Major Courses

1. Now Technology and Social Development Course

        Since the middle of the 20 century, the science research including science history, science philosophy, and science sociology considers technology development as a subject of reflection and does research from the point of view of history, philosophy, and sociology, finding technology development is related to complicated aspects, such as philosophical thinking, religion, politics, economy, education, law, Internet, management, and social system. Encountering more complicated social change and technology development, it is necessary to make students of science and engineering and of humanism and socialism understand the close interaction of technology and society. Therefore, it needs a further  development on General Education which is related to “science, technique, humanism, and society.”

4. Democracy-and-Rule of Law and Citizens Participation Course

      Though democracy-and-rule of law has had its effects in our country, people still not understand the truth of democracy, which is that the minority should obey the majority, and the majority should respect the minority. Besides, democracy should base on law. At the same time, we should make citizens participate public affairs positively, providing government the chance of self-reflection and making improvement. Therefore, we can stop the public chaos result from that citizens can not express their disagreements, and will not influence the development of democracy-and-rule of law.

        In this course, we will use the way of interdisciplinary training combined with law and politics. We will teach students civil law, criminal law, administrative law, intellectual property, and some law knowledge by the teachers of law department in our university, who contribute to this course’s plan, hoping to expand the view of citizens nowadays. We hope that students entering the society after graduation will have law temperament, and learn how to be true citizens now.

“Environment” is a living place of individual, group, and environment. In this course, we will aim on nurturing the ability to appreciate an artistic subject, the development of group relationship, and the exploration on the issue—“Environment Ethics”, which means people and environment can live permanently. To respond to “Aesthetics” and “Skill”, we hope to abundance life’s qualities of students by mixing aesthetics into daily life.

        The important point of this course’s development is to nurture student’s ability of appreciation, then to introduce them to think the ideal and harmony situation of “Life” and “Environment.”

        The characteristic of this course’s development is different from the normal “Life Aesthetics” course. It aims on the ability of appreciation and skill on the artistic subject. The much more important aim is to discuss all individuals’ living together and harmony in the common environment.
