provide the liberal arts education that can help the students to become creative intellectuals, pragmatic experts, and devoted altruists.
Since the World Economic Forum declared the Fourth Industrial Revolution in 2016, many scholars and industry experts have poured out various predictions about the possible future that this revolution may bring. However, in this rapidly changing world, it is an immense challenge for even the leading scholars to accurately predict the future, and it remains uncertain if any of these predictions will be realized. However, what is certain is that we must constantly evolve to adapt to the ever changing world that we live in.
Futurist Alvin Toffler coined the term obsoledge by combining the words obsolete and knowledge. As the world is changing so quickly, a lot of what college students learn becomes obsolete even before they graduate. However, some of what they learn remain valuable throughout their lives. That knowledge pertains to the knowledge of human society and culture — the humanities.
The humanities is ultimately about the understanding of human beings. No matter how the world changes, human nature remains largely unaffected, and we must not forget that the science and technology that change the outlook of the world stems from the human nature. By understanding the human nature, we can understand the reason for the change, cope with it, and lead the change.
The core of liberal arts education is understanding human beings. When we begin to understand what we are, we can communicate with not only with ourselves, but also with our neighbors, the world, and even the nature. This ability to communicate becomes the foundation of which all other knowledge of the world can be built upon. We believe that college education can only be as strong as the strength of its liberal arts education. Daeyang Humanity College is dedicated to excellence in liberal arts education by providing diverse courses in the humanities.
Jean-Jacques Rousseau once said “The purpose of education is to make humans, not machines”. We strive to provide a holistic education that makes students into human beings.
