General Education in CIE

In line with the goal of the Hong Kong Baptist University General Education Programme, the objective of the CIE General Education Curriculum is to promote Whole Person Education. The General Education courses at CIE will help students gain a more in-depth perception of the world around them through "making connections at personal, societal, and historical levels."

The CIE General Education curriculum is designed, based on the principle of "transferability", to facilitate articulation to the senior years of 4-year degree programmes.


The CIE General Education courses

  • were approved by the Senate of Hong Kong Baptist University in 2011;
  • have since been recognized as equivalent to the 38 units of the Hong Kong Baptist University General Education Courses;
  • are periodically being reviewed by academics from the Hong Kong Baptist University;
  • are periodically being reviewed by external academics from other universities in Hong Kong as well as overseas.

Innovative teaching and learning in our General Education courses is one of the main College initiatives since September 2013.
