Thammasat University

  • Description
  • Introduction

    Tham­masat Uni­ver­sity is Thailand’s sec­ond old­est uni­ver­sity. Offi­cially inau­gu­rated on 27 June 1934 at Tha Phra Chan on the Rat­tanakosin Island and on the Bank of the Chao Phraya River. The University’s founder, Prof. Dr. Pridi Banomy­ong, orig­i­nally named Tham­masat the “Uni­ver­sity of Ethics and Pol­i­tics”, reflect­ing its pri­mary mis­sion to offer higher edu­ca­tion in the dis­ci­plines of law and pol­i­tics to the new cit­i­zenry and pre­pare Thai peo­ple for their new demo­c­ra­tic sys­tem. Hop­ing to make higher learn­ing acces­si­ble to all, Tham­masat began as an open uni­ver­sity with 7,094 stu­dents enrolled in its first aca­d­e­mic year.

    Since its ini­tial incep­tion, Tham­masat Uni­ver­sity has evolved from an open uni­ver­sity for law and pol­i­tics to a pres­ti­gious inter­na­tional research uni­ver­sity offer­ing all lev­els of aca­d­e­mic degrees and pro­duc­ing cut­ting edge research across a broad spec­trum of aca­d­e­mic dis­ci­plines. The Uni­ver­sity has grad­u­ated more than 300,000 stu­dents since its found­ing who have gone on to make great con­tri­bu­tions to the devel­op­ment and progress of Thai­land and the world. Notable uni­ver­sity alumni include for­mer Prime Min­is­ters, lead­ing politi­cians and gov­ern­ment fig­ures, Bank of Thai­land gov­er­nors, supreme court judges, provin­cial gov­er­nors, as well as experts in var­i­ous fields.

    Today, Tham­masat Uni­ver­sity still fol­lows its guid­ing phi­los­o­phy to uphold aca­d­e­mic excel­lence, ser­vices to soci­ety, pro­mo­tion of arts and cul­ture, social equal­ity and social jus­tice under the philoso­phies of con­sti­tu­tional monar­chy and democ­racy. Tham­masat stu­dents are not only well-​rounded and well-​adjusted mem­bers of their com­mu­nity, but are also con­scious of their social respon­si­bil­ity as famously expressed by a for­mer student,

    I love Tham­masat because Tham­masat teaches me to love the people.“
