About Us

The Department of History and Geography of Hong Kong Baptist College (HKBC) was founded in 1960, four years after the College itself. In 1978, the Department of History became an independent teaching unit. In 1994, HKBC achieved university status, becoming Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU). Since then, the Department has forged extensive contacts with academic institutes in Hong Kong and abroad. In 2018, the Department of History celebrated its 40th anniversary with a full year of academic and homecoming events.
