The College aims to cultivate the talents of scientific mind and humanity concerns. We emphasize using scientific approaches to study the interaction between society and individuals and based on which the departments design their courses. Under the core idea of theory innovation and localized praxis,” the departments are encouraged to design course with own distinct features.
In our efforts of research, we stress the latest trend in international social science research and develop relevant social theories for special situation in our society.
Furthermore, the College will promote the research on aged society as aging population in Taiwan has become an important issue and bring challenges to our society. This trend calls into question the sustainability of current economy and society, and it will have an impact on people’s support and trust on democratic governance and its established institution. Thus, it is important for the College to integrate the research capability, to develop interdisciplinary research on aged society.
