Humanities Studies

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Humanities and social sciences is the perfect area of study for students who are looking to learn a huge variety of skills which might prepare them for unparalleled freedom when it comes to choosing which industry they’d like to work in.

Hong Kong is one of the two Special Administrative Regions of the People's Republic of China, the other being Macau.
