Graduate School of
Educational Communications and Technology

BRIEF HISTORY

Our department was found on Aug 1st, 2000 and was the first graduate school of Educational Communications and Technology in Taiwan. The first chairman of the graduate school was Professor Tzong-Wei Li. On August, 2001, Professor Yuan-Chen Liu was appointed to be the chairman of the graduate school; on August, 2004, Professor Tzong-Wei Li came back to continue as our chairman; on August 2006, Professor Cheng-Chih Chien took over the position and became the fourth chairman; on August 1st, 2008, Jen-Yi Chao was called to be the fifth chairman of the Graduate School of Communications and Technology.

Since our establishment, our faculty and students contributed tremendous efforts to our reputation and tradition in a rewarding way so our graduates are able to compete in the job market. We will continue to seek support from our faculty and prepare a proposal for our doctorial program and further development.

GOALS AND CHARACTERISTICS

Graduate School of Educational Communications and Technology is a connecting center of knowledge that takes three professional fields, integrating education, communications, and technologies into one study that could allow us to emphasize both theory and practice in helping the students develop information and media skills and have concepts of technologies and humanities that allow our graduates to be educators, instructional developers, information engineers, industrial researchers, media producers, and editors. The job markets for our graduates include business, industries, broadcast communities, all levels of schools, and research and development units.

We characterize ourselves as an “Honest Business” and demanding the students’ “Basic Skills.” “Honest” means that our administration, teaching or students’ learning should follow our educational ideas: Impartial, solid, and straight. The students’ “Basic Skills” means our emphasis on virtuous development and fundamental learning skills. Students would not only learn how to be “right” thru all courses, service course, and student activities but also be the professional with specialized skills.

COURSE MISSION

Our course mission is to emphasize both theory and practice, including foundation, instructional design and development, information application, media and communication, and research methods in five categories. In order to prepare the students’ diversified and unified abilities, we set up a minimum requirement for each category.

GRADUATION REQUIREMENT

A. Master degree candidates must complete their thesis after revision and the electronic files. The format of the thesis should follow the standard of our university.

B. Graduate school students are required to collaborate with their supervisors for publishing their thesis in academic periodicals or presenting their thesis in public conferences with critiques. However, only one candidate can apply the same article.

C. If candidates received approval from their supervisor, they can replace the thesis requirement with award-winning projects from city/county level multimedia competitions.

D. For those students who select competition as their option and have received approval from their supervisor, they have to apply for their oral defense and comply with the related evidences prior to the end of the semester. Only students, who filled out their graduation application forms and were approved by school’s graduation committee, will meet the requirements to graduate.

E. Master degree candidates will need to pass the English ability exam held by our department. (If candidates have already passed the high-intermediate level certification of GEPT or TOEIC with a minimum score of 700, students can be exempted from this requirement.)

FUTURE PERSPECTIVES

Our graduate school is currently enlisted with the College of Science, and will return to College of Education so it fits the academic essence. Also, we formally established a Multimedia Creation and Animation curriculum in the fall semester of 2008 for our undergraduate school students. This curriculum will not only strengthen our students’ competitiveness but also enrich our faculty team. In addition, we plan to get authorization for our doctorial program in Communities and Technologies for the demand in educational technologies and digital industries and for the trend of globalized educational technology.
