The School of Life Science grew out of the former Departments of Agronomy and Animal Husbandry at the College of Agriculture and Forestry, which was set up in 1985. After it was merged with Yulin Teachers’ College in 1992, the College of Agriculture and Forestry was renamed Yulin College, and its two departments developed into the Departments of Botanical Science and Animal Science. The former began to offer a new program named Biology in 1999, which became an independent department in 2001. In 2003, Yulin College was upgraded to a university that can offer both BA/BSc degree programs and non degree programs. Accordingly, the three departments were integrated into one school, i.e., The School of Life Sciences.
The School has a staff of 62, among whom 45 are faculty. Of these, 6 are professors, and 16 are associate professors.
The School has five teaching and research sections. These are: Basic Courses, Biology, Botanical Science, Gardening and Animal Science. In addition, it has one lab center and one experimental farm.
Five research centers are affiliated with the School. They are: Plants-in-Desert-Area Research Institute, Sheep-raising Research Institute, Life Science Research Center, Shaanxi Province’s Engineering and Technology Research Center for Cashmere Goats in Northern Shaanxi, and Sino-Japan Research Center for Loess Plateau Ecological Culture Restoration.
The School offers four BSc degree programs (Biological Science,Plant Science and Technology, Animal Science, Landscape Architecture) and four non-degree national diploma programs (Biology Education, Plant Quarantine, Garden Technology, and Animal Epidemic Prevention and Quarantine).
