ABSTRACT

This study is based on the view that the Korean classical novels have to be regarded as one of the important resources in the general education program of university. The education of the classic has been covered by a university since the medieval of the West, and remained the core of general education in it. Cultivating a critical intellects, the effects of general education using the classics had been already proved for a long time. But there is as ever the problem which is emphasized on the curriculum of general education between the knowledge and the interest of the classics. In terms of contemporary value it is needless to say that the latter must be stressed more than the former. I asserted that the most important thing in the general education program should make students have interest in and be sure of the contemporary value of the classics. When the students in the courses of general education intend to get courage in the face of adversity by reading and learning the classics,the purpose of general education can be accomplish at last.
