Brief History

       The Department of Social Work at Fu Jen Catholic University, first established in 1968, was originally a Social Work Unit under the Department of Sociology. In August 1980, with the desire to extend their educational goals and improve the quality of education, the Social Work Unit acquired approval from the Ministry of Education for the creation of an independent Department of Social Work, which allowed undergraduate admission into the program. In August 1990, in order to meet the needs of university students, the department allowed students to choose the field as a double major. By August 1998, a Masters Program in Social Work was established under the approval of the Ministry of Education.
