AIS Taught Postgraduate Programmes For HSE students
Brief overview of the Department of Asian and International Studies The department's mission is to explore Asia, conducting research and teaching at the highest international levels. Our faculty generate new knowledge of socio-political, economic and cultural processes of change in Asian countries, situating these changes in the broader international context. With backgrounds in Anthropology, History, Political Science, and Sociology, the department takes cross- disciplinary approaches to key questions about gender, the environment, globalization, international development, migration and cities, political change, religion and security. Twenty-two languages are spoken in the department, with most academic staff conducting research in more than one language. The department combines comprehensive undergraduate teaching with an outstanding set of postgraduate Master's and PhD programmes.

Master of Social Sciences in Development Studies 發展研究社會科學碩士 Commenced in the Fall 2006, this is a self-financed programme for practitioners, educators, staff in NGOs, media, and government, and persons working for large international organizations which operate in Asian societies, or which deal with Asian development issues. Enrolled in Hong Kong's only programme in Development Studies, students could develop expertise on human rights, social movements, global institutions, policy-making, gender, ethnicity, labour and environment, as well as to build capacity to advocate policy changes and to implement development projects. Master of Arts in International Studies 國際研究文學碩士 The Programme, commencing in 2010, is the first and the ONLY one of its kind in Hong Kong that develops expertise on issues of Asian and International Studies. This is an essential skill for anyone who wants to understand the future and forge an international, successful career. This Programme positions students to better comprehend and manage future challenges and issues - either in Asia or in other parts of the world. The Programme caters to local students as well as overseas students from both developed and developing countries, both within the region and elsewhere. You will be taught by a group of Asian and International scholars who have research and teaching expertise as well as in-country professional experience. Master of Arts in Modern Asian Studies 現代亞洲研究文學碩士 The Department of Asian and International Studies (AIS) in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences of the City University of Hong Kong is planning to launch a postgraduate degree focusing on Modern Asia in the academic year The one year full- time or two year part-time postgraduate degree will equip students with essential skills in understanding Asia as a region, keeping in sight its sub-regional dynamics, and its relation to an increasingly interconnected world. Successful completion of this programme, to be taught by internationally recognised faculty, will enable students to navigate future professional, policy or academic challenges with greater knowledge, confidence and skill.
