previouspausenext

CUHK will launch three two-year full-time UGC-funded undergraduate programmes which are specially designed for associate degree/higher diploma holders in the 2012–13 academic year.

Prof. Diana T.F. Lee, director of the Nethersole School of Nursing, said the Bachelor of Science Programme in Gerontology is designed in response to an expanding ageing population and the associated manpower shortage in health and social elderly care services in Hong Kong. Graduates will possess skills in planning, delivering and coordinating elderly care services in a wide variety of health and social care settings. Prof. Amy S.C. Ha, chairperson, Department of Sports Science and Physical Education, said, ‘The Bachelor of Science Programme in Exercise Science and Health Education aims to train professionals in relevant fields to assist individuals and communities to have a better understanding of health issues, thereby preventing and changing unhealthy lifestyle and behaviours linked to chronic disease, disability and poor quality of life.’ Prof. Sunny K.S. Kwong, associate dean (education), Faculty of Social Science, remarked that the course contents of the Bachelor of Social Science Programme in Global Studies will be highly relevant to the global trend of the 21st century, including global politics, world economies, environmental issues, human rights, poverty and international law.
