Center for Basic Education and Integrated Learning

The Center for Basic Education and Integrated Learning is responsible for liberal arts, health and physical education. These will be a basis for students to become a member of society. The goals are three fold; namely to improve students’ learning ability, to provide basic knowledge within a particular field, and to offer teacher training courses. It means we lay a foundation for students to succeed in society.
