ABSTRACT

This paper is aimed at finding ways to improve liberal arts education at universities that can meet the demands of the industry in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. It emphasizes the necessity of cooperation rather than competition to cope with the trend of the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and suggests that the education of universities should also aim to educate creative competence based on cooperation. To demonstrate this, this paper reviewed existing competency indicators through gathering the opinions of corporate and educational experts, and reaffirmed the results of the review through the survey of the corporate demands. Corporations preparing for the Fourth Industrial Revolution also place emphasis on abilities based on cooperation. In order to help cultivate these abilities, universities should be equipped with an educational area where various expertises can be converged and harmonized. The center of this area is liberal arts education. In this sense, liberal arts education at universities should be understood as a platform for expanding knowledge that could incorporate various contents of professional knowledge, and the improvement of liberal arts education should be the top priority concern of the educational development plan.
