The Department of Economics at Fu Jen Catholic University was established in 1962, when the University was re-established in New Taipei City, Taiwan. Over its long history, the faculty in the Department held the belief that a university is a place for learning, not just for its students but also for its faculty. Because of that belief, the Department has been cultivating outstanding alumni and producing quality research.

Our education emphasizes not absorption of knowledge but the ability to reason logically. We also believe that students' learning experience should not be limited to only classrooms or textbooks, we therefore developed very close relation with industry, which gives our students opportunity of corporate visits, internship, and a series of guest lectures by the experts from industry.

Fu Jen University is a comprehensive university, offering 50 disciplines. Students are encouraged to take a second major or a minor field of study. As long as the students study in our department with open-mind and serious learning attitude, they will surely have a fulfilling and rewarding university life.

Fu Jen Catholic University also has many partner universities around the world and they provide many overseas exchange opportunities. We certainly welcome students from oversea to spend a semester in our program to experience Taiwanese culture.
