What our students say...

i

Unique in Hong Kong

CUHK is the only tertiary institution in Hong Kong with an anthropology department. Anthropology is the study of human cultures and societies. It examines cultural differences around the world by studying human values and social practices using both qualitative and quantitative methods. The programme focuses on social and cultural anthropology, as well as archaeology.
