Main Areas of Education
The Arts

The Arts, particularly the traditional Chinese arts, and physical education were therefore among the earliest departments established on the university campus. Looking back to more than 50 years of training and experience, Chinese Culture University is proud to announce that these disciplines have developed a outstanding reputation of virtuosity and expertise in the academic and artistic worlds, and continue playing a significant role in the future education of the young generations. These pioneering departments like Chinese Opera, Chinese Music, and Choreography and Dance are staffed with famous masters being specialists in their fields.

Physical Education

The Departments of Physical Education and Martial Arts integrate the best of Chinese and Western ideals: With an equal emphasis on theoretical and practical training, both modern and classical theories of physiology and physics are applied to assess student-athletes' potential, and to achieve the best scores. The university claims to have trained the largest number of national athletes, competitors and coaches, and participants in the broadest range of sports disciplines at international competitions. Undergraduate courses also aim at fostering sportsmanship and team spirit, adding to character strength and noble-mindedness.

Cross-Cultural Communication

The dissemination of foreign languages is one of the main reasons of success why China has managed to unite and integrate people of many different cultural backgrounds. At Chinese Culture University, we honor this outstanding feature of traditional Chinese culture by inviting our students to learn a variety of foreign languages. From its early beginnings on, the university engaged in establishing foreign language departments, so that today, students can choose to study English, German, French, Russian, Japanese, or Korean, and may benefit from contacts with many great cultures of this world.

Modern Media and Journalism

In a world increasingly marked by digital innovation and ever expanding channels of mass communication, journalism is constantly challenged to meet the growing demand for critical news and reports. While national borders are seemingly vanishing through the widespread use of the worldwide web and mobile services, the need for cultural identity persists, and its regional topics of interest are shared on all levels of both local and global media. At Chinese Culture University, these trends are closely watched and discussed, and transformed into most up-to-date programs to train students in modern journalism and communication.

Architecture and Environmental Design

Another key element of traditional Chinese culture is striving to live in harmony with the natural environment: taking care of the relations between humans and their living spheres is at the core of Chinese philosophy, and this age-old wisdom is preserved in typical landscape architecture, seasonal folklore rituals and ceremonies, health care and much more. Since 1993, the College of Environmental Design represents the former Department of Architecture and Urban Design and the Department of Urban Administration and Landscape.

Chinese Mainland Institute

In 1973 the Chinese Culture University established the Chinese Mainland Institute (formerly called Institute of Mainland China Studies), the first of its kind in Taiwan at that time. The institute mirrors the importance of cultural exchange and ongoing discourse between both sides of the Taiwan Straits. Related research focuses on a broad range of topics concerned with economic growth, demographic change, international relations, political structures, environmental resources, natural disaster prevention, and other. Scholarly exchange has started as early as of 1989, subsequently followed by numerous academic conferences.
