2) Vision and Mission

The Department is the first department ever founded in Taiwan devoted to an integrated study of Taiwan culture, languages and literature. Together with applied programs on language/communication and cultural/creative industries, the Department provides students with alternative courses to foster diversified and interdisciplinary research perspectives on Taiwan studies.

With sufficient programs from bachelor’s degree to master´s & Ph.D. degrees, the Department is currently one of the most distinctive institutes dedicated to both teaching and research areas. Moreover, the department promotes researches on Taiwan studies continuously through a wide range of academic activities, such as organizing lectures and conferences, conducting academic projects and international cooperations. With the release of its academic journal, Monumenta Taiwanica, and the cooperation with the International Taiwan Studies Center at College of Liberal Arts, the department is committed to a balance of localization with internationalization, theory with practice, and tradition with innovation, aiming to lead a forward-looking trend on Taiwan studies.

Provided with these research resources and programs of international and interdisciplinary perspectives, students are expected to gain both general and specific knowledge and skills, which, on the one hand, can equip them for advanced studies, and on the other hand, can be applied to promote Taiwan’s nativist education and cultural construction. It is hoped that with these endeavors, graduates of the Department can put their expertise into practice and contribute to society.
