"Benefiting from its long, rich tradition of teaching and learning—not to mention its strong reputation as a top Asian university—and its lively, congenial international social networking environment, I came to the School of Humanities and Social Science of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) for a master's degree, in a program that can be completed over two semesters in one year. In the Division of Social Science, I enjoy the spirit of innovativeness, diligence, and comprehensiveness, which is helping to build the top social science department in the world. It is a perfect place for aspiring and intelligent students to further their studies under the supervision of world-famous professors."
