1. Chung-Ang University Graduation Requirements

           In order to graduate from CAU, students must meet the required number of credits, which are different according to the student’s respective major (like how Media Communications majors would have to have a total of 45 credits and those studying Computer Engineering need 84), have equal to or more than 15 credits from core electives, and must have taken all of the mandatory electives. Also, they must provide proof of their proficiency in Chinese characters and English. The former can be done by taking the Chinese Character Qualification exam, in which Arts and Physical Education Majors must pass level 4, while other majors require level 3. English proficiency on the other hand, is quite diverse and depends on the student’s major. Ranging from a 600 to a 900 TOEIC score, it is important that students check what their required passing score is for their major.

2. Who Wants to Take Tests?

           If a student doesn’t wish to take tests to pass graduation requirements, they have the option to take a lecture related to Chinese characters, two or more of them in fact, which would be the equivalent of passing the aforementioned exams. The same applies to English proficiency as well, in which case students must take three or more lectures of their major characterized as English A (meaning that the lecture will be carried out in English entirely). Alternatively, English B major lectures (which means that the lecture will contain materials that are explained in English) would count as half of an English A lecture, so taking six of them meets the English proficiency requirement.

3. Advanced Majors, Double Majors and Synthesized Majors

           In order to graduate, a student must take part in one of the above mentioned curriculum, and each type of majoring has different requirements, as well as the requirements differing for each field of studies. For example, double majors tend to have a wide range of required credits for respective majors (depending on Engineering Certification, Teaching Certification, whether the student must take major prerequisites etc.), so it’s best to call the respective department office for details. Advanced majors within humanities/social sciences and engineering/natural sciences require 66 major credits apart from a few exceptions like the Creative ICT Department. There are currently five synthesized majors of which their names and required number of credits are the following; Finance Engineering (45), Cultural Contents (36), Entrepreneurship (36), Game/Interactive Media (36), Humanities/Software (45). Multi majors can only be applied for during the marked period of time on the school calendar each semester.

           Since college requires more than just showing up to class in order to graduate, it’s vital that each student makes a plan of what he or she would study and how, in order to successfully finish his or her student career. It’s never too late to start preparing for the future, and besides, where’s the harm in planning ahead?
