Dr. Oshimura Takashi, Vice President of Aoyama Gakuin University, Japan, Visits the College of Social Sciences, National Taiwan University
Dr. Oshimura Takashi, Vice President of Aoyama Gakuin University (AGU), accompanied by Dr. Paul Chen, an NTU alumni and Professor of University of Tokyo, visited the College on 10 May 2016. They were received by Dr. Kuo-Hsien Su, Dean of the College of Social Sciences, Dr. Han-Pu Tung, Director of the College’s International Affairs, and Dr. Yung-Mau Chao, Professor of the Department of Political Science, NTU.
AGU is a renowned private institution in Japan, providing an integrated education system from pre-school to higher education. NTU has maintained an excellent relationship with AGU. Dr. Junichi Umetsu, President of AGU, visited the College in August 2015. The College provided a space for AGU to establish its Taiwan Office. AGU has signed the MoU for academic collaboration and university- and college-level exchange student agreements with NTU.
Politics and economics are the core departments of development in AGU. Unlike COSS, these two disciplines operate as independent colleges in AGU. NTU and AGU look forward to signing a double bachelor degree agreement in politics and economics. Dr. Takashi said that AGU welcomes students from NTU and would consider offering scholarships for students seeking to pursue this program.
