The Communication University of China (CUC) is one of China’s key universities of “Project 211”, directly under the guidance of the State Ministry of Education. The predecessor of the school was a training center for technicians of the Central Broadcasting Bureau that was founded in 1954. In April of 1959, the school was upgraded to the Beijing Broadcasting Institute approved by the State Council. In August of 2004, the BBI was renamed into the Communication University of China. Located in the east part of Beijing and near the OldCanal, the CUC occupies 473,000 square meters with a total construction area of 383,000 square meters. 

The CUC sticks to its own line of thinking in subject establishment to arrange each teaching course into a scientific structure, focusing on individual features and wide connections with other courses. As a result, an inter-relating and inter-influencing discipline system is formed which covers journalism and communication, radio, film & television arts, information science and technology, literature, engineering, management, law, economics and science.
