About

The Social Sciences in Comparative Social Policy (International) programme from Lingnan University is geared towards students that graduate from various social sciences disciplines who try to find their own way to make a positive impact in the society.

Overview

Comparable to other social policy programmes in universities in Europe, the one-year full-time – or two-year part-time – Masters programme accentuates the applicability of what students learn within the classrooms, while provoking students to review existing policies.

Scrutinising public policies and management concepts alongside insights from Economics and Sociology, the Social Sciences in Comparative Social Policy (International) programme from Lingnan University helps students arrive at critical and well-informed conclusions on concrete policy issues and how they may be dealt with differently.

Outcome

Questions from the promotion of gender equality in the labour market through social security to the support early education programmes gives to toddlers’ cognitive development are also expected to be popular subject matters that students wish to investigate in their independent study projects, under the guidance of expert supervisors in relevant fields.

 The training students receive from the early exposure to pressing issues will adequately prepare them for ground-level work as soon as they leave school.
