- These programmes will consider Other Language subjects at Grade E or above as unspecified elective subject.
These programmes are 5-year full-time programmes leading to the award of two degrees. The education degree provides students with a recognised teaching qualification, competent in teaching the Personal, Social and Humanities Education (PSHE) Key Learning Area in local schools.
Students will take the same General Education curriculum as other single-degree students of HKBU. The curriculum for Geography, History and Sociology is basically the same as the respective single-degrees. Academic staff of the Departments of Geography, History or Sociology will also be responsible for supervision of students’ Honours Projects at the final year. Students will be admitted into the programme on a broad-based basis and will choose their Major (Geography, History or Sociology) at the end of Year One.
The two degrees complement each other. The Major (Geography, History or Sociology) provides a solid foundation for the “pedagogical knowledge” that any subject teacher will need. The education degree develops students into competent teachers of PSHE subjects. Despite the tight study schedule and compact curriculum, students could still make use of credit units under “university electives” to pursue a minor (e.g. psychology, economics, Chinese).
Student Learning Experiences
Students will participate in one School Experience and two Supervised Teaching Practices in local schools. Satisfactory performance in these field practices is essential for the completion of the Bachelor of Education degree. Participation in foreign exchange coordinated by the International Office, and the one-semester offcampus programme organised by the Faculty of Social Sciences, are highly encouraged. Students will also have many opportunities to engage in service learning, such as acting as after-school tutors for primary school students.
Graduates will be competent teachers with a qualification recognised by the Education Bureau. Besides joining the education field, graduates can also enter the civil service, the business sector, or other civil society organisations.
