Objectives of Institute

The Graduate Institute of Futures Studies at Fo Guang University is the first graduate school in Taiwan and in the region that combines research and application of futures studies, so as to explore futures trends.

As we enter the new century, the changes taking place in our society are happening at a rate that is phenomenally faster than any previous eras. Hence, we will also be encountering many new challenges. This will occur at all levels: individuals, organizations and governments.

‘@‘@Futures Studies has become one of the mainstream bodies of knowledge in the 21st century. Unlike other disciplines that adopt a divide-and-conquer approach, Futures Studies instead attempt to integrate various disciplines so as to develop a holistic insight and prediction of possible futures.
