BA in Religious Studies programme provides many opportunities for experiential learning. I have set foot in India and the United Arab Emirates, which have deepened my understanding of Hinduism and Islam. “To see is to believe”— this kind of learning experience inspired me to go to Germany to investigate the issues regarding Christianity and refugees in next year.

The Discipline of Religious Studies has not only succeeded in shaping us to be global citizens with an international perspective, but also encouraged us to promote interfaith exchanges through academic studies and even to contribute global peace. Firstly, our highly interdisciplinary curriculum facilitates us to use different angles to overview and analyze world religions. Secondly, in an atmosphere of promoting inter-religious exchanges, our mindsets are reshaped and also, we attempt to reduce prejudice by what we have learned. As such, we bring new perspectives for religious inclusion and dialogue.


This year, thanks to the endeavor of our teachers and students, “Theology and Religious Studies” at the Chinese University of Hong Kong was ranked at 23rd in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2019! This internationally recognition acknowledges and supports our continuing efforts in academic research.


Religious Studies is a place for students to pursue their mission, and it is also a learning center for global citizenship. To this day, Religious Studies is still my first choice.

"Whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it."


This saying comes from Mahatma Gandhi, an India's spiritual leader. It reminds me not to miss doing any good thing no matter how insignificant it looks, and it is also the greatest insight that “Religious Studies” has given to me. Although the number of students in the Department is not large, the teaching faculty and staff provide sufficient support to the students, and they are full of kindness. The 3-year Religious Studies Program is still unforgettable.
