History

The Department of Psychology was established in 1992. Currently, it offers three levels of degree: Bachelor's, Master of Science, and Doctorate. There are six areas in the graduate program:  cognitive, developmental, physiological, social, quantitative, and clinical. The Department includes 19 full-time faculties and 2 professors emeriti. The mission of the Department is to provide students with both broad and in-depth knowledge in psychology to prepare them for future goals in employment and academics. 

As the first four-year university established in the area, one major goal of the University is to connect to local people to meet their needs. The Department of Psychology fulfills this goal by training the students from the neighboring areas. In addition, collaborative relationships have been built between the faculty members and local hospitals and medical doctors to support each other in clinical field and interventions. As one of few psychology programs in Taiwan with six various subfields, the Department of Psychology provides students a comprehensive training. Moreover, faculty members in the Department have shown strong research and teaching credentials. The students not only learn from class instructions but also are encouraged to participate in various laboratories to explore their interests and sharpen their research skills. An overarching goal is for faculty members to be involved in multi-disciplinary courses and research projects. Both undergraduate and graduate students benefit from these approaches to be better prepared for future challenges.
