Our University's general education courses focus on cultivating all-around, well-informed individuals with diversity, breadth, and depth of academic experience Through general education, our aim is to help the students grow into versatile individuals by helping them to establish sound human values, understand the interrelatedness of the various areas of study, eliminate narrowness of thought regarding academic disciplines outside of the students areas of specialization, and to promote balanced intellectual, emotional, and physical development To this end, the University offers the student’s a diverse set of general education course options All University general education courses are 2-unit (2 contact hours), stand-alone courses The courses are divided into 11 disciplines

Concentration

The 1st concentration is a student's first choice of a major based on an estimation of his/her potential for self-realization and contribution to the country and society Under the guidance of department academic advisors, the students must decide on a suitable curriculum that enhances their professional aptitude and fulfills the concentration credit requirements for graduation during the 4 years of study



Double concentration (Advanced concentration)

Students may select a second concentration in addition to their primary concentration when entering the school and complete the second concentration as a requirement Nevertheless, transfer students and students entrusted by the military may take a double concentration or advanced concentration as elective A double concentration starts from the sophomore year Students attending the College of Law or the College of Information and Industrial Engineering and selecting the engineering education certification system shall take a minor or elective If students attending any college (including the Division of International Studies) except for the College of Education and College of Law take an advanced concentration, a minor shall be taken up as a requirement Students intending to select the old multiple concentration system shall take an advanced concentration


2nd Concentration (The 2nd concentration system shall be offered for students entering the school in and before 2006)

Most universities require the students to choose a 2nd area of concentration This is to increase adaptability to a rapidly changing society, to provide a career choice in a field other than the student's area of major, and to equip the students with a deeper and broader perspective of other fields through an understanding of the different academic disciplines In our university, the 2nd concentration is declared in the sophomore year Accordingly, a student must carefully select his/her 2nd concentration, based on his/her aptitude, toward the end of the 2nd semester of the freshman year The student must then diligently pursue studies and acquire the credits required by fulfilling a 2nd concentration The 2nd concentration may be selected only from the departments installed on the campus of registration If the student was unable to acquire the required number of credits but was able to accrue more than 21 credits, those credits will be counted toward a minor The 2nd concentration credit requirements set by each college are as follows:
