Established in 1952 with the name of Northwest Russian College, Xi’an International Studies University (XISU) is the only university in northwest China conducting a complete range of foreign language programs. It was renamed as Xi’an Foreign Languages University in 1958. In February 2006, upon the approval of the Ministry of Education, the University changed its name to Xi’an International Studies University.
At present, XISU has a total of 24,000 students, including master degree candidates, undergraduates, junior college students and international students as well as short-term trainee students. Altogether, the university now has 27 faculties and departments, 39 undergraduate programs plus 7 minor programs covering literature, economics, management, law, education and natural science. It also independently trains candidates of MTI and MTCSOL and PhD candidates in conjunction with three overseas universities.
With 24 academic and research institutions for foreign languages, human geography and international exchanges, we have formed a complete interdisciplinary research system, undertaken a series of national, provincial and foreign-sponsored research programs, and published dictionaries, treatises, translations, theses and textbooks. The academic journals of XISU, namely Foreign Language Education, Journal of Xi’an International Studies University and Human Geography, enjoy a remarkable reputation both at home and abroad. Among these, Foreign Language Education and Human Geography are listed as 2008 to 2009 CSSCI source journals.
