Programme Aims and Features

The Faculty of Education in collaboration with the Faculty of Science offers an inter-disciplinary five-year honours degree focusing on the study and teaching of the science subjects Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Combined Science and Integrated Science in the new senior secondary school curriculum.

The double-degree curriculum integrates academic and professional studies in science education. Students complete a Science major programme in the Faculty of Science, and Education Professional Core courses in the Faculty of Education. Professional aspects of the double degree are phased in gradually over the five years, including pedagogical, psychological and sociological courses, and teaching practice in Hong Kong secondary schools. The curriculum focuses on the teaching of the science subjects as it takes place in mainstream Hong Kong schools.
