General Education at HKBU

Our GE Programme provides students with a well-rounded university education, and is an integral part of the University’s commitment to help them achieve the HKBU Graduate Attributes (GAs). Our GE foregrounds the essential elements of Whole Person Education, such as integration of knowledge, acquisition of multiple perspectives, empathy and critical thinking, and aims to nurture our students to become responsible and responsive citizens.

To enable students to make intellectual connections across different disciplines, all GE courses are interdisciplinary and designed according to their themes/categories and levels. After completing Level 1 Foundational Courses and Level 2 Interdisciplinary Thematic Courses, students will proceed to Level 3 GE Capstone which allows them to apply, in a structured way, their integrated knowledge culminated from interdisciplinary studies and peer learning to real-world issues.
