The main attempt for this article is to examine using PBL as teaching method whether approaching effect of general education or not. Further, the author compared PBL before and after teaching with first-hand statistical data to understand the practical results for students. The students’ comprehension ability of three core perspectives of general education, namely “cognitive domain (knowledge), affective domain (attitude) and psychomotor domain (skill)” is also deeply analyzed. By gathering statistics, the article finds out that after using PBL as teaching method in general education, the educational effect is extremely significant (p<0.001). Lastly, the authors indicate that the challenges and problematic PBL as teaching method of general education faced.
