Programme Aims and Features
This programme, jointly offered by the Department of Politics and Public Administration and the Department of Law, enables students to obtain two degrees in five years. Students are given an option to choose, at the end of the second semester of the second year, to finish with a Bachelor of Social Sciences (Government and Laws) after completing the fourth year of study, or to complete the five-year programme for both a Bachelor of Social Sciences (Government and Laws) and a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree.
Graduates are well equipped to pursue careers in government, politics, public corporations, community organisations, journalism and the private sector. They can also undertake postgraduate studies in Politics and Public Administration or Law. Graduates with the LLB degree can also apply for admission to the Postgraduate Certificate in Laws (PCLL) programme, designed for law graduates who intend to practise as lawyers in Hong Kong, provided they have passed the required prerequisites.
