    What makes Philosophy at Lingnan unique is the breadth of its courses. Students will

    learn philosophical thoughts of both Eastern and Western traditions. Besides, with the approachable

    and cheerful teaching faculty members, a highly supportive learning environment is offered to

    students. So, please feel free to knock on the doors in the Department. They are

    not only the doors of professors, but also the doors to wisdom.

    I benefited tremendously from the advice and support of the professors in the Department. They inspired me to apply my marketing knowledge and skills to service learning projects, summer internships, training workshops, as well as the University’s new student orientation and ambassador programmes. These platforms provided me with hands-on practical experience and valuable opportunities to practise my leadership and teamwork skills.
