We are Department of Social Sciences


The Department of Social Sciences of the School of Arts and Social Sciences at The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) offers a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, covering the fields of psychology, economics, politics and public administration and applied social studies. We also collaborate with the Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration to offer a double degree programme named Bachelor of Applied Psychology with Honours, Bachelor of Business Management with Honours.

To cater the fast-changing social situation and market needs, we launched Bachelor of Social Sciences with Honours in Global and China Studies and Bachelor of Social Sciences with Honours in Ageing Society and Service Studies in September 2019. We also introduced two new programmes, Bachelor of Social Sciences with Honours in Economic and Public Policy Analysis and Bachelor of Social Sciences with Honours in Psychology and Mental Health, in September 2020.

Apart from academic studies, we provide different experiential learning opportunities for our students, such as research, internships, service learning programmes, study tours and overseas summer schools. We always strive to encourage all-round development to our students and nurture professionals in related disciplines.
