Public Opinion is an important driving force of social development in all societies. Although Hong Kong is far from being a democratic society, its political development has been heavily influenced by public opinion during the colonial era and also under “one country, two systems”. This course examines the formation of public opinion in Hong Kong, its relevance to public policies, the design and conduct of scientific opinion surveys and other forms of opinion expression. Practicum will be arranged for students to learn through hands-on experience in conducting surveys and analyzing public opinion research.
