COLLEGE OF LIFE SCIENCES
The College of Life Sciences (CLS) was established in 2000, with the mission of developing high quality education and innovative research programs in biological, biomedical and biotechnological sciences on the east coast of Taiwan. The CLS consists of the Department of Life Science and the Department of Molecular Biology and Human Genetics. Each department offers B.S. degree and M.S. degree programs. With a staff of 32, and a student population of 380, including 20 postgraduate students, the CLS is dedicated to excellence in all its pursuits.
Research activities in the CLS cover neuroscience, cardiovascular science, oncology, biotechnology, new drug discovery, and biodiversity. The CLS administers a variety of programs and engages in cooperative efforts with state and county government, biotech companies, and research agencies.
To meet global challenges on enhancing quality of teaching and research programs, we continue, under university guidelines, to actively establish programs of international cooperation with signed agreements with several foreign universities for exchanges of scholars and students.
The objectives of education are to train students as professionals in life sciences and to apply scientific principles to meet the requirements of today’s society and industries, and to inspire our students to be lifelong learners and contributors to society.
The CLS places emphasis on cross-departmental, integrated teaching curricula offering interdisciplinary programs.The CLS also covers broad education in professional knowledge areas combined with fundamental core courses in Tzu Chi humanities, the social sciences, and communications to develop well-rounded academic experience.
