GENERAL SUBJECTS
  Since its founding, the University has been dedicated to the education of women. The educational philosophy is based on Christian humanism and a thorough background in the liberal arts. Integration of various disciplines has been the primary element in achieving this educational goal.


For students entered after 2012
Physical Education 2 credits
First Foreign Language (English) 8 credits
Second Foreign Language (French, German, Spanish, Chinese, or Korean) 8 credits
Christian Studies 8 credits
TOTAL 26 credits

   The aim of Physical Education is to give students a better understanding of sports culture so that they can live in a healthy and active way throughout their lives.

   The study of Foreign Languages enables students to attain the necessary language ability to participate in the global community and also to broaden their knowledge and viewpoint by learning the cultural background of foreign countries and the people who speak those languages.

   Through study and research on Christianity, which served as the foundation upon which European history and culture were built, students acquire a sense of morality as well as deep insight into human life from the Christian point of view.
