The Idea,Goal and Model of Humanity Education in Universities

GAN Yang  
Humanity education in Chinese universities concerns a transformation in the Chinese undergrad- uate education,from a model of focusing only on specialty education without general education to a model of“specialty education on the basis of general education”.This article first raises 7 problems in the humanity education in Chinese universities,before discussing the historical de- velopment of the general education in the U.S.modern universities in the past century.The ar- ticle points out that the key feature of the U.S.general education is attaching great importance to humanity studies and social sciences,through reading classics in depth by way of small dis- cussion groups.Based on this argument,the author points out that the so-called“Harvard Mod- el”is rather misleading to Chinese universities.The Chinese way of implementing general edu- cation should be to design a small number of highly selected“common core courses”within the limited credits as the first step.Finally,the article emphasizes that the central task of general education in Chinese universities should be to modernize the disrupted cultural tradition since early 20th century,and to“combine the Chinese and Western traditions”.In this way,the Chi- nese university can form a“core courses”tradition,in order to enable the Chinese universities to shoulder the responsibility of rebuilding Chinese civilization.
