  The school of Political Science and Public Administration of Shanxi University has a long history, whose predecessor can be traced back to the beginning of Political Science in Shanxi University which is included in the field of law built in 1919. It becomes an independent department in 1931. The school of the Political Science and Public Administration plays an extremely important role in the history of Political Science in China. Many well-known political scientists taught in the school, such as Mr. Deng Chuming who is a very famous political scientist as well as the founder of the Marxist Political Science in China. In the year of 1986, the Department of Political Science was renewed and set up again by Shanxi University, and it changed its name into the Faculty of Political Science and Public Administration in March, 2003. It is the only school in Shanxi province which includes three primary disciplines: Political Science, Public Management and Marxist Theory. There are two campuses belonged to this school: one is the main campus in Shanxi University, and the other is the branch campus in Shanxi provincial party school.

  The school has 78 faculty members at present who undertake the tasks of teaching and research which are related to academic courses of the school itself and the courses of Public Political Theory of the whole university. Now it contains 4 doctorial tutors, 8 professors, 23 associate professors. There are 24 teachers who were awarded doctorates, and 10 teachers who are now doing their PhD degree programs. 2 provincial famous teachers, 3 university famous teachers as well as 1 Baosteel national excellent teacher are also included in this school. The school has more than 600 full-time undergraduate students, 370 graduate students and 290 MPA students. It also has modern case-teaching laboratories, network and experimental center, etc. The Library of the school has no less than 43 thousand books and more than 150 kinds of Chinese and foreign journals.

  For the last 5 years, the members of this school have undertaken more than 68 national and provincial research projects in the respect of scientific research; published more than 47 works including Monographs, Translations and Teaching Materials; and released 456 academic papers on various kinds of domestic and foreign academic magazines. They also won 13 different awards as to teaching and scientific research in national levels and provincial levels, among which “ The reform and practice of Administration Courses in local comprehensive universities ”won the level 2 national award of Teaching Achievement. Actually, the Faculty has already formed the studying direction which has its own feature and certain advantages, and produced numerous influential accomplishments.

  The school has developed sorts of academic exchanges. The communication between the school and different teaching and research institutions (local or overseas) has been standardized and institutionalized. We have established good cooperation and keep friendly contact with various universities and research institutions in America, Japan, Korea, Switzerland, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and so on. Lots of teachers were sent by the school to go Hong Kong, Taiwan or abroad to attend advanced studies or engage in joint researches.

  Relying on Shanxi University’s advantage of multi-disciplinary development, we will keep pace with the time and innovate with persistence, and exert ourselves to build the school of Political Science and Public Administration as the training base of high-quality talented personnel and the think tank of political civilization construction in Shanxi, in order to offer strong intellectual support for the political and social development of Shanxi Province.
