The School of Economics and Political Science treasures long history when the college was founded in the 1970s. It was originally the Department of Politics and History. In 1995, the School was founded during an era of dramatic globalization and the astonishingly rapid development of China. During the past decade, extensive reforms in public policy and management have been adopted around the world; governments have been eagerly improving their nations with a competitive spirit, and the Chinese government has endeavored to better its people's livelihood and construct a harmonious society. In order to meet the needs of the day, the college has chosen the promotion of social equity and justice as our mission and the creation of a meritocracy as the core values of the School of Economics and Political Science in 2005. The school integrates knowledge and academic strength from various disciplines among the social sciences, with a focus on empirical research and the implications of public policy, and pursues collaboration with the public sector, including governmental as well as academic exchange with various institutions. Thus, in the past thirty years, the school has responded actively to many social and public issues in China as well as to issues around the world, and gained strength through this process.
Over three decades, The School of Economics and Political Science has evolved into an important educational and R&D facility. Currently, it has gathered a group of excellent teaching and R&D talents who comprise a structured academic group with solid scientific research capability. The school has established a relatively complete discipline cluster covering major fields in Economics and Politics, forming a rather comprehensive hierarchy of courses. Currently, there are 26 full-time teachers at the school, including 3 professors, 12 associate professors, and 11 lecturers and assistants. Among the teachers, over 50% owned above masters degree.
