At Lingnan University, you will find a friendly and intellectually stimulating teaching and learning environment. All your courses encourage class discussions, group work and independent learning.
The study of Social Policy draws on all Social Sciences, including Sociology, Political Science, and Economics. It provides students from different backgrounds a holistic understanding of the vital social questions of our time.
The IMCSP programme is designed to focus on your personal development and helps you to find your role in creating a better society.
All classes in the Department of Sociology and Social Policy take place in the form of informal lectures and group tutorials. Class sizes do typically not exceed 30 students.
The IMCSP programme will ask you to learn in experiential settings, such as international conferences, field visits, or personal supervision.
We will use a range of continuous assessments to evaluate your achievement of learning outcomes. These may include written essays, research reports, reflective diaries, field notes, and in-class presentations.
