Rapidly changing economic circumstances, growing trends in liberalization and globalization, and dynamic business correlations have placed Taiwan at the threshold of becoming a major operation center in the Asia-Pacific Region. With this comes the growing demand for outstanding and skilled economic professionals and the Department sees this as a dutiful task to train such individuals.

Based on the guideline and aim of properly preparing and educating its students, the Department consistently gathers a superior faculty, extends teaching facilities, and strengthens cooperation with academic research institutions and business circles so that the graduates can lend their expertise to Taiwan in the course of its economic growth.


Department of Sociology:

Providing the country with an ample supply of highly capable and reliable human resources who can assess social problems and offer the most effective solutions is the key drive of the Department of Sociology. In acquiring a thorough understanding of social patterns, changes, and problems, students can bring their specialty into full play, both in their classes and in the actual setting, and help stimulate the progress as a whole.

The curricula, in addition to the basic training on Sociology, pay special attention to the following themes: Political Sociology, Sex & Culture, and Communal & Social Problem Solving.

The Department also provides a master’s program for those who are interested in further research. In 2001, an on-the-job M.A. program was set up to provide an even more intensive training field for its students.


Department of Social Work:

The Department of Social Work trains its students into becoming professional social workers by equipping them with the necessary skills and inculcating in them the desire to serve the society. Ultimately, as they move into their careers, they can make great contributions in striking a balance between social and economic progress in Taiwan. There is a wide range of options for our graduates, which include but are not necessarily limited to, further study in graduate institutes; teaching positions in academic institutions; administrative work in government agencies related to the field; employment in public and private social service units; and, experts in social welfare units in hospitals.


Graduate School of Criminology:

The Graduate Institute of Criminology was established in order to meet the growing need of crime prevention professionals, such as, supervisory court observers, rectifiers for juvenile delinquents in reform schools, police officers, crime lawyers, security planning managers, and experts in judiciary agencies.

The curriculum is designed, such that, the students can understand and apply the criminal theories, the structures and functions of courts, police systems, and the roles prosecutors and prisons, so they acquire a broader and more diverse perspective in dealing with real-world situations.
