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.
At present, HSS offers high-quality master programmes: Master of Arts in Translation and Interpreting Studies (MAT&I), Master of Arts in Simultaneous Interpreting (MASI), Master of Arts (MA) in Global Studies and Master of Science (MSc) in Applied Psychology. At the undergraduate level, HSS offers a high-quality Bachelor of Arts (BA) programme in Translation, English Studies and Applied Psychology (BSc). In the near future, HSS will start a series of new and interdisciplinary programmes at both bachelor and master levels.
High-quality programmes are only possible when we have high-caliber faculty members, and when we have outstanding students. For this purposes, we recruit our faculty members globally by using rigorous standards as used in internationally competitive universities, such as the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). We have also been fortunate in having both undergraduate and postgraduate students who are the cream of the crop in their peer groups. In HSS, we strive to build a rich and supportive learning environment to help each student to maximize their potentials.
I am delighted to invite you to visit our website and official WeChat platform for various exciting opportunities of teaching and learning at our school. I am even more delighted to invite you to visit our brand new campus to experience our rich, unique and supportive institutional culture and environment.
