Specialization Program

Given the increasing international mobility of talents and to make the degree-granting system more flexible and diverse, our university, based on the concept of the "Future University," promotes the pursuit of the field of expertise module courses, allowing students to be awarded degrees based on their academic field and courses are taken.

Specialization Program allows students to creatively arrange and combine courses within the existing admission channels without breaking the framework of existing departments, thereby creating new knowledge and making our talent cultivation model more flexible and diverse. Students are not limited to studying within a specific department. Still, they can apply to pursue a bachelor's degree in a college or apply for a bachelor's degree based on their own interests and field of expertise, thus achieving the potential of limited entry but unlimited exit.

To align with the university's policy of promoting the Specialization Program module courses, this school currently offers 10 Specialization Program modules, including "Forest Biology", "Forest Therapy", "Climate Change in Forest Environment: Forest Materials and Energy Cycles", "Household Applications of Biomaterials", "Bio-based Composite Materials", "Furniture Industry", "Protected Area Governance and Management", "Environmental Education", "Strategy and Management on Net Zero Carbon Emission Agriculture" and "Forest Carbon Sink."
