About the Institution

The School of Philosophy and Social Development at Huaqiao University was founded in September 2009. It is a relatively young school that evolved from several former institutes. Since its foundation, our school has become home to one of the most important programs in Southeast China and one of the fastest growing programs nationwide.

The School has 35 permanent academic faculty members, 30 in the department of philosophy and 5 in the department of sociology respectively. We already have an international faculty member who specializes in Analytical Philosphy. The School is also home to more than 100 undergraduate and 100 graduate students.

The School is firmly committed to excellence in teaching, offering a wide range of programs at undergraduate and graduate level. At undergraduate level, we currently offer a program leading to a B.A. degree in Sociology, and in September 2013, we start a program in philosophy. At the graduate level, we offer programs in different research areas leading to a Master degree and a PhD in philosophy.

The Department of Philosophy of the School has several divisions concentrating on the following research areas: Chinese Classical Philosophy, Ethics, Marxist Philosophy, Philosophy of Religion, Philosophy of Technology, Western Philosophy (several faculty members work in philosophy of language and logic, philosophy of mind, political philosophy, ancient Greek philosophy, medieval philosophy, early modern philosophy, and phenomenology).

It is also worth emphasizing that our School of Philosophy and Social Development at Huaqiao University is located in the beautiful coast city of Xiamen, southeast China. For more information, please check this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xiamen.
