What our students say...

i

Leader in History Education

The undergraduate programme offered by the History Department at CUHK is a leader in the field of history education in Hong Kong. Its origin can be traced back to the History Programme offered by New Asia College in the late 1940s. The founder of New Asia College, Professor Ch’ien Mu, a renowned scholar in Chinese History, also headed the Department of Chinese History and Literature of the College at that time.

Seeing History from Different Perspectives

The programme allows students to see Chinese History through the eyes of the world, and world history through the eyes of China. The curriculum integrates Eastern and Western learning with thorough understanding of the historical development and the changes from the past to the present.
