Senior Lecturer/ Lecturer – General Education (Humanities/Social Science) – School of Humanities and Social Science, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen (Ref.1415/061/01)
The creation of the School of Humanities and Social Science (SHSS) has its aim to provide foundations in humanities and social science through its teaching for undergraduate students to gain insights into the past, while enabling them to critically examine contemporary issues, and explore answers for a sustainable future, so that our students can be better positioned to respond to challenges facing China and the world. In the beginning years, SHSS offers core courses of the University, ranging from language courses to General Education foundation and elective courses, including also IT and PE courses. The curricula focus on developing students’ analytical abilities, critical comprehension, and effective communication skills which are essential to their further studies. In 2015, SHSS will launch two Master’s Programs, MA in Translation and Interpreting Studies (MAT&I) and MA in Simultaneous Interpreting (MASI) in response to the national and global needs for quality language service and higher level training in the learning and teaching of translation and interpreting.
