In accordance with the national policy of trade internationalization and becoming an Asian operational center, the Department of Applied Foreign Languages was established in 1994 to cultivate professionals in foreign languages and business. This consisted of a daytime two-year associate degree program, a daytime five-year associate degree program, and the nighttime two-year associate degree program. In order to broaden the scope of excellence in learning, the department began offering a five-year associate degree in Japanese language in 1995. In 1999, the five-year assocaite degree program was brought to a halt and the Applied English Department was established with a four-year bachelor's degree program. The students of this program were required to additionally take two semesters of Japanese, French or other foreign languages.
In 2000, this department began offering the students enrolled in the five-year associate degree program an extra two years in order to provide them with a four-year bachelor's degree. Furthermore, in keeping the life-long learning policy of the Ministry of Education, in 2002 this department began offering weekend and weeknight classes for those students engaged in full-time careers in order to give students the extra two years required to obtain a bachelor's degree. Because the student population of the daytime two-year and five-year associate degree programs were reduced in 2005, the programs were eventually discontinued. However, Department of Continuing Education established a new four-year bachelor's degree program and provide students with the opportunity to complete the final two-years of a bachelor's degree as well as a complete four-year bachelor's degree program in order to produce more English-speaking professionals and contribute to the society as well as the nation.
