At HKUST, we offer the largest interdisciplinary university-level program in humanities and social science in Mainland China and Greater China and the only one to have an explicit, program-wide, comparative focus as exemplified by our innovative Global China Studies degrees.
Like every university of excellence, we are dedicated to research and teaching. What sets us apart from our peers is our explicit focus on global, especially North American and Chinese, best practices in teaching, graduate training and placement, and our own research.
The MPhil is a research degree that can be pursued either as an end in itself or as a preparation for the Ph.D. degree at either HKUST or elsewhere. While we welcome students from a variety of disciplines to apply, as befits a research degree, we do expect applicants to have a strong background in a social science discipline, and, in addition, the ability to demonstrate promising research potential through substantial research proposal.
