About us

In recent years, the rapid development of the welfare state in Taiwan, the demand for social work professional has increased dramatically. Soon after the Social Work Act of 1997 was enacted, social work licensure system was established accordingly. In responding to the high demand of social work professional, the Department of Social Work in the National Pingtung University of Science and Technology was established in 2000 and a BSW program was offered. In order to offer students a personalized education and customized to their interests and needs, the Evening and Weekend BSW program was created in 2001. To advance social work education and cultivate social work research skills, a MSW program was established in 2006.
