General Education

College General Educational Programme

The General Education Programme at CW Chu College consists of (1) a credit-bearing component (an induction course for Year 1 students and a capstone course for Year 4 students), and (2) a non-formal component that carries no credit units (required extended orientation for students in Year 1 and communal dining including High Table dinners; and voluntary social service).

The induction course (GECW1010 University and Society) will be a key component of the first-year experience introducing students to university learning. The course will be taught in English. The capstone course (GECW4010 Senior Seminar) will allow students to synthesize their academic skills beyond the limits of the major programme, engage with a real-life issue of relevance to society, analyze the factors, constraints and options, and present their findings in a cogent, reasoned and persuasive manner. Students are expected to learn and participate actively through lectures, tutorials, presentations, group work and the writing of term papers.
