The German department was funded in 1963, as a section under the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures. In 1975 the German section was allowed to upgrade its status to department level. In 1994 it sent 20 students to Bonn University, Germany, to study for one year. Since then it sends every year about 25 students to Germany. If you want to study German language and then go to Germany to experience the German way of study, the Germen department of Tamkang University is the most appropriate place for you!
