IHistory

During the vocational school period (from 1966 to 1999), our Educational Administration Department took charge in regulating the school’s overall general courses. In 1999, the time when the school became a college, the General Education Center was then founded with a purpose to blueprint and execute the general education courses of the school. In 2005, the school became a university and the General Education center then became a unit under the Administration of the Liberal Arts Yuan.

 

IIPhilosophy

Based on our school motto of “Diligent Study and Performing Benevolence”, Tajen University founds its cultivation of professional experts with creative thinking on the three values, “Improving the Quality of Human Life”, “Protecting our Environment” and “Improving Social Welfare”. To realize these ideals, the school especially emphasizes five distributive categories of general education courses which include 1.Liberal ARTS , 2. Social Science, 3. Natural Science, 4. Recreation and Health, and 5. Intelligent Living. With these five distributive categories of education, students can develop the five basic good qualities which include 1. Fluent Expression and Communication, 2. Constant Self-learning, 3. Work Ethic and Discipline, 4. Effective Team Work and Cooperation, 5. Independent Problem- Solving, 6. Creative Thinking, 7. Decent Human Interaction, 8. Effective Utilization of Computer and Information Science, and 9. Benign Human Care. In accordance with the requirements of different vocational departments, the general education courses aim not only at cultivating students’ professional knowledge and techniques but also at developing their advanced abilities for perpetual research and learning. With these efforts, we hope to cultivate students to become people with good work ethics, an effective power of flexibility, administration and rational thinking, a broad worldview and an abundant knowledge of arts and technology. And with these efforts, we will motivate students to a deep concern and care of humans, our society and our natural environment, thus reaching our aim of holistic education.
