Department History

Established in 1962, the Fine Arts Section has cultivated numbers of outstanding art talents and made significant contribution the art and cultural development of the country over the past 40 years. At the beginning, the section was composed of three groups, Chinese Painting, Western Painting, and Sculpture. After the school was promoted to an institute in 1994, the Fine Arts Section was renamed the “Department of Fine Arts”.

After the painting and calligraphy group and sculpture group spun off in to two independent departments, the Department of Fine Arts has since specialized in cultivating and equipping students with the theories of eastern and western arts, in an attempt to inspire their creative thinking and encourage students to keep pace with social movements. In addition, we have introduced new thoughts and art & technology (ArT) to internationalize our development.

With over 700 staff and students, the department has a daytime division, continuing education division, and other programs. There is also the student association and class leaders. Aiming to cultivate professionals in art creation and art theory, students spread across Taiwan and the world after graduation to create works covering both traditional and innovative forms and contents. Each faculty member has his own specialties and is dedicated to cultural and art education and activities with outstanding performance. Along with the university’s well-established structure, students can develop a multidisciplinary, creative, and perspective vision through taking courses across disciplines and in an environment filled with the influence of different forms of art.
