The Natural Resources and Environmental Studies program of the National Dong Hwa University is focusing on ecology, biodiversity conservation, and environmental management. 


The Natural Resources and Environmental Studies program of the National Dong Hwa University  program is supported by 26 full-time faculty members with expertise spanning ecosystem study and environmental education. Recognizing the complexity of ecosystems and the need to address environmental issues with an inter-disciplinary approach, the mission of this department is to educate students to become innovative and effective stewards of the environment who consider natural systems and human societies.


This program builds on its foundation by integrating courses in ecology and conservation. To promote the inter-disciplinary approach, this program offers courses in earth science and resource management. Specific study plans can be arranged to fit an individual student's interest. 

Additionally, we encourage students to participate in local community-based management projects. Connections with universities in China, Japan, Korea, Germany, and the USA provide opportunities for short term courses and exchange programs.
