The Centre for Chinese Studies @SUSS (CCS@SUSS) aims to raise the awareness and understanding of the Chinese language, culture and contemporary Chinese society through its programmes, courses, research, publications and events/activities. Within Singapore University of Social Sciences itself, CCS@SUSS will serve as a one-stop resource centre that monitors recent trends and developments in the wider Chinese-speaking world. This will allow the University to make necessary adjustments to its curriculum and academic activities, and keep it at the forefront of the field.

The Centre manages two Chinese graduate programmes offered by the Singapore University of Social Sciences​ in collaboration with overseas universities. They are MA in Chinese Language and Literature awarded by Beijing Normal University and PhD in Chinese Language and Literature awarded by Nanjing University.

In terms of research, CCS@SUSS​ places its focus on Cultural China (文化中华), which refers to the widespread use of cultural expressions of Chinese origin, both in China and the rest of the world. Areas of research range from popular Chinese culture, Chinese media, Chinese business culture, to translation and bilingualism.  

Additionally, the Centre also explores the theme of Cultural China through various events and activities, including seminars, public lectures and film festivals. The SUSS Cultural China Public Lecture (co-organised with Lianhe Zaobao and Business China) and The Singapore Chinese Film Festival (co-organised with Singapore Film Society) are both annual features at the Centre.

The broad concept of Cultural China also guides publication of SUSS Humanities Series and Chinese Enterprises and Communities Monograph Series, launched in November 2012 and October 2014 respectively.
