General Education Requirements

This program, initiated when the University of Cambodia first opened in 2003, aims to broaden the student's outlook and knowledge (objectives similar to those of the Foundation Year, subsequently introduced by ACC), as a complement to the depth of knowledge which the student gets in a particular major. The eight courses in four general fields that are required by ACC for a student's Foundation Year also partially fulfill the requirements of the University of Cambodia’s General Education (GE) program.

Together, the GE programme and the various major programs seek to produce students with well-rounded intellectual vision, creative aptitudes, and moral responsibility, as well as the necessary skills to ensure a balanced and practical education.

The following table lists the areas in which undergraduate students at the University of Cambodia have to do courses in order to meet our GE requirements (and also the guidelines set by ACC regarding the four fields independent of the student's chosen major).
