New MA in International Affairs programme provides postgraduates with an understanding of key subjects including international and comparative politics

Hong Kong is undeniably one of the world’s most dynamic cities in terms of trade, finance and general economic activity.  It has inevitably created demand for individuals with the international vision, regional expertise and in-depth knowledge to navigate their way – and lead others – through these changes.    MA in International Affairs aims to provide postgraduates with an understanding of key subjects including international and comparative politics, developmental studies, international security, environmental politics, and Greater China plus issues like nationalism and political culture.

Becoming global citizens and problem solvers

The new “Master of Social Sciences in Comparative Social Policy (International)” programme incorporates a focus on the study of development issues, welfare policy initiatives and good governance.  Lingnan has launched the programme to meet the increasing demand to address the shortage of individuals with relevant comparative knowledge in the public sector.  The programme is the only taught Master programme in Hong Kong which makes a comparative approach the focal point of studying social policy, development and governance.
