The Department of Social Work at Tunghai University has played an important role in promoting social work profession in Taiwan. In 1974, the first Bachelor’s Social Work program in Taiwan was established here under the Department of Sociology and five years later the program was transformed to be the Department of Social Work. Responding to the growth of social work profession in Taiwan, a Master’s Social Work program was established in 1984, also the first MSW program in Taiwan. Since 1994, a Ph.D in Social Work was established as a leadership position for research and education in the field of social work.
Over the years, we educated generations of social work leaders, practitioners and educators to serve in direct practice, non-profit organizations, government social welfare sectors and the higher education over the world. Our department today is an established institution with a national reputation for solid training, high teaching quality and strong alumni. Both our MSW graduates and BSW graduates had many choices of job opportunities awaited for them upon graduation.
