  • Since 2001Asia University Department of Foreign Languages and Literature is consistently growing in popularity with students. In both undergraduate and graduate programs, the curriculum is designed into innovative program pathway tracks for today’s students. Our students increase their global understanding and will personally experience how communication, culture, and language work together.

    Our students are motivated because courses are focused, forward-looking, and intended to develop fully every student’s English language proficiencies. A favorite course feature our students enjoy and benefit from is many small-size classes and the interaction they share with their teachers. Class and book study is only part of learning because our students will experience real-world work through student internship. This is how students take what they have learned in the classroom and then experience working in real businesses outside of the university or a teaching practicum in a local school. Our students also can excel through a range of fun activities by getting involved with language contests, student clubs, a senior drama performance, and more! 

    We are committed by providing every student's developing needs with abundant resources, learning tools such as with technology, caring support services to assist in their language studies, university success, and personal growth.

    Students can benefit their employment potential with increased self-confidence and competence as they prepare for future career success either locally or internationally in highly sought-after career fields such as translation, interpretation, hospitality, business & industry, teaching, and other emerging career areas. Students can maximize their real-world learning experience at its best through Asia University Department of Foreign Languages and Literature.

  • The Department of Foreign Languages and Literature

    When the school (formerly known as "Taichung Healthcare and Management College,") was established in 2001, the department was named "the Department of Applied Foreign Languages" with a focus on language learning and language application and recruited both four-year university students and two-year college students for its daytime programs. It also offered an evening program for high school graduates who could not afford to study in the daytime. In 2005, the school was granted a comprehensive university status and renamed "Asia University" because of its teaching and research excellence. To observe the guidelines of higher education for a comprehensive university and to enrich students’ intellectual, spiritual and cultural understanding and knowledge, the school strengthened its academic units to meet the new needs of a full-fledged university. In 2007, the college was renamed “the College of Humanities and Social Sciences,” with a new emphasis on humanities and social sciences. The department was meanwhile renamed “the Department of Foreign Languages and Literature,” with a new focus on literature and language. It also started its MA program in the same year. The department has both undergraduate and graduate students of approximately 500.
