Department of History

History is a major academic discipline in the College of Arts established in 1955. At Tunghai University, the History undergraduates have to take courses in Chinese, Taiwanese and World ¡§histories¡¨. Within the history courses, students may concentrate either in dynastic or topical histories.


The Master¡¦s Program emphasizes topical research on dynastic histories and comprehensive studies of political, economic, social, intellectual, and diplomatic histories.

The History Deparment has its own library for both undergraduate and graduate students. Its collections amount to thirty-one thousand books and forty important periodicals. Most of the books are recent publications. About half of them are modern and contemporary histories. The library also houses multi-media facilities and computers for students to have access.
