The College of Literature and Journalism of Sichuan University was founded in 1998, combining the Department of Chinese Language and Literature and the Department of Journalism.
Throughout the school’s development, we have aimed to train high-level personnel, create a well-established undergraduate education, focused on cultivating graduates, supplemented by other education structures. The college administration attaches great importance to fostering students’ academic groundings and abilities, hosting a series of academic forums, inviting numbers of famous scholars both home and abroad. DR Forums given by top PhD candidates and Classics Forums given by top Master degree candidates and undergraduates are hosted every semester. Encouraging undergraduate to create literary works, the college has also sponsored two literature publications: Qidian and Qingtong.
