ABSTRACT

Recently many researchers are interested in the college curriculum and college writing. The college curriculum consists of specialities and liberal arts. College writing is important for college life because it is a close relative of the knowledge production and distribution. So many scholars point out the important of scientific composition. But the status of college writing has not been established because the history of colleges are short. So, I will focus on the history of college curriculum and college writing. In 1949, the Korean government proclaimed the law of education, which contained the college curriculum. This curriculum consists of specialities and liberal arts, but I couldn't find the subject of college writing in this curriculum. In the period of establishment and expansion of the college, college writing contained the subject of Korean language. This subject consisted of three domains:classical literature, modern literature and Korean grammar. In these times, college writing meant the construction of a sentence and composition method of papers. In the 1980's, the new understanding emerged that college writing was closely related with scientific or academic life. And to conclude, the status of college writing is related with academic research and scientific ideas.
