IMPA is a two-year master program that combines course and research together. The program is independent from all other departments and institutes within the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR). IMPA recruits local Taiwan students, overseas Chinese students, Chinese students from mainland China, and international students. We welcome both degree-seeking and exchange students.
IMPA offers all-English curriculum. Students need not only to join weekly seminars in English but also to write their final thesis in English. For international students from non-Chinese speaking populations, the University also offers free Chinese language courses. However, Chinese language proficiency is not a pre-requisite condition for studying in IMPA program.
IMPA encourages students to do research relevant to international and/or global concerns in either agricultural or natural resources issues, preferably about students’ home countries. IMPA would provide administrative support to overseas research, study, and apprentice where available. IMPA is supported by all the academic units in CANR. This means that when you are admitted into IMPA, your future thesis adviser may come from one of the academic departments or graduate institutes within the College. IMPA students can conduct their research in the following three tracks of academic disciplines:
Crop and Animal Production: Agronomy, Horticulture, Animal Science, Plant Protection, Soil Science & Plant Nutrition, Food Science, Agricultural Engineering, Biotechnology;
Natural Resource Conservation and Management: Forest Science, Water & Soil Conservation, Environmental Sciences;
Agricultural Economics and Rural Development: Agribusiness, Agricultural policy, Agricultural Extension, Rural Development, Landscape and Recreation.
