This flexibility extends to the four specific strands of the DALS programme. Besides choosing from the four strands to develop your specialism, you can also choose elective subjects from different strands for inter-disciplinary studies.

Besides, the Faculty of Humanities has enlisted collaboration with a number of internationally prestigious institutions as professional and academic partners to ensure that DALS students will benefit from inputs from renowned overseas and local scholars, researchers and practitioners.

What makes studying the DALS programme even better? The Humanities Doctoral Scholarship offered by the Faculty provides an entry scholarship and a post-entry scholarship to outstanding students in the form of tuition fee waiver. Qualified students may be appointed as teaching assistants in the departments and centres in FH.
