We're young, and we've got the energy to accomplish great things! In 1996 National Chi Nan University established a master's degree program in its graduate school. Then, in 1999, the first undergraduate class was held, followed by the first doctoral class in 2003. We comprise 10 faculty members and over 250 students. Our focus is the global historical process since the 14th century. Our goal is the cultivation of a modern citizen with the heart of an internationalist and a humanistic disposition; a scholar, moreover, able to communicate his or her learning. Students and faculty professors maintain close relations, and communicate through Facebook. Each student has a tutor-professor to consult about problems not only with their studies, but in their daily life.
