Starting from 2004, all University General Education (University GE) courses have been categorized into Four Areas:
Area A – Chinese Cultural Heritage,
Area B – Nature, Science and Technology,
Area C – Society and Culture, and
Area D – Self and Humanity.
With the support from over forty teaching units, more than three hundred University GE courses are offered. Using the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a framework, OUGE launched the SDG Study Scheme in 2020-21 to prepare students for the challenges of tomorrow.
