through the Scheme, students would be encouraged to cultivate and creative mind and regard arts, history and science as part of their learning process and an integral part of everyday life. Apart from stimulating the creative thinking of students, it is hoped that the elements of arts, history and science in these programmes may be integrated into school context and daily life. Ideally, it is expected that each student under the Scheme would have participated at least once in these cultural activities within the school year.
