Advantages of Cross-disciplinary Learning through Minor Programs and Double Majors at Yuan Ze University

Yuan Ze University's unique minor programs and double majors provide students with opportunities to explore multiple disciplines. These programs not only emphasize academic depth but also focus on cultivating students' comprehensive literacy, innovative thinking, and interdisciplinary abilities.

By exposing students to knowledge from different fields, these programs enhance students' innovation and problem-solving skills, making them more competitive and adaptable. Additionally, students' global perspectives and cultural understanding are enhanced, contributing to the cultivation of diverse talents.

We hope that more students can participate in these enriching and challenging academic experiences, exploring the endless possibilities of knowledge!

Minor Programs: Broadening Perspectives in Disciplines
Minor programs refer to studying courses in another related or different field alongside the major. Yuan Ze University offers a diverse range of minor options. Through minor courses, students can gain in-depth understanding of multiple disciplines and cultivate interdisciplinary abilities and thinking patterns. The comprehensive learning experience of minor programs helps enhance students' competitiveness, enabling them to meet the increasingly complex and diverse social demands.

Double Majors: Integrating Across Boundaries
Compared to minor programs, double majors are more in-depth and comprehensive. Double majors require students to simultaneously pursue required courses in two different disciplines, encouraging them to transcend disciplinary boundaries and explore connections and interactions between different fields. Through double majors, students not only acquire broader knowledge but also cultivate the ability to solve complex problems and adopt flexible thinking patterns.
