China SCADC Subject Categories


Schema Scope

The China SCADC categories are based on the degree-granting and academic training directory as announced and published by the State Council Academic Degree Committee (SCADC) and Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China in April 2018.

The classification of China SCADC subject categories has two levels of category hierarchy: one higher level and one more granular detailed level. There are 13 broad-level categories represented by two-digit codes and 96 more granular categories numbered according to the broader category in which they fall. For example, Biology (0710) will roll up into Natural Science (07).
