The Department brings me unexpected changes. I learnt how to speak, write, think and organize after three years of study here.
BA (Hons) 1992
Deputy General Manager,
Shanghai Pudong Development Bank
I had a memorable time in the Department of Religion and Philosophy for three years. I made friends with like-minded and found teachers who could always give me guidance. I established my self-goals and foundation of my life via training in critical thinking. Forget about the job and career! Come and enjoy your campus life and learning in the Department of Religion and Philosophy!
BA (Hons) 1998
Deputy Chief Executive, The Yuen Yuen Institute
What young people possess is time and opportunity. Students should equip themselves continuously for achieving their dream. I believe success is not related to one’s educational background, while studying Arts is not a barrier of one’s future development. What really matters is one’s effort and attitude in the long run.
BA (Hons) 2005
Liberal Studies Teacher, HKMA David Li Kwok Po College
Religion and philosophy are indispensable to humans. Therefore, studying religion and philosophy is not only the knowledge of the disciplines, but also a model of thinking and a framework of understanding the world. It is still useful for working after graduation.
BA (Hons) 2011
- Post-doctoral Fellow, Duke University
- Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Whitman College
Beside rich academic resources, the Department is committed to students’ whole-person development. They organize study tours to Europe and Mainland China, as well as visit of local religious communities. Students can have the chance to experience religious ceremonies and interact with social institutions. These activities enrich my knowledge and understanding in religion and culture, on the one hand deepening local observation and on the other hand broadening global horizons.
BA (Hons) 2017
The relationship between professors and students of our department can be as close as friends. “Eating” is a special feature of the department. Our professors teach seriously, eat seriously and play seriously. They frequently invite students to eat together, discussing religions and philosophy on the table, or simply chit-chating.
