The school of history and archives originated from the department of history of Guizhou Education University in 1988. In 2009, with the transformation of the school from adult education to ordinary higher education, the department of history was renamed the school of history and society. With more than 30 years of experience in running the school, the college has a team of teachers full of vitality in teaching and scientific research, and the discipline and specialty construction of the college shows a good development trend. From the history in 2009 (normal class, enrollment in 2010), archives in 2011 (enrollment in 2012), and cultural industry management in 2012 (enrollment in 2013), the school initially established an interdisciplinary education model of education and formed distinct professional advantages. In 2018, the university adjusted the secondary college, and the cultural industry management major of our college was transferred and merged into the college of tourism and culture. The college only has two majors, history and archives.
