About Us




The Program in Japan Studies is the first graduate school engaged in Japan studies among all of the national universities in Taiwan. Under the curriculum structure of the College of International Affair, the program belongs to regional studies area. It is composed by four office units, including the College of International Affairs, the College of Social Sciences, the College of Foreign Languages and the Institute of International Relations. Our courses and faculty are also supported by the professors of Japan studies from these four offices.

In the past, most of the Japan studies in Taiwan put emphasis on Japanese languages and Japanese literature. Studies on Japanese social sciences were often neglected. In view of this, with the assistance of Interchange Association and The Japan Foundation, National Chengchi University established the Program in Japan Studies under the College of International Affairs in 2011 academic year.

Our program mainly studies Japanese social sciences, and it is divided into two groups: Politics and Foreign Affairs of Japan, and Economy and Society of Japan. Our courses focus on basic academic trainings like Social Sciences Research and Japanese Politics and Economy. We also recognize the importance of knowledge trainings like Japanese politics, economy, society and foreign affairs. We aim to train students with Japan studies, and we encourage those interested in Japan studies and have the basis of Japanese or English to apply for our program.
