The standard curriculum of the Academic Credit Bank System was analyzedin association with the major fields of study offered by educational institutions thateducated learners to win a bachelor’s degree in art. The findings of the study wereas follows:The standard curriculum for a bachelor’s degree in art run by the AcademicCredit Bank System of the National Institute for Lifelong Education was designedto focus on pure art of dancing in compliance with the educational systems of dancestudies of four-year universities that were under the umbrella of the Ministry ofEducation. In fact, however, 71 percent of the educational institutions that offeredbachelor-degree courses of art under the academic credit bank system mainlytaught learners who majored in practical dance(jazz dance, belly dance, etc.), streetdance or broadcasting dance that belonged to the genre of the popular arts. Giventhe state of the educational institutions, it could hardly be said that substantial,efficient education was provided. There are some suggestions on how to resolve the problems with art educationof the Academic Credit Bank System of the National Institute for LifelongEducation:AbstractFirst, the Ministry of Education and the National Institute for LifelongEducation should have the right understanding of current cultural environmentscharacterized by coexistence of popular art and pure art, and they also should havean accurate understanding of each genre of dance. Second, an academic educationalsystem that connects dance with various disciplines such as history, social studiesand culture should be built, because practical dance(jazz dance, belly dance, etc.),street dance and broadcasting dance that are taught under the Academic CreditBank System should keep abreast with the shifts of popular culture. Third, every educational institution should share information and make aconcerted effort to let dance learners take useful bachelor-degree courses. Finally, the course description of the standard dance curriculum for a bachelor’sdegree should be analyzed and modified in a constructive manner.
