Macau Education Fair 2013

HKSYU has been invited as one of the exhibitors in the Macau Education Fair 2013 in late September. The Fair was a leading education event in Macao and supported by the Tertiary Education Service Office of Macao SAR Government.

The three-day exhibition provided a valuable platform for visitors to gather reliable information about the study programs from over 100 tertiary institutions from around the world, such as Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, Japan, Canada, U.K., etc.

In the Fair, HKSYU presented four Postgraduate programs including the Master degree's and Postgraduate Diploma programs, delivered seminar talks, answered enquiries and offered advice for the parents and students from Macao. Our Program Director, Prof. Selina Chan, was one of the seminar speakers. She explained the curricula and the details of career prospects of the Master of Social Sciences (Transformation of Chinese Societies) in the seminar.

The Master of Social Sciences (Transformation of Chinese Societies) Programme

The Master of Social Sciences (Transformation of Chinese Societies) Programme, provided by the Department of Sociology, will be launched in September 2013. The programme is designed to explore the transformation of cultural practices and social values brought about by state and market.

Dr. Selina Chan, Director of the programme and Associate Director of the Contemporary China Research Centre of Hong Kong Shue Yan University said in an interview with the Newsletter that the programme is divided into two domains. “One domain focuses on changing social values and morality; how they are shaped by institutional transformation and how individual citizens adjust themselves within the social structure amid rapid and radical social change. The other domain considers how traditional cultural practices have been preserved, recycled or transformed in a process of commoditization and politicization.” She said.

According to Dr. Chan, a holistic teaching approach will be adopted to cover historical, political and economic aspects of transformation and to investigate their interconnections.

“A comparative perspective will also be adopted to study the similarities and differences among various Chinese societies, including Taiwan, Hong Kong and Mainland China. This also contributes to the breadth of the programme through examining effects brought about by market transition, urban-rural dynamics and demographic transformation. More, the programme builds not only on the research interests of existing staff of the Sociology Department, but will be enriched by contributions from visiting scholars from Mainland China, Taiwan and the United Kingdom.” Dr. Chan said.

Talking about the career prospects of graduates, Dr. Chan said the programme is especially suitable for cultural workers and community workers who are interested in better understanding social dynamics. Students may choose to work on their graduate projects in collaboration with NGOs or community-based voluntary organizations.

“The programme is also useful for teachers who are teaching Liberal Studies in secondary schools. Learning about recent developments in China as well as different paths of social transformations in Mainland China and other Chinese communities will enhance their teaching of the subject.” Dr. Chan said.

Admission begins in April. The duration of the programme is one year for full-time students and two years for part-time students. Those interested in finding out more are encouraged to visit the Department's website:
