General Education Department
(Non-Degree Awarding Department)
At Southern University Bangladesh, we are proud of our wide-ranging General Education course. Students entering the University study Humanities, Science, and Social Sciences as well as Bangladesh Studies and English Language in their first year on top of courses for their specialist subjects.
Each of the three branches, Science, Bangladesh Studies and, lastly, Humanities and Social Sciences earn passing students three (3) credits for thirty hours of face-to-face study with GED faculty. However, outside classes, they can also take advantage of our web-based materials to read the lectures again or listen to audio recordings of them. This will help to improve their English language skills as well.
At Southern University Bangladesh, we believe that all university students should have a broad range of general knowledge and that is just what we aim to give you.
But you might be worried about your computer skills. Don’t be! For those who struggle with IT, we provide a hands-on introduction, where we will introduce you to typing and keyboard skills, emailing, social media, PowerPoint presentations and more. And all of this will be in the University’s state-of-the-art computer labs.
Let’s face it, to get the best jobs, everyone needs to be computer literate and that’s just what we offer you before you even begin classes. But what about English?
You are probably a Bangla medium student who has not had much practice in speaking, listening or writing. Maybe English frightens you and we are sure most of you find it boring and hard. You won’t feel like that with us! Our friendly young staff do not lecture you on grammar but give you the space to speak and develop confidence in your English skills through fun, interactive language classes. We do not repeat boring lessons on grammar that you have already suffered at SSC and HSC level. We get you using the language on paper and in conversation.
So, why don’t you contact us and find out more? We are looking forward to welcoming you to the Southern University Bangladesh family! We are the first department you will be working with. And we know it’s got to interest you and that it’s going to be an honor and adventure for us too!
