Overview

Why to study

Students in the general education program are advised to focus on writing and speech communication first. Students at the Associate of Arts in General Education programme at the National University are then counseled to explore mathematical and other formal systems to develop abstract reasoning abilities and are encouraged to take a course in informational literacy. Finally, all students are required to have exposure to the natural sciences, the humanities, fine arts, language, and the social and behavioral sciences. Many of these courses include an examination of the human condition in a multicultural society.
