Become a truly educated student

Viewed 257 times 2018-2-7 15:29 |System category:News| education

When high school students entered university, they will be required to learn the specific knowledge within four years. That's a quite challenging task because most of them have to take lots of efforts to completely finish all compulsory courses. However, the opposite opinion is that the universities should require students to take optional courses outside their field of study, they hold that the best way to become a truly educated student is to acquire knowledge in different academic fields. I disagree with this statement.

First and foremost, the ultimate goal of high education is to train students as an expert in a particular field, not a generalist. With the development of leading technology, the requirements of each company and position are more complicated. The graduates must be the professional workers and will be the leader in this company. This kind of person will be more popular in the industry. If the students spend a lot of time to learn knowledge in different fields, it costs them extra time and money. Seriously, they can not succeed in the future competition with the peers.

Secondly, the teaching staff are strictly selected from the candidates for the students in each university, we can not make sure the quality of other organizations. Furthermore, the environment is an vital factor for students to become an elite person, we can not assure the quality of the attendees in other places.

Last but not least, we encouraged each student to develop their interests and get more useful knowledge and information, but they need to take most of the time to learn in the campus. Taking courses outside will distract university students to focus on their own major study.

In my personal view, the universities should provide more optional courses for students and give chance for them to prepare for their targeted position in the coming years.
