The Bachelor of Arts and Sciences in Global Health and Development [BASc(GHD)] is a four-year undergraduate programme, with a particular focus on the interdisciplinary study in the context of global health and development. This programme is intended to nurture future leaders with a diverse set of knowledge, skills and competencies necessary for tackling some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Our broad curriculum is delivered in partnership with Faculties across HKU, including Architecture, Business and Economics, Law, Science, and Social Sciences. This allows students to develop a core body of knowledge from a multidisciplinary and international perspective. Aside from building knowledge and academic credibility, the programme also encourages the development of practical skills applicable in today’s competitive job market. This is why as part of the programme, students are required to gain practical work experience by undertaking a six-month field placement supported by experts and mentors in a global health and development organisation.
