4. Multiple career paths for the students to shine in
Our department’s students have repeatedly received the Ministry of Science and Technology’s College Student Research Award and were successfully accepted into their graduate program of choice through recommendations or examinations (such as those in National Taiwan Normal University’s Department of Educational Psychology and Counseling; National Central University’s Graduate Institute of Human Resource Management; Graduate Institute of Human Resource Management, National Changhua University of Education; Graduate Institute of Measurement and Statistics at the National University of Tainan; National Chung Cheng University’s Department of Criminology; and the Graduate School of Criminology, National Taipei University). Our students have also qualified as Level B technicians for employment services—some students qualified within their first year of attendance—and as counseling psychologists (with a 96% pass rate).
