國際學院不分系英語學士班 Interdisciplinary Degree Program

在快速變遷的環境下,國際學院為了讓學生多元化選擇,多方探索不同學科領域,量身打造一套差異化學習,培育具有宏觀素養以及終身學習能力之創新與未來領導人才,因而設立「國際學院不分系英語學士班」。

東海大學國際學院取經美國之通識課程「國際領導課程」,並輔以Mentor Program (聘請美國應屆畢業生來校擔任學生Mentor)、Mini-mester制度 (聘請海外教授來校授課),成為台灣真正全英語教學國際學院之首例。

  3. 聘請美籍專任助教,協助必修課程的輔導。
  4. 彈性學期時間規畫,每學年定期邀請外籍教授開設選修課程。
  5. 每年招收外籍學生來台進行聯合教學,並到國際型企業參訪。

  8. 建立完整的華語及英語學習環境及生活輔導機制。
  9. 開設一套獨具特色的全英語通識教育課程。

主任的話

This Interdisciplinary Degree Program (IDP) in the Tunghai University International College is a gateway into most majors at Tunghai University for international students with limited or no Chinese ability. The first two years are spent exploring various majors, completing general education requirements in English, and taking Chinese language classes to expand students’ course options in their final two years. In the final two years, students declare a major in another department or a concertation in the International College. The IDP is ideal for students who want to improve their Chinese ability and explore a variety of academic disciplines as part of a vibrant international community.

The teachers, students, and study overseas opportunities create a unique international experience for students in the IC. The faculty of the IC is composed of both local and international teachers. Also, a third of the student population is from overseas (34 different countries). This combination of teachers and students creates a truly international environment. Moreover, the university has numerous exchange and double degree programs with leading universities around the world.

International applications at most universities in Taiwan require students to specify intended majors, but not all student are ready to do so at the start of their studies. However, this program is similar to most US universities where students can be admitted without a declared major. In addition, the program’s foundation is a liberal arts educational approach that aims to cultivate students’ creativity, sense of globalization, interdisciplinary learning ability, critical thinking ability, and ability to innovate.
