Essay question

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?

University students should be required to take history course no matter what field they study.

Words and expressions

Splendid history  璀璨的历史

Access to college  进入大学

Sample answer

In this day and age, university students are expected to be elites in all fields they are able to reach by the so-called social trend, regardless of their own wills and abilities. Recently, whether these students should be asked to put their efforts on history curriculums which even have nothing to do with their majority has become a heated debate. From my perspective, I hold the standpoint that it is of no necessity for university students to take history courses.

First of all, university is a place where makes people professional in their fields, instead of teaching them how to view and experience the whole world in a historical way. In most of countries, history is being taught as a required course for many years before university, providing junior and senior students enough basic knowledge on history. Consider China. With thousands of years’ splendid history, students are taking courses to know their country better from primary school to high school. So there’s no need to repeat the same thing and content once again when they step into universities, unless history is the very studying field of them.

Secondly, it is known to all that extra courses are surely to charge extra tuitions. Apparently, requiring students to take extra history courses will increase the financial burdens of some lower-income families. From the data conducted by the WRO (World Research Organization), there are more than 18% young people away from the access to college only because of poverty. What we actually should focus on is how to lower this astonishing number, instead of charging more money by forcing university students to take extra history courses.

What’s more, we’re all taught that interests are the best teachers. For university students, they already choose the fields they are interested in, they also have the rights to choose other courses they are willing to study. Forcing them to take history courses and will not only increase their study pressure, taking up more time which they should have spent on their professional courses, but will gradually decrease their curiosity of the modern society as well since they always focus on the past. A man lacking of creation and imagination is horrible.

To conclude, I’m not for the point that we should require college students to take history curriculums. It is not only money-consuming, but also of little significance. We can obtain history knowledge by reading relevant books in our leisure time. So requiring college students to take history class is no longer a wise choice.
