    University System of Taiwan (UST) connecting four distinguished research-oriented universities in Taiwan, National Chiao Tung University (NCTU), National Tsing Hua University (NTHU), National Central University (NCU) and National Yang Ming University (NYMU). The International Program in Inter-Asia Cultural Studies, University System of Taiwan (IACS-UST) seeks to advance new forms of interdisciplinary knowledge that connect academic learning to inter-Asian as well as global problems and contexts. It highlights four curricula clusters: (1) Critical Theory and Asian Modernity, (2) Contemporary Thought-trends and Social Movement, (3) Gender and Sexuality Studies, (4) Visual Culture Studies (Art History & Cinema Studies) with a pool of 70 outstanding faculty members from various disciplinary backgrounds in the four universities.

    IACS-UST brings together the strength and specialization of these colleagues and forms a strong research team as well as solid curricula. We have a strong supporting departments and programs from the neighboring campuses, including History, Philosophy, Chinese, Japanese, English, French, Taiwanese Literature, Sociology, Social Research and Cultural Studies, Ethnic Studies, Visual Studies, etc.  We offer courses both in English and in Chinese, also offer mandarin courses of various levels for international students. Students are required to choose one specialized area of interest but may take courses from any of the four course clusters organized by the Program, and cross-campus transportation is provided by the UST to facilitate enrollment in courses located on different campuses.

    In addition to course work, the International Program in Inter-Asia Cultural Studies offers a diverse community of scholars with passionate commitments to intellectual inquiry in the classroom, in scheduled special seminars, and in dozens of workshops and conferences held each year throughout the UST. International exchange agreements have been signed by the program with 18 other institutions of cultural studies throughout the region, thus offering further opportunities to coordinate with other Asian cultures and studies.

    IACS-UST is not only a cultural and economic reality but most importantly a historical-philosophical construct laden with multiple and conflicting forces. We welcomes students who wish to develop their research skills focusing on the inter-relations of Asian regions, scholarships may be awarded to students with outstanding academic performance and strong research potential.

    The Master Program for the academic year 2014 now accepting applications at each Universities,Doctorate program is planned for 2016. For more information regarding the structure and content of the course, consult the following site:
