Blank boxes can be used for elective courses, or courses leading to a minor or a 2 nd major. Faculty of Science The University of Hong Kong

Common Core Curriculum l l l The Common Core Curriculum is designed to provide Common Core Curriculum l l l The Common Core Curriculum is designed to provide key common learning experience for all HKU students and to broaden their horizons beyond their chosen disciplinary fields of study. It focuses on issues that have been, and continue to be, of deeply profound significance to mankind, the core intellectual skills that all HKU undergraduates should acquire and the core values that they should uphold. The Common Core Curriculum is divided into four Areas of Inquiry (Ao. Is): l l l (1) Scientific and Technological Literacy; (2) Humanities; (3) Global Issues; (4) China: Culture, State and Society. Students have to pass 36 credits of courses in the Common Core Curriculum, selecting not more than one course from the same Area of Inquiry within one academic year and at least one and not more than two courses from each Area of Inquiry during the whole period of study. Common Core courses should be completed normally within the first three years of the BSc study. Faculty of Science The University of Hong Kong

Capstone Requirement l l l Capstone experience is an integral part of the major Capstone Requirement l l l Capstone experience is an integral part of the major programme which focuses on integration and application of knowledge and skills gained in the early years of study. The capstone course carries a minimum of 6 credits and students must complete this for fulfillment of the graduation requirements. Capstone course is normally taken in the senior years (year 3 or 4) of study. The capstone courses in each Science major may be different but a range of courses (e. g. research project, field work, internship) is offered to suit individual student’s needs and interests. Faculty of Science The University of Hong Kong

Students taking double Majors, Major-Minor or double Minors with overlapping course requirements l l Students taking double Majors, Major-Minor or double Minors with overlapping course requirements l l l Double-counting of courses up to a maximum of 24 credits is permissible when a student with a science major opts to undertake a second science major. The double-counted courses must include SCNC 1111 (6 credits) and SCNC 1112 (6 credits). Additional credits to be double-counted must be for courses required (‘must take’) by both majors. For cases with 24 or less double-counted credits, the student must make up an equivalent number of credits by taking other courses offered by any Faculty of Science The University of Hong Kong

Students taking double Majors, Major. Minor or double Minors with overlapping course requirements (Cont’) Students taking double Majors, Major. Minor or double Minors with overlapping course requirements (Cont’) l l l If more than 24 credits (including SCNC 1111 & SCNC 1112) are listed as required courses (“must take”) in both the first and second majors undertaken by a student, the student must make up the number of credits above the 24 permissible by taking replacement course(s) in the second major. The replacement course(s) must have the same prefix and at the same or higher level as the doublecounted course(s). Double counting of credits is not permissible for major–minor or double-minors combinations. When a course is required (“must take”) both by the major and minor or by both minors, the student must take a replacement course for the minor. The replacement course must have the same prefix and at the same or higher level as the course to be replaced. For the situations above, students have to complete the form “Application for Taking a Replacement Course for the Course Faculty of Science Required in Two Different Majors/Minors. ” The University of Hong Kong

Example: A student is taking CHEM as the first major and BIOC as the Example: A student is taking CHEM as the first major and BIOC as the second major. The following courses are compulsory (must take) Chemistry Biochemistry SCNC 1111 Double Counting of the first 24 SCNC 1112 credits is allowed.
