1. About Us

Boya (Liberal Arts) College is a learning community founded by Sun Yat-sen University dedicated to liberal education in 2009. To counter the over-utilitarian approaches to higher education merely designed for competitiveness in the global economy, our college adopts approaches keener to classical liberal education emphasizing the value of broad learning and humanistic education in cultivating students’ free mind and their civic and ethical responsibilities in an interdependent and diverse world. Boya’s motto is “Integrating the ancients and the moderns, the East and the West”.

Our college offers six majors, which are literature, history, philosophy, politics, sociology and law, for undergraduate students, and has master programs in literature, history and philosophy, and Ph.D. programs in philosophy and literature.

Our practices and achievements in higher education are acknowledged by Guangdong Provincial 1st Prize for Teaching in Higher Education (2017) and National 2nd Prize for Teaching in Higher Education (2018).
