HSS will give full play to its cross-disciplinary academic resources and world-class faculty to establish interdisciplinary programmes and research centers, and to cultivate interdisciplinary talents with international visions and cross-cultural communication skills, as well as analytical and strategic thinking skills.
Now HSS has gradually built up a team of high-caliber faculty members. We recruit professors, senior experts, and academics globally with the uniformly rigorous standards that apply to world-class universities, such as the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). We now have more than 170 full-time teachers, most of whom had learning, teaching and research experience overseas.
At present, the total number of students in HSS reaches 979. In recent years, students from HSS have made continuous progress in academic research, publishing many journal papers and conference papers in international leading journals and important conferences, and made achievements in important competitions nationwide. We now have four cohorts of translation undergraduate graduates, totaling 265 students. More than 65% of these graduates went on to pursue master's degrees at universities ranked in the top 50 of the QS World University Rankings. Their fields of study were diverse, covering not just languages but also areas like marketing, media, education, philosophy, sociology, international relations, law, art and design. In 2023, the first cohort of 59 undergraduate students will graduate with degrees in Applied Psychology. 15% were admitted to universities ranked in the QS top 10, and 22% to universities in the QS top 20. Notably, one graduate received full funding for a master's program at the University of Oxford, while three others were offered PhD program places.
HSS continues to carry out domestic and foreign exchanges and cooperation at various levels. As of September 2021, HSS has signed cooperative agreements with many well-known universities overseas to establish various cooperative frameworks such as exchange & visiting programs, joint cultivating programs, including Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, Columbia University, University of Southern California, University of Bristol, and University of Sussex, and University of Westminster. HSS will continue to actively expand overseas exchanges & visiting programs, and deepen cooperation with well-known overseas universities.
