The General Education Centre (GEC) was established in 1998. It offers a wide range of Cluster Area Requirement (CAR) subjects to UGC-funded undergraduate students and others at the University. The Centre also offers a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) to the general public and is co-developing more MOOCs with other departments.

GEC is distinguished by the diversity of it staff members’ research background and teaching experiences. Their fields include philosophy, literature, history, and political science, as well as studies of art, cinema, and genders. This leads to a natural emphasis on interdisciplinary studies and the cultivation of critical and creative thinking in GEC subjects.
