About

Overview

Welcome to the School of Humanities and Social Science (HSS). In CUHK-Shenzhen, we emphasize both time-tested traditions and modernity, and combine Chinese cultures with global perspectives. As our university motto (“博文约礼”) indicates, our university provides a comprehensive education to broaden our students’ intellectual horizon and capacity, and to help our students to grow to be socially responsible citizens with global perspectives. HSS has two important missions for our university’s education. First, HSS provides university core courses for all university students in multiple areas, including general education, English language competency, Chinese language competency, physical education and fitness, basic competency in information technology (IT) applications, etc. These areas lay the foundation for the comprehensive education that all CUHK-Shenzhen students receive.
