A Brief Introduction to the School
Founded in 1924, the School of Foreign Language and Literature is originally known as the English Department of Central China Normal University. Now, it houses seven teaching departments (English, Russian, Japanese, French, Korea, Translation, and College English) and eight research institutes (namely Institute of Foreign Linguistics and Applied Linguistics, Center for English Literature Studies, Center for Teacher Education Research, Institute of Japanese Language and Culture, Institute of Korean Language and Culture, Center for Translation Studies, Center for College English Pedagogy). Altogether, the School is home to over 2,000 students and more than 200 faculty members, including 25 professors, 59 associate professors and 10 PhD supervisors. In recent years, about 30% of the undergraduates take entrance exams for post-graduate programs upon their graduation each year with the total employment rate of graduates exceeding 96%.
Thriving disciplines is a prominent feature of the School. There are six majors for undergraduates: English, Russian, Japanese, French, Korea, and Translation; two doctoral programs: English Language and Literature and Comparative Study of Chinese and Foreign Languages. In addition, the School obtains the authority in granting master degrees in Foreign Language and Literature as the first level of discipline. Five second-level discipline postgraduate programs—English Language and Literature, Russian Language and Literature, Japanese Language and Literature, French Language and Literature, African-Asian Language and Literature (Korean Language and Literature), and Foreign Linguistics and Applied Linguistics—have already enrolled postgraduate students. The English Major is the only brand major Hubei province has approved among foreign language majors for undergraduates. Moreover, the major is among the first group of special disciplines approved by the Ministry of Education and the only key English discipline in Hubei Province. The disciplines of the School rank among the tops in the Discipline Ranking Tally announced by the Ministry of Education, with English Language and Culture ranking seventh among the postgraduate programs. The school also sponsors and publishes many journals, such as English Journal for Middle School Students (Middle School Edition/ High School Edition) and Middle School Russian (Monthly). Together with the School of Chinese Language and Literature, the School co-sponsored Foreign Literature Studies, the only academic journal covered in AHCI in mainland China.
Furthermore, the School is well-equipped with modern technology. The digital classroom, besides its multimedia function, can access visual-audio data and online resources from the repository in the Central Control Room. With satellite receiver, the School has access to TV programs from seven channels in five languages. Students could demand TV programs in many languages. It is fair to say that the teaching here is moving to a modernized and digitized manner with increasing dependence on the Internet. The Simultaneous Interpretation Room, Multifunctional Lecture Hall and Courseware Studio are the fine embodiment of the advanced teaching hardware.
The School has always attached great importance to the academic exchanges both home and abroad. Most of the faculty members have visited or studied in foreign countries like the US, the UK, Japan, Australia, Germany, France, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, and South Korea. Excellent performance at the National English Debate Contest for College Students, the National English Teaching Contest, the National Japanese Speech Contest, and National Korean Speech Contest manifest the School’s determination to go global. Each year, the school selects distinguished students to join exchange programs in US, Australia, Japan, Russia, and South Korea. Up to 40% of undergraduates and 100% of postgraduates and Ph.D. candidates in Japanese Department participate in such programs.
The School identifies “Harmony, Quality, Specialty, Innovation” as its motto. It takes the idea of “putting people first and emphasizing capacity” as its development guideline, discipline development as the focus, teaching as the center, staff development as the core and cultivating all-rounded talents of the new century as the basic task. Sticking to the principle of “paying equal attention to knowledge-oriented education and competence-oriented education, knowledge building and capacity building, pedagogical reform, and academic studies and improving teaching through research and studies”, the School will endeavor to build itself into a first-class talent cultivation base and research base of foreign language talents, with prominence in Hubei Province and fine reputation across the nation.
