The General Education Centre (GEC) was established in 1998. It offers a wide range of Cluster Area Requirement (CAR) subjects to, among others, UGC-funded undergraduates at the University. It also offers a Service-Learning (SL) Subject, entitled “Social Poverty in Developing Countries,” for undergraduate students.

The GEC is distinguished by the diversity of the staff members’ research backgrounds and teaching experience. Their fields include art studies, cinema studies, ethnic studies, gender studies, history literature, natural science, philosophy and political science. The special emphasis on the importance of interdisciplinary studies and the cultivation of critical and creative thinking is embodied in all of the CAR subjects they offer.
