This study analyzes the general education course structure of a private university (referred to as TU) in Taiwan. First of all, this study reviews two popular models for G.E. course structure, the “core curriculum" model and the “distribution requirement" model. The core curriculum model in the past decade has been favored by Taiwan's Ministry of Education. Several Taiwan 's universities were encouraged to adopt this model through government grand. However, after analyzing the G.E. course structure of six universities known for their outstanding G.E. program in Taiwan, this study found that the majority apply a “mixed" model to their own course-structure design. Using the data collected from consulting the experts from other universities and interviewing some teachers and students of TU, and the common features drawn from these six outstanding universities, this study is able to detect the problems from the G.E. course structure ofTU, and thus redesign a new model, a model with the mixture of“core curriculum" and “ distribution requirement".
