BRIEF HISTORY



This English-taught program started recruiting both local Taiwanese and international students from 2012. Local students are mainly registered MCU students who meet the English proficiency requirement. As of the 2015-16 academic year, International Affairs and Diplomacy has its first batch of graduates.



Corresponding to the trend of campus internationalization and globalization, the International Affairs and Diplomacy is the first English–taught undergraduate program majored in the fields of international affairs and diplomacy. The program is based on the principle of balance between theory and practice and aimed to meet the demands of the global market and current trend.



In order to fulfill the requirements of both teaching/research and internationalization/globalization, the course design of the program is focused on professional knowledge and market demands. Faculty members are both from the academic and industry sectors, specializing at global governance, international political economy, international trade, and management. Theory analysis, practicum, analysis on the current issues, case study, and practice are methods for the students to learn more about the international/diplomacy and global governance/globalization. In addition, English-taught courses will enable both the local and international students to keep pace with the development of the global trend and contemporary knowledge.



To sum up, regardless of the short history, the program is fully prepared in cultivating talents and professionals of both international/diplomacy and global governance and globalization and stands on solid ground for the greater challenge in the future.
