History

Following the ROC Ministry of Education (MOE) adoption of a nativist stance toward Taiwan studies, in February 2002, Professor Chuang Wan-shou (莊萬壽), together with Professor Yao Rong-song (姚榮松) and Professor Hsu Chun-ya (許俊雅) drafted a proposal for the establishment of the predecessor of the Department, “the Graduate Institute of Taiwan Culture, Languages and Literature.” Permission of the Master’s program was granted in July of the same year, and the Graduate Institute was inaugurated in August 2003. Later on, an In-Service Master’s program began in 2006 in order to nurture specialists both in Taiwan studies and mother tongue education. In 2008, a Ph.D. program was created to further advance the field of Taiwan studies. Moreover, student admissions for the undergraduate program began in 2011. At the same time, the Ph.D. program, the Master's program, the In-service and the undergraduate programs were integrated under the Department of Taiwan Culture, Languages and Literature. It is hoped that the Department can nurture new talents in Taiwan studies from a wide range of educational level.
