SOSC7390 Overseas Field Studies on Cities and Regions (3 units)
This course exposes students in person to an overseas locality the unfolding processes of globalization and urban transformation and their local ramifications and responses. By attaching to an overseas university and attending lectures given by and conducting fieldworks under the guidance of both local experts and HKBU teaching staff, students will have a better grasp of global-local interdependencies in a specific urban and regional setting. At the same, students will be able to develop field study skills including on-site observations, identifying and interviewing relevant government officials, representative of NGOs, and various stakeholders involved in major urban development projects, etc. By requiring students to write and orally present an essay on aspects of the field exercises, which involve both individual and team works, the course will also help enhance students' writing and presentation skills as well as abilities to undertake team projects.
