The Department of Spanish, established in 1962, is the oldest of its kind in Taiwan. In 1992, it became a department of the College of Foreign Languages and Literatures. Its main objective is to teach Spanish and the cultures of Spanish-speaking countries, so that graduates can communicate fluently in Spanish, teach Spanish, and play important roles in the relations between Taiwan, and Spanish-speaking countries.
To achieve its objectives, the department has designed a curriculum with subjects ranging from philology to culture, and has organized various activities to help students practice Spanish and experience the culture of Spanish-speaking countries.
The most outstanding features of this department are its international orientation, its exchange programs with foreign universities, its dynamism in the organization of national and international events, and its forward-looking vision.
