Founded in 1932, School of Foreign Languages and Cultures (FLC) has now grown into one of the largest schools of humanity studies at Chongqing University. The mission of FLC is to cultivate high-level foreign language professionals with multi-disciplinary knowledge and international expertise. It is now one of the finest research and education centers for the study of foreign languages, literature and culture in Southwest China.

The School’s reputation for excellence keeps growing as it continues to improve its curriculum, teaching methods and educational technology to meet the challenges of China’s rapid social and economic development. Every year, large numbers of qualified young graduates find their positions in the fields of foreign affairs, foreign trade, tourism, finance, education, publishing and culture.


The School offers 3 BA programs, 6 MA programs, 1 PhD program (in collaboration with the School of Computer Science at Chongqing University), and a variety of English courses for non-English majors at Chongqing University. The School has established a Research Center of Language Cognition & Language Application. During recent years, the faculty has conducted over 60 research projects commissioned by China’s National Social Sciences Plan, the Ministry of Education’s Social Sciences Research Project and Chongqing Municipality Social Sciences Research Project. The faculty members have published hundreds of monographs, textbooks, translations and research papers, some of which have won prestigious awards.

The School is well equipped with advanced facilities, including a Language E-Learning Center (the most advanced of its type), a satellite TV receiving system, multi-media language laboratories, and other equipment and devices.

In keeping with an ever-expanding global community, the School has established close relationships with schools and universities in the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, Canada, Japan and Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, and has exchanged visiting scholars and students with them.
