European civilisation is among the most influential in the world. To understand Europe is to understand one of the main sources of modernity. The European Union has emerged as a major actor in world politics and economics; its growth and development are of vital global importance.  Within European Studies, Political Science provides the disciplinary core, underpinned by history and (cultural) area studies, business/economics or communication courses. Students also undergo rigorous training in French up to levels of academic and professional fluency. The aim is to give students a firm knowledge of the basic features of the European world and the communicative skills necessary for a future professional or academic career in the fields of European-Asian relations. Knowledge of Europe is deepened by the Honours Project in the final year, based on first-hand research into a particular subject related to Europe. Successful graduates also possess the skills requisite for immediate entry to postgraduate programmes both locally and in Europe.  Students who have met the required qualifications in the first two years, may opt for a combined degree pathway with either Sciences Po Lyon or with Sciences Po Bordeaux — two elite higher education institutions in France that provide rigorous training in social sciences at large, and contemporary world affairs in particular. Eventually, the students who fulfill the requirements will graduate with two degrees: the BSocSc (Hons) in European Studies at the end of the fourth year from HKBU and Sciences Po's master degree (Diplôme de Sciences Po) at the end of the fifth year.

About University

In 1956, Hong Kong Baptist College was founded as a post-secondary college committed to the provision of whole person education. In 1983, Hong Kong Baptist College became a fully funded public tertiary institution. It gained university status in 1994 and was renamed Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU).

Today, the six Faculties/Schools and the Academy of Visual Arts offer a range of undergraduate programmes, taught and research postgraduate programmes leading to the award of master and doctoral degrees, as well as associate degree and higher diploma programmes. HKBU is dedicated to nurturing future generations of civically engaged community members, providing them with a broad-based, creativity inspiring education. HKBU has gained a reputation as one of Asia’s finest institutions of higher learning and leverages its excellence in teaching and research for the betterment of society.

In November 2017, HKBU announced its 10-year Institutional Strategic Plan 2018-2028 and refreshed its vision to “being a leading liberal arts university in Asia for the world delivering academic excellence in a caring, creative and global culture.”

At the heart of the vision lies a commitment to enhancing world-class interdisciplinary research that would influence public thinking and policy making. To maintain its relevance to society and ensure continuance of its contributions to the creation and transfer of knowledge for the benefit of all, HKBU is purposefully investing resources to implement a comprehensive plan of action, and will focus on three strategic research clusters, namely: 
Creative Media and Practice, 
Health, and Drug Discovery,
Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence.
