Dean’s Welcome:

On behalf of the College of Science and Technology’s students, faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you. The College is currently composed of three departments, Biology, Computer Science and Mathematics. Please take time to explore further information on these programs by clicking on the links below and also learn about our faculty and their research endeavors. The teachers are scholars who blend instruction and research as reinforcing activities. There are many opportunities for students to become involved in research. At the end of your program of study, you will have earned a high-quality American degree from Kean University. We encourage you during your junior year to spend a semester or year at Kean University in New Jersey, USA. There you will take classes with American students, and experience the culture plus heighten your English skills.

WenZhou Kean University is a place where faculty love their profession and encourage students to excel. Let WKU help you achieve the dream you have always had whether it is becoming a biology research scientist, a game designer, a biostatistician, or theoretical mathematician, let your heart’s desire become reality. Together we will work together to achieve your dream. Become a WKU student and succeed in the world of tomorrow. It will be a decision you will never regret.

College of Liberal Arts

Dean’s Letter:

We Open Minds

“Liberal arts” is the term used most often to describe the dominant approach to higher education in America wherein the aim is to educate the “whole person” and students are expected to gain a deep understanding of a variety of disciplines beyond their major academic focus, as well as an appreciation of how these many disciplines inter-relate. Key to this approach are the “general education” requirements which insure that each student takes a broad range of specific courses as part of their graduation requirements. At Wenzhou-Kean University many of these courses are housed in the College of Liberal Arts. Subjects such as political science, communication, history, economics, philosophy and art history are not yet part of a major (with their own department) at WKU but serve the important function of helping students satisfy this graduation requirement.

—Dean. Raquel A Stuart

The College of Liberal Arts aims to stimulate and develop students’ thought processes and intellectual capabilities, and increase their abilities to consider, compare and communicate within a broad range of disciplines, traditions and world-views. Liberal arts students are inquisitive and insightful, and share a rich cultural understanding of the world in which they live. The majors and various elective courses available in the College promote three elements essential for success in the job market of the 21st Century: creativity, critical thinking and communication. In a world where people change careers an average of five times or more, the adaptability gained through a liberal arts education is invaluable.

Two majors are currently available within the College of Liberal Arts: English in the Global Setting; and Psychology. A third major, Communication with a focus on Public Relations, will be offered soon, as we continue to add programs in the development of the College. Majors in the liberal arts generally allow more free electives than majors in other colleges, so Liberal Arts students have more freedom to choose courses to either specialize within their major or add other areas of specialization. In U.S. higher education, it is very common to pursue a “minor” that complements the major., with both appearing on your transcript at graduation. For instance, a student who wants to go into advertising as a career might do a major in English and a minor in Psychology. Students with major/minor combinations of this sort, designed for a particular career path, are appealing to both employers and graduate schools.
