Secondly, let’s talk about why students should take history courses no matter what their field is. It’s known that history is the rationale of all subjects. Every subject, no matter if it is Journalism, Maths, Chinese or something else, has its history. And new studies must be based on previous studies and knowledge which are the most important parts of its history, to make new progress and draw a new conclusion. This is exactly the idea in the case of Journalism. In the colonial era of the U.S., the press played a significant role in pushing the public towards independence and forming a new nation. And when learning from this history, students majoring in Journalism will grasp the power of the press and make full use of it to facilitate democracy.

Admittedly, the professional course for university students to take has already been a heavy task. For instance, some students may need to take three to four different professional courses a week and they do not have time to learn additional knowledge. However, from my own perspective, given the current situation, universities should pay more attention to the design of courses because a lot of professional courses can be combined with historical knowledge.

In a nutshell, I suppose history courses have more positive influence than detrimental ones on students in the university. Thus, university students are highly advised to take history no matter what their field of study is.
