Besides, the office also promotes the policies set up by the university. The policy states for each major as strengthening basic courses teaching and broader major courses teaching, gearing teaching to the particular needs of each student and offering teaching on the basis of a variety of orientations. The office has set itself the following goal: to provide a more general (or more diversified courses) teaching for junior students and more broad major courses for senior students. In order to attain the goal, the office has implemented a teaching system in which courses are organized by each school or department (or by broader majors) instead of by traditional majors. The courses offered include basic courses (so called platform courses), major basic courses, general elective courses, and research courses. Besides, the office is promoting the credit system which is a combination of teaching program and students’ free choice of courses guided by their supervisors. Students can freely choose all courses offered, including required courses. The system allows students fully develop their characteristics, specialty, and interests by providing students an environment with more freedom and opportunity to reshape themselves.
