The 728彩票 (hereinafter referred to as the College) was originated from the Department of Foreign Languages of Minjiang University, which was born by the merger of two departments, the Department of Foreign Languages of Fuzhou Teachers College (founded in 1958) and the Department of Foreign Languages of Minjiang Vocational University (founded in 1984), in 2002 and renamed the 728彩票 in 2017.

It boasts three secondary teaching units, namely the English Department, the Japanese Department, and the Department of Public Foreign Language Teaching. The English major is divided into three directions: business, translation, and normal education. The Japanese major focuses on the business Japanese.
