政治及公共行政

1911年辛亥革命成功,推翻滿清。在國父孫中山看來,政治就是“公共事務”,可見政治涵蓋面極廣。正因如此,人們對待政治的態度可以高度主觀,這就是香港目前的狀況。不過,政治其實可以是一門高度客觀的學科,涵蓋嚴謹的文獻評論、準確的事件描述、客觀的政治分析。我們怎樣才能夠達致相對客觀?我們如何看待政治和通識的敏感課題? 如何理解中國和香港的政治,以及如何利用大中華經濟融合的百年機遇?

政治及公共行政課程系列, 包括4個1.5小時的網上課程,和 3個單元式(每個30小時)的面授課程。歡迎對中國政治、香港政治、 大中華經濟融合有興趣的各界人士報讀。

身兼政治科學家與大學教職員三十年,香港大學專業進修學院常務副院長 (文學及科學) 政治專家盧兆興教授,對於這些政治課題及教學方法,會給我們適切的提示。

此外,還有兩個由行業從業者講授的行政人員證書課程和一個由民主之路/香港政治及行政學苑委託籌辦理的高級行政人員文憑《政治領袖》課程。
