Academics Department Overview

Department Overview

Mathematics and Information Science

  • Leading education research activities in math or information science for gifted students.
  • Required math courses will be operated by level to individualize the education of students in order to help them to realize their potential in math by reinforcing their basic knowledge; this will be based on realizing creativity. In response to the worldwide trend in information science education, students will be required to take courses in Java programming, through which students will gain basic object-oriented concepts. Furthermore, in the programming scheme (Scheme), the curriculum, by introducing a non-buried information science and information science education program, will deliver a foundation of information science that can be done in the field with creativity and expression.

Physics and Earth Science

  • Guided intensive education and research activities are offered for students interested in physics and earth science.
  • Emphasis will be placed on basic science education through high-tech science and experiment/exercise period, field trips and the ongoing quest to cultivate scientific creativity and thinking skills through activities and individualized learning that cater to the abilities of students to increase their thinking and problem solving skills. To expand high quality science, conditions conducive to hands-on experiments and training and basic science lessons appropriate to individual abilities and based on hands-on experiments to deepen students¡¯ learning will be offered. Courses to enhance creativity for students gifted in science will be operated.

Chemistry and Biology

  • Responsible for giving students interested in Chemistry and Biology a deep education and research activities.
  • Operating a Chemistry/Biology curriculum based on self leadership skills through a humanist education to provide a deep understanding of the logical/critical/creative thinking and attitude needed to explore new knowledge. Explore ¡¤ experiment ¡¤ practice the basics of science education to promote science through an interest in nature and curiosity so that gifted students and faculty can increase their problem-solving skills through creativity and scientific thinking skills and through experimental research methods that enhance their exploration of science and their personal knowledge.
  • Also, to help students explore their creativity and help enhance their abilities in intramural science events and to take advantage of the knowledge learned in class and lectures by invited renowned scientists thus shaping their broad knowledge acquisition and learning by motivating through opportunities to contribute to scholarship.

Arts and Humanities

  • Responsible for Humanities, Social Sciences, Physical Education, Fine Arts, and Music education as well as educational refinement.
  • Providing gifted students with a varied Arts and Humanities-related education to expand their logical, critical, and creative thinking skills. Learning programs and educational materials are developed to enable students develop creativity and especially aptitude and character through various special activities so that they can become world class scientists will have the qualities and talents needed of leaders. Through reading education and use of the library the basics of humanities and the classics will be cultivated and foreign language education, understanding of the international community will be taught so that students will attain the awareness and attitudes that become world citizens. The education will be based on encouraging delicate sensibilities, appreciation of aesthetics, and a strong physique so that it will foster a refined and dignified life.
