As the saying goes,” When we look back on history, we can adjust ourselves to better prepare for the future.” Recently, there has been a heated discussion about whether to make history courses a compulsory lesson for university students to take. From my point of view, I think the action isn’t necessary.

The critical part history plays in our cultural life can never be denied. From a country’s history, we can see all the difficulties it overcomes. What civilization has experienced will turn into an invisible power to its further development. However, I still holds the view that the disadvantages outweigh its advantages.

Above all, university students have already learned a lot about history during high school. History is one of the subjects in the national college entering examination. Before we enter a university, we have already had 12 years’ history education. I think it’s enough for common students. Most of students who are truly interested in history will choose history-related majors in university for further study.

Besides, history courses need much remembering work. Before we learn the inside logic associations, which requires a long time of studying, we must spend much time reciting lots of things. For instance, when did Cultural Revolution happen? Why did World War Two break out? It will be annoying for students who already have lots of studying tasks about their major to accomplish. One of my high school classmates chose science as her major in the university mainly due to her doing poor in reciting which resulted in bad scores in Politics and History. She is not alone. There are many people forced to choose science because of the same reason.

In a nutshell, I’m on the side of not making history courses as a compulsory lesson for university students to take.
