A Message from the Head of the School of International Studies

Thank you for visiting our website. We are excited about the programmes we offer here at the School of International Studies (IS).  With three BA degrees, three MA degrees, and a PhD degree, we believe we offer here some of the best training that can be found anywhere in China in international relations and world history, comparable to the best programmes in the world. 

A marriage of the University of Nottingham United Kingdom’s School of History and School of Politics and International Relations, IS brings political scientists, IR specialists and historians, together with specialists in anthropology, security studies, development, area studies and other fields to comprise this discipline of international studies and the School that bears its name.  We have a decidedly British approach to international relations (largely historical and qualitative with a constructivist and English School lean), but we also have experts in quantitative analysis, critical theory, and other cutting edge methods and approaches on our team. 

It’s an exciting time to be in China, and the learning experience we offer students is shaped very much by the optimism and dynamism that is contemporary China.  The rise of China forms the backdrop for our programmes, and we hope to continue to rise right alongside China.  We’d be pleased if you’d join us in whatever capacity you are able.  If there is anything we can do to answer your questions or help you in any way, do not hesitate to ask.
