社会与健康研究


「社会与健康研究」与一般健康学课程有什么分别?

  • 一般健康学课程较着重科学研究及教授护理知识,而「社会与健康研究」课程设计独特、全面,跨学科教授运动及康乐学、心理学、营养科学、神经科学、社会学、辅导学、哲学等多个范畴的知识;
  • 完成课程后,同学将掌握到全人健康的概念和相关知识,以及基本健康辅导技巧,并有能力将专业知识从个人健康领域,广泛实践至社会层面。

此课程适合什么人报读? 是否要读过理科相关课程才可报读?

  • 课程欢迎所有对运动及康乐学、心理学、社会学等学科,以及对健康与社会之关系有兴趣的同学报读;
  • 课程结构以基础学术理论为起点,及后同学可按个人兴趣及专长,选择合适范畴作进阶研修。即使没有修读过任何理科相关学科之同学,亦可报读此课程。

完成课程后,有什么升学机会?

  • 课程涵盖多个社会科学及健康研究范畴,所以升学出路极广。毕业生可选择在本地或海外大学完成健康教育、运动及康乐学、心理学、社会学等相关社会科学学士学位课程;
  • 毕业生可经非联招途径,选择升读教资会资助高年级(三年级)学士学位,包括:浸大(社会学) 、中大(社区健康;心理学)、港大(心理学;社会学)、城大(犯罪学及社会学;心理学)、理大(应用老年学及服务管理)、教大(心理学)、岭大(健康及社会服务管理)等;
  • 毕业生亦可申请入读浸会大学运动及康乐领袖学、心理学、社会政策等自资学士学位课程;
  • 同学可透过浸大「4年自资学位课程优先入学计划」,以「2+2」升学途径无缝衔接浸大「心理学社会科学学士(荣誉)」学位课程。

除从事健康服务相关工作外,还有什么出路?

  • 社会对兼具社会运作及健康教育两方面知识的专业人才,需求日趋殷切;
  • 毕业生事业发展机会甚广,可选择从事健康教育、社会服务、社会企业、运动及康乐管理等行业,包括社福机构行政人员、社福机构项目主任、社区中心康体活动统筹主任、公共事务机构康体活动统筹主任、教学助理、医管局行政助理,及政府二级联络主任等。
