Earliest start date
The Department is divided into two divisions: the divisions of laws and the divisions of political science. The effect is to blend the standard of laws with the realism of political science, as well as to emphasize the importance of the education of laws and political science. The study of political divisions is mainly on the courses relevant to the Six Codes, and the division of laws is mainly about laws. However, both groups shall at the same time emphasize the field of public laws, including the Administration, the Constitution, the Administrative Laws, the Official Election and Recall Law, and Politics. The courses designed by the department complete, innovative, and forward-looking to satisfy the demands of students in the knowledge-seeking, national examination, and employment.
The Department is the sole department in the country that combines the study of laws and politics. It is also the cradle for the public civil servants in acquiring legal and political education. After eight years of establishment, the Department had bred out over 400 alumni, with many of them serving prominently in the legal service and political field, a great contribution to the endeavor of the government in promoting legal and political education. Nevertheless, in order to enhance the professional knowledge of students on laws and political science, the Department will be offering advanced classes such as "Master Program in Law" in the future to train the students to study law independently and to develop research ability. This scheme shall provide the alumni to have greater space for development and benefit more young students of Southern Taiwan who have aspirations toward the field of law and political science.
