There are four subjects in the Department of Humanities & Liberal Studies, viz. Economics, Geography, Chinese History and Liberal Studies. The aim of these subjects is to develop students' social and humanistic perspective so to help them make judgments on issues in local community, the nation and the world.
Economics is a study of the choices that individuals and societies make about how to allocate their scarce resources among competing uses. It is a social science, applying scientific methods of analysis to problems of human interaction.
Major topics covered in the syllabus of HKDSE include:
To broaden students’ horizons, useful seminars and competition activities on economics and financial related topics will be arranged for different grades.
To guide students in the "Extension of trade theory", to understand the key concepts and theories of absolute advantage, comparative advantage, and gains from trade by using the production possibilities frontier (PPF).
In the part of “Economic Growth and Development”, it is important for students
to understand that economic growth and development are two related, but

I have joined this C&I club for half a year. In this period of time, I have learnt and also experienced a lot growing crops for the first time. My partner Brain Tai from 8B and I enjoy watering our crops every morning before eight o’clock. So do our classmates. We have planted lettuces, beetroots and carrots for about 3 months now. They all have been growing very well under our care. I am looking forward to harvesting my crops next lesson!
