Originally named as the "Higher Preparatory School for Foreign Students", BLCU was established in June 1962. In 1964, the school's name was officially changed to Beijing Language Institute and later renamed as Beijing Language and Culture University in June 1996. Then with the approval of the Ministry of Education, the name was shortened to Beijing Language University (in Chinese) in July 2002.
BLCU enjoys a conspicuous academic advantage in the fields of teaching Chinese as a foreign language and teaching Chinese culture. Its programs cover both short-term and long-term language certificate courses and degree courses (B.A., M.A. and Ph.D), each with its own distinctive characteristics. In order to meet the diversified needs of students, BLCU has made conscientious efforts to optimize its disciplines, update its specialties, create new fields of study and develop a rational and substantial curriculum. To implement these programs, a new discipline system has been set up, covering a wide range of subjects such as Literature, Economics, Law, Engineering, History, Education, etc. And BLCU is entitled to grant bachelor, master and doctor degrees.
BLCU compiles and publishes three core journals, namely YUYAN JIAOXUE YUE YANJIU, SHIJIE HANYU JIAOXUE, and ZHONGGUO WENHUA YANJIU. The university press has produced more than 2,000 different textbooks which have been highly influential both in China and abroad, having been adopted as Chinese-teaching curricula by more than one hundred colleges and language training organizations all over the world.
