Four years after the founding of Hong Kong Baptist College in 1956, the Department of History and Geography was established. In 1978, the Department of History became an independent teaching unit; and in 1988, it began its accredited degree program. In 1994, the College was renamed Hong Kong Baptist University. Since then, the Department's contact with other academic institutes in Hong Kong and abroad has become even much more vigorous.

 
 
 
 

Advancing the Limits of Historical Knowledge

All the faculty members of the Department have demonstrated great interest in historical research and have published widely in academic journals, books and edited volumes. Publications cover a variety of topics, periods, and regions, and are delivered in different languages.
