One of the biggest differences between HKUST and CUA in terms of courses are the varieties. As for me I don’t exactly have an equivalent major in CUA as in HKUST (which is Global China Studies), I have a greater flexibility in choosing courses. One of the most interesting course that I have chosen is Terrorism and Counterterrorism, which you can never easily find an institution that actually put emphasis on teaching students what terrorism is. The best part of this course is the instructor, who is an ex-FBI field agent specializing in counterterrorism office.
