Through challenging courses, research, and seminars, our undergraduate students investigate international political and economic issues from different perspectives and acquire solid knowledge and analytical skills to meet the needs of the rapidly changing world. Our alumni have used their knowledge and skills to obtain careers in the government, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector. Some graduates have chosen to pursue postgraduate studies in prestigious institutions in Hong Kong and abroad.
The University and the Department of Political Science offer a variety of internship and exchange opportunities for undergraduate students.

Some courses offered by the Department of Political Science provide students with the opportunity to participate in internships in non-governmental organizations in Hong Kong.
