General Education Faculty

General Education courses are essential parts of all AAS programs at SaigonTech. These courses comprise 35% of the total program credits and include: Fine Arts & Humanities, Mathematics & Natural Science, Social Science & Behavioral Science.

All associate degree programs require completion of one course in the area of Humanities/Fine Arts (from an array of approved options which has included Introduction to Humanities, Dancing, Acting I….), one course in the area of Social/Behavioral Sciences (from an array of approved options which has included Introduction to Sociology, Introduction to Psychology, Principles of Economics) and one course in the area of Natural Science/Mathematics (from an array of approved options which has included College Algebra, Mathematics for Business & Social Sciences, Environmental Science). The scope and timing for scheduling of approved options is based on enrollment patterns and student demand for particular course offerings.

Faculty teaching assignments in all areas of General Education require that instructors hold a minimum of a Master’s Degree in the teaching area or a Master’s Degree in another discipline with completion of 18 graduate semester hours in the teaching area. Exceptions to these minimum academic requirements based on alternative credentialing profiles (i.e., related work experience, publications, awards, technical certifications, demonstrated teaching excellence, etc.) must be justified and documented on an individual basis.

The agreement between SaigonTech and Houston Community College (HCC) allows SaigonTech to educate students consistent with HCC’s curriculum and program design. Stipulated by this agreement, SaigonTech’s students are provided with HCC’s credits and will be conferred the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree from HCC upon successful completion of the AAS program.

The Head of General Education Faculty is Dr. Le Minh Trung.
