Fu Jen Catholic University was first established in Beijing in 1925 at the order of Pope Pius XI. In 1962, it was re-established in Taiwan at its current location in New Taipei City. The Department of Economics was one of the first departments that Fu Jen established as it re-founded itself here in Taiwan. In 1992, the Department established a Master's program in Economics. Over the past 60 years, the Department has grown into a solid educational institute in the University. We have 500 undergraduate students, 28 graduate students, around 15 faculty members, and 4 supporting staff in the Department. Today we are proud to say we have thousands of alumni who have graduated from our program. They contribute greatly both to our local society and to a variety of countries around the world.
