英语学院简介                    

 
     英语学院前身为历史悠久(始建于1959年)、享誉西南的英语系。2009年,原英语系与原英语语言文化系(始建于1984年)合并,组建为新的英语学院。学院所属英语本科专业为国家一类特色专业建设点,下设“英汉双语翻译”、“英语教育”和“英语语言文学”三个专业方向(“英汉双语翻译”方向下设有“英汉双语高级翻译实验班”,培养实战型高级口笔译人才,“英语文学方向”下设有“中国文化走出去实验班”,培养学贯中西的跨文化知识精英);所属“英语语言文学学科”为重庆市重点学科。半个多世纪以来,经过几代川外英语人筚路蓝缕的艰辛创业和百折不挠的奋斗开拓,英语学院目前在人才队伍建设、教研科研实力以及本科教学水平等方面,位居西南地区龙头,在中西部地区具有强大的辐射力,在全国英语学界也具有重要影响。
     英语学院拥有一支学术造诣精湛、教学效果优异、科研成果丰硕、梯队结构合理、学历层次高的优秀师资队伍。学院目前共有专职教师80名,其中教授12名(二级教授1名)、副教授40名;享受国务院津贴专家1名、重庆市英语语言文学学科带头人1名、重庆市人文社科学术委员1名;拥有博士学位教师20名、98%的教师拥有硕士学位,大部分教师有海外留学、访学或进修的经历;常年聘有外国专家4名。
     英语学院致力于培养专业技能扎实、国际视野广阔、人文素养全面、人格心理健全、高层次国际化英语专业人才。目前,学院开设有各种专业基础课和专业方向课程50多门,拥有重庆市精品课程5门、重庆市优秀教学团队3个。英语学院教学成绩卓越,学生英语专业四、八级考试连年超过全国外语院校平均及格率。学院重视培养学生社会实践能力,目前与力帆实业(集团)股份有限公司、四川公路桥梁建设集团公司、重庆中国三峡博物馆、重庆语言桥有限公司等国内知名企业单位签署协议共建教学实习基地15个,为学生提供了广阔的社会实践空间。
     扎实的语言技能、全面的人文素养和丰富的社会实践活动造就了我院学生过硬的专业能力、健全的人格修养和热忱的公益精神。近年来,我院的“演讲与辩论队”和“高级口译队”学生在“外研社杯”全国英语辩论赛、“21世纪·联想杯”全国英语演讲赛、全国高校口译大赛、模拟联合国大会、全国高师技能大赛等专业类、高层次赛事中屡创佳绩;在亚洲足球赛、亚太城市市长峰会、东亚足球锦标赛、北京奥运会、英国青年代表团访渝、中国科协第十一届年会等大型会议会展等一系列口译志愿者服务工作中,也有优异的表现,受到主办方的高度赞誉。
     英语学院毕业生就业形势良好。除了出国深造、保送或考取研究生之外,每年还有大批毕业生进入中央对外联络部、外交部、国家安全部等国家机关以及外贸、外企、旅游、民航、海关、大专院校、科研机构、新闻出版等部门从事涉外工作。
     按照学校建设“教学研究型”大学的定位,英语学院在成立之初便把科学研究作为学院的工作重点之一。目前英语学院下设英美文学研究中心、语言学与应用语言学研究中心、翻译学研究中心、词典学研究中心、比较文学与文化研究中心、语言测试研究中心等6个研究机构,主办有国内第一家以译介国外英语语言文学最新研究成果为宗旨的丛刊——《国外英语语言文学前沿》。自成立以来,教师共承担国家级、省部级等各级各类科研/教研立项80余项;在A&HCI 和CSSCI源刊等各级各类期刊上发表论文300余篇;在人民出版社、北京大学出版社、外语教学与研究出版社等国家级出版社出版专著40余部、教材20余部;获各级科研/教研奖50余人次。
     英语学院将继续秉承原英语系和英语语言文化系朴实无华、严谨求实的优良传统,并在“海纳百川,止于至善”这一新院训的指导下,科学谋划、锐意进取,开创川外英语专业辉煌的明天。

CELL Profile
Owing its origin to the Department of English (DOE) established in 1959, the College of English Language and Literature (CELL) in SISU was founded in 2009 when DOE merged with the former Third Department of English (which was established in 1984). Currently, the College offers a four-year program in English leading to BA degrees in three sub-areas, viz., Translation & Oral Interpreting, English Literature & Linguistics, and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). Due to the program’s educational and academic excellence in English it has been accredited as an A-Class Program at the state level and a Priority Program of Chongqing Municipality. Prompted by the pioneering spirit of its predecessors and supported by more than five decades of innovative perseverance, CELL is proud to be recognized as the most dynamic and creative force in SW China and it is, de facto, one of the leaders across the entire country for providing high quality English education.
The faculty of CELL is composed of 80 full-time teachers, of which, 12 are full professors (among whom one holds endowed chair), 40 are tenured associate professors; 20 have attained their Ph.D. degrees and 98% have earned M.A. degrees specializing in Anglo-American literature, comparative literature, linguistics & applied linguistics, cultural studies, TESOL, and other related fields; and, 95% of the faculty have had international experiences. All faculty members take a genuine interest when instructing their students, while personally dedicating themselves to individual academic research. In addition to this, there are qualified and experienced teachers from English-speaking countries affiliated with CELL. They not only bring passion to the learning environment and lend an international vision into the classroom, but also contribute considerably to making the College an academic community of multicultural dimensions.
CELL’s primary teaching focus is to equip students with fundamental English competence, provide a well-rounded knowledge of Sino-Western humanities, advance a broad international perspective, develop the ability for creative and critical thinking, and emphasize personal traits of honesty, modesty, and integrity. In support of these, CELL offers a wide spectrum of curricula covering its three primary course-areas: foundation, communication, and elective. Foundation courses are designed to equip students with basic knowledge of English. Communication courses are to strengthen students’ ability to express themselves in English and to provide them with critical thinking, speaking, and writing experiences that will be important in their future lives and careers. Elective courses focus on specialized studies in Anglo-American literature, Chinese literature (in English), linguistics & applied linguistics intellectual history of the West and of China, theories of translation, TESOL, etc. These three course areas complement one another, which enables CELL to produce graduates that will meet standards of excellence. Complementing these study programs are strong emphases attached to a range of extracurricular activities, social services, and internships.
Graduates from CELL are highly sought after by prestigious graduate schools and employers in diversified fields, such as, teaching, public service, foreign trade, banking, insurance, press, media, etc. Graduates from CELL work tirelessly in these areas, fully utilizing their knowledge of English in their particular areas of calling.
In addition to teaching, academic research is another prominent aspect of CELL. In recent years, the scholarly output created by CELL’ faculty members has been rising steadily into repute both in quantity and quality. Six research centers operate under CELL: Center for Anglo-American Literature Studies, Center for Linguistics & Applied Linguistics Studies, Center for Translation Studies, Center for Lexicography Studies, Center for Comparative Literature & Comparative Culture Studies,and Center for Language Assessment Studies. CELL also publishes its annual scholarly journal: New Bearings in International EL&L, reviewing and reporting on the latest academic achievements by foreign scholars in English studies.
With the advent of the new millennium, CELL will redouble its efforts in further enhancing teaching, academic research and international collaboration to accomplish its mission epitomized in its motto of “Connecting the World, Striving for Excellence.”
CELL Motto:  Connecting the World, Striving for Excellence!
