Ho Chi Minh City University of Social Sciences and Humanities (HCMUSSH, Vietnamese: Đại học Khoa học xã hội và Nhân văn Thành phố Hồ Chí Minh, French: Université des sciences sociales et humanités d’Hô-Chi-Minh-Ville) – is one of the member universities of Vietnam National University, Ho Chi Minh City, which includes the HCMUSSH, the University of Natural Sciences, the University of Technology, the International University, the University of Computer Science and the University of Economics and Law. The HCMUSSH plays an important role in Vietnam's higher education, especially in the fields of social sciences and humanities.

History[edit]

Established in 1955, the HCMUSSH was originally known as the Faculty of Letters, which was part of Saigon University. October 1975 marked the beginning of a new era in the university's history when it began its first academic year after the reunification of the country, with various changes in its training objectives, curricula, and programs. Another landmark in the university's history was the merging of the Faculty of Letters and the Faculty of Sciences of Saigon University in April 1977, resulting in Ho Chi Minh City University, the largest training and research center in the South of Vietnam. March 1996 saw the separation of HCMC University into its two original component members, both of which were given independent status and became members of Vietnam National University, Ho Chi Minh City, and the university has been officially known as the USSH ever since.
