organization profile

The establishment of the College of Hakka Studies was approved by MOE on March 5, 2004. In addition to International Center for Hakka Studies and Center for Science, Technology and Society, the College also consists of Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, Graduate Institute Master Program for Humanities and Social Sciences & Population and Culture, In-service Master Program of Hakka Society and Culture, as well as Department of Communication and Technology (DCT). The DCT’s Master and PhD programs were then created to systematically garner Hakka knowledge on the basis of humanities & cultures as well as communication & technology. On the other hand, the International Center for Hakka Studies integrates academics with the resources of Hakka communities and works hand in glove with the real world of the Hakka population.

The undergraduate curricula of the College of Hakka Studies focus on connecting professional courses of the Hakka culture and society with basic knowledge of humanities and social sciences. Moreover, they attach importance to the practical training concerning cultural industries and communication technology. The thematic courses emphasize the importance of cultivating students’ interdisciplinary and basic training on humanities and social sciences. In addition, students’ academic and practical abilities are also trained and enhanced by learning special topics from the Hakka population. The Department of Humanities and Social Sciences and DCT possess highly competitive advantages in their respective relevant fields. In terms of graduate institutes, the College of Hakka Studies offers In-service Master Program of Hakka Society and Culture, Master Program of Population and Culture, Master Program of Communication and Technology (jointly held with Institute of Communication Studies), PhD program (jointly held with Institute of Applied Arts). Such programs are aimed to cultivate potential talents in interdisciplinary studies who are interested in the Hakka society and culture. The courses offered by these two departments are popular among NCTU students whose majors are not necessarily the Hakka Studies.
