School of Humanities and Social Sciences About us
School of Humanities and Social Sciences is a first-level research and teaching institution of Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech). The school is home to five research centers, Center for the Humanities, Center for Social Sciences & Institute for Advanced Studies in Social Sciences, Center for Higher Education Research (providing substantive support for the UNESCO Higher Education Innovation Center), Art Center, and Center for Language Education.
School of Humanities and Social Sciences was established in 2019. We aim to develop teaching and research in a form different from traditional departments of humanities and social sciences: a modest size of high-quality talents, first rate general education in humanities, and interdisciplinary research in various humanity fields.
Our teaching aims to empower our students with a range of critical skills needed for a leader in any endeavor. Students’ engagement with literature, history, languages and art motivates them to find new juncture of art and science, to create and innovate across academic disciplines, and to develop into a good communicator with cultural perspectives and a deep understanding in the complexities of human society.
Our research focuses on frontier studies and interdisciplinary research. We aim to establish humanities and social sciences fields that can fully take advantage of the research in science and technology in SUSTech and at the same time to provide strong support and guidance to studies in science and technology.
With the dynamic collaboration of faculty, staff, students, and supporters we are open to and embracing innovative ways to provide the best quality of education and research in humanities, social sciences, art and higher education.
