BRIEF HISTORY
As the economic and social environment changes, security management and related business types are expanding, which has resulted in higher demand for security managers. Therefore, integrating the three specialized subjects of crime prevention, police intervention and security management, the Department of Security Management was set up and started to officially recruit students in 2007-08.

Among all the Schools of Social Science in Taiwan, our university has the first Security Management Department. In the first academic year, a class of 60 students enrolled, and then two class cohorts enrolled from 2008-09. So far, the number of undergraduate students in the department has already reached to four hundred.

This department has now been set up for eight years; formerly named the Department of Security Management, for the purpose of reintegrating the modules of criminal justice and security management, then in 2011-12 it officially became the Department of Security Management and Social Work. Now, it is being renamed to Department of Criminal Justice for 2017-18 recruitment to heighten our students’ future workforce competitiveness.

To deepen the development of both security management and community affairs, and to pursue the prosperity of workplace organization and cultivate higher-level workers, a Master’s Program and a Work-experience Master’s Program, in 2013-14 and 2015-16, respectively, were authorized for establishment by the Ministry of Education, Taiwan.

In recent years, the department has been increasingly pro-active to cultivate security management professionals. Not only will we continue to teach students security management expertise and skills, but also emphasize a more complete professional education by renaming as Department of Criminal Justice in 2017-18. Thus, our department will then include undergraduate and master’s programs in Criminal Justice as well as a Work-experience Masters’ Programs in Cross-Strait Relations and Criminal Justice, granting Bachelor of Laws and Master of Laws degrees.
