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. 


新跃中华学术中心成立于2012年1月,中心的成立,旨在於通过教学、研究、出版、文化学术活动以及相关课程来提升社会大众对中华语言、文化及社会的认识和了解。新跃中华学术中心同时也密切关注华人世界的重要发展及趋势,并以此向大学方面提出相关课程在教学方向及学术活动之建言,使新跃社科大学在相关领域中具前沿之视野。

在教学方面,中心负责管理两个新跃社科大学​与海外大学联办的中文研究生课程,即与北京师范大学联办的中国语言文学硕士学位,及与南京大学联办的中国语言文学博士学位。

在研究方面,中心在成立之初,即定下“文化中华”的大方向。在此我们不以政治实体或地理位置来定义“中华”二字,而以源起于中华大地,但跨越至五洋七洲的今日华夏文明作为“文化中华”的依归。有鉴于“文化中华”的内容广泛,因此将重心放在华语流行文化、华文媒体、华商企业文化,及翻译与双语等子题上。

在教学与学术研究之外,中心也以座谈会、公开讲座及电影展等方式来探索“文化中华”各方面的课题。其中包括2012年10月与新加坡《联合早报》及通商中国联办的“新跃当代中国讲座”这一面向公众的年度活动。2013年4月中心与新加坡电影协会签署谅解​备忘录,通过举办年度“新加坡华语电影节”共同推广华语电影。

同样在“文化中华”的大概念下,中心推出了两套丛书,分别为2012年11月​推出之新跃人文丛书与2014年10月推出的华商华社研究系列。​​​​
