The Center for General Education aims to instill a holistic education, develop general education, and equip students to become capable and caring members of the workforce.
The center strives to train students to cultivate aspirations, knowledge, and understanding, in addition to developing altruistic and people-oriented reasoning, foreign language skills, and knowledge of the natural sciences. These skills improve logical thinking, foster a healthy and balanced personality, and lay the groundwork for lifelong learning.
In addition to reviewing and improving upon the current courses offerings, the center performs the following four tasks pursuant to CGUST development objectives:
The Center for General Education is comprised of the Department of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, the Department of Foreign Languages, the Department of Natural Sciences, the Department of Physical Education, and the Department of General Education of the Chiayi Campus.
The Department of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences
The Department of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences was established to provide teaching and re-search in the liberal arts and social sciences in order to train students to possess both humanistic thinking and a diligent spirit that will benefit them when they become professionals in service to society.
The Department of Foreign Languages
In response to the midand long-term development plans of CGUST, the objectives of the Department of Foreign Languages are to continually strive to improve language-teaching quality, encourage students to learn foreign languages, and provide students with a quality language-learning environment. The department provides and manages the software and hardware needed for teaching languages, periodically holds language- related events, tests students' language abilities, advises them on language-learning issues, and promotes the development of teaching materials in an effort to increase students' motivation and interest. In addition, the department actively collaborates with private enterprises. Through the implementation of various plans, industry-academia collaboration, and integration of teaching and research, CGUST is helping to build the bridge between academia and industry. Its instructors provid both theoretical and applied knowledge along with solid academic grounding.
The Department of Natural Sciences
The Department of Natural Sciences provides students with knowledge about the world in which we all live. Students utilize the school’s scientific labs and equipment to do active, hands-on experimentation which not only teaches them about the natural world, but also increases their motivation to learn.
The Department of Physical Education
The Department of Physical Education offers a wide range of physical education courses and endeavors to create a quality athletic and recreational environment. In addition to teaching students how to develop their athletic skills and form healthy recreational habits, the department organizes after-school athletic activities to help students cultivate team spirit, build up stamina, and develop a healthy personality.
