To meet the demands of changing social and national development, the department was renamed as the Department of Applied Science of Living in 1991. Adhering to the spirit of school name, Putting into Practice, our instructional purposes are emphasized on both theory and practice. Two professional divisions, Foodservice Management and Children & Family Studies, were drawn up in order to cultivate operational, managerial people in related life science areas.
