u        The Department of Tourism and Hospitality at Taiwan Hospitality and Tourism College (THTC) is the only five-year program in eastern Taiwan offering a major in tourism.



u        The department operates in accordance with the “2008 Tourists Multiplication Project” promoted by the Executive Yuan. Adhering to the concept of vocational education, our goal is to play an important role in tourism education and cultivate competent, professional employees in the tourism industry.



u        We establish a connection between the students’ tourism education and their previous nine years of elementary and secondary education. We seek cooperation with the industry, carry out the “Sandwich Plan,” and organize overseas tours in order to enhance the development of tourism-related professionals. We endeavor to equip the students with solid expertise and capability through the use of various teaching methods and systems.



u        The department aims to employ many varied teaching resources to integrate coursework in the practice and management of tourism, art, language, and information. This conforms to future needs identified as crucial to the development of the tourism industry in , and also helps to promote cultural standards in eastern .



u        The department attempts to improve the professional skills of the teachers, plans practical curricula, and purchases modern equipment in order to fulfill the school’s goal of building a high-potential teaching institution in the tourism field.



u        The department plays a positive role in activities hosted by local communities in order to build up good relationship in the tourism industry and to boost the interaction between government officials, the tourism industry, and educational institutions. We also try to integrate information-technology knowledge together with tourism education to create a new outline for the tourism industry.



u        We inspire our students to increase their abilities in creative thinking, aesthetic sense, and project planning and organizing. We also help our students to apply their academic knowledge to practical management situations. It is our goal to cultivate new professionals for the tourism industry that have multiple skills and cultural sophistication.



u        We assist our students in obtaining at least three certificates or licenses in tourism-related fields, and therefore enable them to become more competitive in the job market.

Curriculum Design  



u        The department’s curricula feature practice, professionalism, creativity, modernization, and internationalism.



u        The design and plan of the curricula focus on three dimensions: cultural creativity, practical management, and language distribution. The curricula are based on a fundamental knowledge of tourism, converge with modern trends, and explore both the width and depth of tourism education. The content is based on practice combined with theoretical study.



u        Apart from the courses required by the Ministry of Education, we have planned various optional courses that are up-to-date, creative, and practical. These courses will provide our students with multiple learning opportunities and future possibilities.



u        We positively promote cooperation links with local tourism-related industry and provide our students with plenty of internship choices. In order to fulfill the ideal of vocational education, the students are required to complete an internship of at least 900 hours.



u        The “Overseas Visit” is a required course in the second semester of the fifth school year. The purpose of arranging this course is to enhance the international vision of our students.



u        The “Graduation Exhibition” is the best chance for our students to demonstrate what they have learned during their five years of study to the public. This is also a good opportunity for companies to select future employees.



u        We greatly emphasize the cultivation of students’ language and professional abilities, and do everything

        possible to help them become tour guides and tour interpreters.
