The Department was established in 1935, when the news media had little influence on society and the education of journalism had yet to prevail. Now it combines technology, social sciences, humanities and arts to fulfill the mission. Equipped with the newest facilities in Taiwan, all the classrooms in our department are multimedia classrooms. Acknowledging the changing environment, in recent years we offer curriculum nurturing students' expertise of processing news information, with the aim to help students to understand the trend in media as well as to command and practice the creativity required to design and use media.
