Overview

 

  The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences was established on August 1, 1998. One aspect of our educational and research mission is to make our university an institution that provides an international, multicultural, and many faceted environments for study in the humanities and social sciences, in order to develop our students' potential, broaden their outlook on the world, cultivate sound values, and encourage their concern for society and their fellow human beings. A second aspect of our mission is to develop the special features of each field in the humanities and social sciences and bring out their connections with the various fields of science and technology, in order to carry out cross-disciplinary research and realize a true melding of science and the humanities, so that our university's graduates will be people possessing both professional expertise and emotional maturity.
 
 
  At present our college consists of the Graduate Institute of Digital Learing and Education, the graduate and undergraduate programs of the Department of Applied Foreign Languages, the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, the Teacher Education Center . To increase the competitiveness of our graduates in the job market, our college puts special emphasis on strengthening students' language and communications skills, their understanding of professional ethics, and their ability to lead and think independently. We also seek to develop our students' emotional and creative capacities through concerts, literary readings, special speakers, debates, and fine arts activities. In the area of research, our college publishes two academic journals, Journal of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences and Studies in English Language and Literature . We also strongly encourage our faculty to publish articles and apply for research grants from the National Science Council and the Ministry of Education, especially in areas of cross-disciplinary research that bring together the humanities and science and technology.
 
 
  In response to government policies and the needs of society, our college will continue to establish new departments and graduate programs. In teaching, we seek to expand our students' development in the humanities and constantly improve the classroom effectiveness of our faculty, in order to provide a well-rounded education. In research, in addition to upgrading the research environment and resources that we provide for our faculty, we hope to enhance the special features of each department. In service, we plan to provide extension education to the community as well as opportunities for cooperation with industry. Our college currently has 36 full-time faculty members , 7 administrative staff members and 354 students.
