These cover political sociology (including political institutions, political culture and political behaviour), government and public policy-making, international relations and political economy, political theory and political thought, and political methodology.
In geographical terms the programme focuses on the politics of Hong Kong, mainland China, and the Asia Pacific region, on the basis that it is essential to give Hong Kong students a thorough understanding of their own political environment. The programme seeks to stimulate the students' interest, and to sharpen their awareness by incorporating a systematic comparative and international dimension, drawing both on the China Studies and European Studies programmes.
