Welcome to the website of School of General Education. It gives me great pleasure to introduce the School to you.
We are educators who have a keen interest in grooming students’ character, competence and commitment. We also work in collaboration with various experts and non-government organizations in order to make good use of their knowledge, network and resources for the education of our students.
The School has two affiliated departments: Department of Chinese and Department of English. Colleagues of the two departments focus their teaching on language and communication, one of the important strands in General Education (GE).
We adopt an inter-disciplinary approach to the study of GE and stress the informal as well as formal curriculum. Our GE courses place emphasis on academic rigor as well as real-world relevance. They will provide students with the theoretical foundation for understanding the living context and analyzing their practical experience.
Students are encouraged to apply their GE knowledge and insights to better understand and address real world issues. They are expected to reflect on their practical experience so as to inform and shape their theoretical understanding, personal meanings and course of actions.
Lastly, may I wish all students a fulfilling and happy learning journey.
Head of School of General Education
