The Resource of a Diversity of Knowledge About Thai Art and Culture
Chulalongkorn University recognizes the importance of promoting Thai art and culture as well as Thai wisdom. The perpetuation, conservation and dissemination of Thai art and culture is a major part of the University’s mission. So, since the University’s conception until now, it has offered classes in different branches of knowledge relating to Thai art and culture, for example, language and literature, history, civilization, architecture, fine arts, music and dance. It has also established a research institute that specifically conducts research into the conservation and promotion of Thai art and culture—the Thai Studies Institute. The University also supports the activities of different Students’ Clubs, for example, the Buddhist Club, the Thai Music Club, the Thai Art and Culture Club, the Lanna Club and the Northeasterners’ Club. Each year a number of students who are interested in art and culture join these clubs.
