Features
The General Education at NTUA is featured by “Multiplicity”, “Interdisciplinarity”, “Integrativeness”, and “Innovativeness” in the spirit of “Refining the foundation of humanities and inspiring the passion for arts”. It aims to incorporate the professions of arts and the five basic attainments as pursued in general education, and fulfill the goal of developing interdisciplinary generalists in arts. Specifically, in addition to the subjects of arts, it attempts to cultivate the humanistic and spiritual innerness, and further inspire the internal enthusiasm for arts and therefore embody it as the energy to create arts, ultimately being able to warm and touch hearts with works of arts.

Goals
The goal of general education is to lead students to gain knowledge in a broad perspective, boosting humanistic attainments and public-mindedness and social consciousness, global perspectiveness, teamwork consciousness, and self-regulated learning, so as to accomplish the goals of life-long learning and serving the public.
