The General Education Center (GEC) is committed to the spirit of Angela Merici in Ursuline education and provides diverse courses to support the 5-year junior college, 4-year college, and 2-year college programs at Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages. The general education (GE) requirements are intended to provide undergraduates with a broader scope and balance to the study of a specific major.
