Our mission is to offer an international, multicultural, and many faceted environment for the study of the humanities and social sciences, to develop our students' potential, broaden their outlook on the world, and encourage their concern for society and their fellow human beings. As a College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences within a technological university, we are devoted to develop special features in our research and educational approaches which relate to various fields of science and technology. Through our cross-disciplinary approach in teaching and research, we achieve a true melding of the sciences and the humanities, to equip our university's graduates with both, professional expertise and emotional maturity.

   At present, our college consists of the Graduate Institute of Digital Learning and Education Department of Applied Foreign Languages, the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, and the Teacher Education Center.

We also seek to develop our students' emotional and creative capacities through concerts, literary readings, debates, and fine arts activities.
