Social work is a sunrise specialty in China. It is based on the development of our society in order to promote social services, and is committed to social justice. In recent years, China has accelerated the specialization of professional social workers. From2008 on, social workers have been required to have professional certification. At present, social work has much space for development. There are three main outlets for students majoring in social work. First, they can work in government for social management and social service. Second, they can work for various kinds of social organizations and institutions. Third, they can be employed by some enterprises and related departments. Students who received professional training can get positions in the social security sector, working in some organizations, but can also serve the public interest groups or NGO.

Internet and New Media is a new specialty created by the Ministry of Education in recent years. It focuses on practice and application. After receiving training in this specialty, students would be able to grasp the change of traditional media and new media fields, and understand the development of the Internet. This specialty requires that students know dissemination and marketing well, so that they can design and manufacture new media products. Eventually,they will be able to serve the Internet, telecommunications networks, radio and television networks, and other industries in which new media technology can be applied. After graduation, students can engage in publishing, e-commerce, R&D for new products, policy analysis and so on....
