Progress of Development

 

        Established in 1997, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences is considered the most dynamic college in Chung Hua University; its primary goal is to demonstrate the inherent value of human intellectual pursuits, and to foster the well-rounded, intellectual, and moral development of its students. To meet the needs of ongoing national and social development, our college strives for the education and research of humanities and social sciences in order to educate and nurture people of talent in those fields. Currently, our college has four academic units, composed of the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures, the Department of Public Administration, the Department of Applied Japanese and the Language Center.  The College of Humanities and Social Science is comprised of 87 instructors serving 52 graduate students, and 915 undergraduate students .

       In response to the trend of globalization and internationalization, the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures, established in 1995, nurtures future foreign language instructors, and also vigorously fosters students to develop fluent communication skills in foreign languages. The aims are to help students adequately understand and analyze the latest international news, implement what they have learned into different fields, and enhance the competitiveness of national development.

        In addition to English, Japanese has become one of the most important foreign languages in Asia. In order to address to the large demand of practical skills in Japanese, the Department of Applied Japanese is established in 2009.     

        The Department of Public Administration was established in 1996 and is currently the only academic institution focusing on public administration and policy in the area of Taoyuen, Hsinchu, and Miaoli. The objectives of the Department are meant to cultivate public administration professionals with modern management knowledge to promote the quality of decision-making and efficiency of government units and enterprises.

The Language Center was established to improve the quality of English classes provided to the whole university. Through proficiency tests, courses are designed to meet the needs of all students at all levels. In order to prepare students to be competitive in the global marketplace, great care is taken to provide state of the art facilities and riendly, vibrant learning environments staffed by dedicated instructors.

 

 Introduction to the Departments:

Department of Foreign Languages and Literature

        Classes in the Foreign Languages and Literatures program are kept small to provide the highest quality of education. With constant interaction between teachers and students, wondrous results emerge as western and eastern cultures are brought together. In addition to basic training in listening, reading, speaking and writing capabilities, the curriculum also includes literature, culture studies, linguistics, and a second foreign language. This helps students expand their vision and depth of knowledge. The department emphasizes communication and the ability to express oneself, therefore, we hire foreign instructors to train students oral communication, giving students more opportunities to practice and interact with the language. Having updated language labs, abundant multimedia learning materials, and teachers devoted to teaching will continue to be the hallmark of the Department of Foreign Languages as we progress into the future.

        The Language Center was established to improve the quality of English as General Education provided to the whole university. Through proficiency tests, courses are designed to meet the needs of all students at all levels. In order to prepare students to be competitive in the global marketplace, great care is taken to provide state of the art facilities and friendly, vibrant learning environments staffed by dedicated instructors.

Department of Public Administration

        The Department of Public Administration is the only institute specialized in public management in the area of Hsinchu City/County and Miaoli County.  Our faculties work closely with local government officials in order to provide students practical know-how and better employment opportunities.  Over the years, the Department has attained a reputation of training high-quality students in the field of public administration and public policy.  The Department now offers undergraduate degree as well as Master degree in Public Administration.

The Department of Applied Japanese

        The Department of Applied Japanese was the first Japanese department in the Hsinchu area and founded in August, 2009. Every year approximately fifty students will enroll in the program.

Students obtain basic communication skills in Japanese during the first two years of study, and they acquire more professional or academic skills concerning Japan or Japanese language in the later years of study. Prerequisite courses are mainly composed of four language skills such as listening, speaking, reading and writing. The Japanese department at CHU provides students with courses in which they obtain not only linguistic knowledge of Japanese but also practical communication skills in Japanese, according to their needs. In order to nurture those students who want to use Japanese language professionally in such industries as tourism, hospitality, trading, manufacturing, or education, each student will choose one of the following areas of emphasis at the beginning of their 3rd year of study by considering their individual interests and future needs: (a) Business & Professional Japanese or (b) Japanese Linguistics & Literature.
