The Chinese Literature Department originated from the Chinese subject founded in 1908 at Nanyang Public School, the predecessor of Xi’an Jiaotong University. Its famous alumni, like educationist Ling Hongxun, dramatist Ding Xiling, Lu Dingyi and Zou Taofen, have all benefited from the spectacular education of Chinese literature at this school. In 1996, Chinese Literature Department was reestablished. It began to recruit undergraduates in 1997 and then established the Master's program of theory of literature and art in 2001. Now it has a high qualified faculty made up of mentors across a very wide age range; most of them have doctor degrees from prestigious universities at home and aboard, as well as visiting scholar experiences at universities like Harvard and Oxford.

In 1999, it became one of the thirteen initial members of the Chinese Development Forum of Top National Universities, the most important conference on the development of Chinese language and literature in mainland China, then successfully organized the tenth forum in 2008. Benefitting from the abundance of historical relics and cultural heritage of Xi’an, it develops its advantages in fields like classical literature, traditional opera culture and silk road inscription, as well as in other fields like modern and contemporary Chinese literature studies and science fiction studies.
