Introduction of Department

The study of Eastern philosophy opens the students’ the mind to fundamentally logical methods for which we are prepared to understand Asian values. Based on these, the major has the purpose of leading the students to desirable mentality and attitudes that ‘people of today’ should have. We have setup and managed the educational credit course since 2002 and also implemented a double major program in 2007 in conjunction with philosophical essay writing.
