Dean of the College
The college of Arts includes 276 full- and part-time faculty members, 2090 undergraduate students, 63 doctoral students, and 440 master students. Five departments and one individual graduate institute are included in College of Arts : Chinese (undergraduate, master, and doctor), Foreign Languages and Literature (undergraduate and master), History (undergraduate and master), Philosophy (undergraduate, master, and doctor), Japanese Language and Literature (undergraduate and master).
Three fields covered by College of Arts:
(I) Traditional Humanities: Humanity, history and philosophy are traditional human subjects, aiming to investigate human arts and offer human education courses in order to cultivate students’ humanity manners.
(II) Foreign Languages: Foreign and Japanese Languages and Literature departments provide students with foreign language teaching resources, aim to help students develop their language abilities, enlarge their global aspects, and gain more control over their futures in an increasingly multilingual and interdependent world.
The two mentioned fields not only offer students rich courses but also have their own characteristics. Our college internally aims to increase the interaction between faculties and different departments, externally encourages each department to enhance their service and held national or international academic conferences, as well as the interaction between other universities in order to become an ideal channel for academic scholars and the public to communicate.
