The BAASS programme is definitely a blessing to me. With the genuine support from a team of motivated and inspiring teaching staff, I was able to complete my first ever dissertation research paper on topic that I have been always interested in. The three year with the Programme has not only broadened my horizons of life and studies but also provided me with practical work experience as an intern at an elderly community centre. CityU SCOPE is an excellent platform for us to mingle with multi-cultural people from different fields of studies. The variety of modules and precious experiences offered by the programme have strengthened my knowledge in Social Sciences and granted me an opportunity to learn about the society and equip myself with practical skills that benefit my future career development and facilitate my personal growth.

I am very grateful to have an opportunity to study this all-round Programme. This Programme has not only provided me with sound and broad-based social science knowledge, but also facilitated me to know the application of those insightful theories to the real world. Through studying different modules, my critical thinking has been developed and my ability to construct a more analytical understanding of our society has been enhanced. Apart from that, I am thankful that I have met some caring, kind and resourceful lecturers in this Programme. They were always passionate about teaching and provided helpful guidance and support when I encountered difficulties. With my concerted effort made during my study, I have achieved fruitful results. I am glad that I have made the right decision for choosing this Programme as my bachelor’s degree. This hard-earned academic qualification motivates me to keep on striving for the better and encourages me to pursue further studies.

I find what I have learned from the social science disciplines are meaningful and functional. Being a student in the BAASS Programme, I have benefited tremendously from the learning of many insightful and inspiring social science theories. The enriched knowledge assists me to construct our living world as well as the understanding our ‘self’. All that are important for my growth personally and academically.
