Development Characteristics

The characteristics of the department are as follows:

(I) To embody the local learning, local internship and local employment

The campus is located in Pingtung region, south of the national territory. It has rich natural landscapes and complete leisure & recreation resources, such as Kenting National Park, Tapeng Bay National Scenic Area, Banloan Leisure Agricultural Area, etc. The market demands of the leisure industry are very abundant. Therefore, this department takes the “local employment” as its characteristic, and actively promotes students to participate in the license study, local industries visit and internship. The actual promotion approaches include establishing a strategic alliance of industry-academy cooperation with the local enterprises, constructing off-campus practice bases in Kaohsiung and Pingtung region, encouraging students to participate in community services, building good local relations, etc.

(II) To link with the sea

Pingtung City is surrounded by sea with abundant marine resources and ecological landscapes. Within the region, Kenting National Park and Tapeng Bay National Scenic Area are venues of the leisure sports. Furthermore, Taiwan is a standard island nation and has rich and diverse aquatic activities. Based on this external advantage, this department sets up the “Water-Based Specialty” as a unique characteristic of the department. The actual promotion approaches include conducting a strategic alliance in combination with the dealers for water-based leisure activities, encouraging students to obtain water-related certificates such as swimming, water motorcycle, diving, etc., and setting the first aid certificate as the graduation threshold for students. At present, this department has already carried out the industry-academy cooperation with the sailboat practitioners of Tapeng Bay National Scenic Area and the surfing practitioners of Kenting National Park. It takes the seamless integration of students in internship and employment as its major development goal.

(III) To practice the old-age care

The starting point of this school is the orange care with the social and humanistic care. Also, while Taiwan is stepping into the aging society, this department will set the “old-age care” as one of the department’s development characteristics. We seek cooperation with government agencies and non-government institutions, actively promote the elderly leisure activities and the development of physical fitness, and plan the senior leisure activities by connecting the educational curriculum with the elder.


The facilities include hot spring hotel and spa, Pétanque, the paintball field, the rock climbing center, the adventure educational field, the archery field, the frisbee field, the swimming pool, the gym, the table tennis room, the dancing room, the physical fitness room, and the therapy room for sports injuries.
