The Graduate School of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (GSCASS, simplified Chinese: ; traditional Chinese: ; pinyin: Zh?ngguó Shèhuì K?xuéyuàn Yánji?sh?ngyuàn) is a public graduate school in Beijing as one of the first two graduate schools (with Graduate University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences) of the People's Republic of China.

History

Founded in 1978, Graduate School of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences was approved by Central Government top leaders in the form of Executive Order. Different from other graduate schools run by university or college, Graduate School of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences functions directly under the highest academic authority of Chinese social sciences research -- the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) -- one of the largest state-run research organizations serving as the most important think tank set up to provide policy-making suggestions in social, national and international domains.

Originally, the purpose of GSCASS was to construct a Prospect Research Faculty Incubator -- as its founding spirit may suggest -- instrumental in providing qualified first-class research backups to aid the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. After 30 years' development, however, the Graduate School has now established its prestigious achievement in elite education for official and unofficial needs. A high percentage of GSCASS graduates entered the Legislative, Executive and Judicial branches of Chinese government and research organizations, playing leading roles in academic research, policy-making, and social movement. The establishment of GSCASS made a huge impact on Chinese humanity and social science education at the dawn of the reform and opening Up (also known as the Economic reform in the People's Republic of China).

Academic organizations

GSCASS was born to be prestigious because of the outstanding academic resources the CASS has selected and collected from nationwide. It has so far grown up with the widest coverage in research and education spanning humanity and social science areas and has defined its leading momentum among all graduate schools in China. By now, the GSCASS was authorized to confer Doctoral and Master research degree in 11 disciplines, 167 sub-disciplines of humanity and social science. Original and independent research is a hallmark of GSCASS.

GSCASS is composed of Faculty Committee, Academic Council, Academic Degree Evaluation Committee, six Departments, 38 Schools and over 900 faculty members. Typically, a faculty member has at most one student to advise in three years. This one-to-one system between teacher and student encourages graduate students to be involved in important research programs -- usually waged by public. Students are free to embrace more significant experiences combining the theoretical and practical, as well as deeper emotional communication under such an arrangement.

In international communication, the GSCASS has established strong academic exchange programs with prestigious graduate schools around the world. Overseas programs for non-Chinese speaking students began running in 1985. The number of degree students from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan kept surging from its first opening in 2000.

Compared with other famous graduate schools run by universities, the scale of GSCASS graduates has been very small. Up to June 2008, the Academic Degree Evaluation Committee of GSCASS had conferred 2,574 doctoral degrees, 4,198 master's degrees and 339 professional master's degrees. In recent years, The GSCASS enrolls about 260 Doctoral candidates and 182 Master candidates annually. Students from the mainland of China qualified for application are required to obtain outstanding scores in National Master Entrance Examination or Doctoral Entrance Examination the school holds annually. So far, all GSCASS Master's degree candidates are fully financial aided. Ph.D. candidates, due to the latest policy, however, were covered by fund support in a fixed percentage to encourage top students to compete extra financial aid by outstanding performance in academic research.

Campus life

The campus was in Wangjing area, northeast of the Beijing city, adjacent to Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing Youth Politics College and China Medical University. Small in scale, it was well integrated and fully equipped, exuding a kind of 1980s' spirit and confidence which is rare today.

By the end of 2009, the new advanced campus site in the Beijing Liangxiang University Park of Higher Education[2] was to come into service. The former campus site functions as an auxiliary facility till then.
