some people think that university should not provide theoretical knowledge, but to give practical training benefit to society.
do you agree or disagree. use your own experience and knowledge to support your idea.
Most universities and colleges spend a rather long period in fundamental
theories and elementary courses. But students regard these kinds of
knowledge useless, and pay less attention to them. They suggest school pay
more time for practical training instead of providing theoretical lessons. In
my opinion, however, theoretical knowledge is necessary. And one will
definitely benefit from it.
First, fundamental theories, such as math and physics, are the basis of other
knowledge. To a student who majors in automatic control, the course of
control system is the most practical and useful in the future. But if he isn’t
good at math and circuit, he will hardly be able to understand the principles
and methods of how to control a subject or process. It is just like
constructing a building. How can you imagine a spectacular high-rise without
a firm groundsill? That is, theories and practices are interrelated. We can
ignore neither of them.
Second, theoretical basic knowledge provides not only the knowledge itself,
but also a way that how to learn and research. University is a place for
scientific research and invention. So it is necessary for students to have the
skill of doing research. Seeing from another angle, science and techniques
are exploding so quickly that present skills will soon be out of date. If one
learnt nothing except practical skills, he would also fall behind the society.
But if one could master the method of research, he would be able to refresh
himself continuously with advanced technology.
From all the commentaries above, we can learn the important role of
theoretical knowledge. Although pragmatism is very popular today, we should
pay enough attention to the basis and principles.
Nowhere in the world has the issue of student been so much debated as in
our society. In this competitive society, ability of work and employment
experience have become very important features of ordinary students’ futur
e; therefore, many people think that university should teach students the rea
l knowledge that comes from practice and direct experience. The above point
is certainly wrong; this essay will outline three reasons.
The main reason is that students’ study will be delayed and disadvantaged.
The academic knowledge of students will be hard to make greater progress
in order to practical training and employment experience. In this special
period of life, students have the best memory and intellect. If they do not
work hard at study, they will lose it that could be balanced by neither good
employment experience nor information of outside classroom. If students
choose to carefully study academic knowledge in the university, they would
gain a better future.
Another reason is that current knowledge of students is not enough capable
to face practical training’s requirements. If students are not taught
professional theoretical knowledge, they just depend on the basal academic
knowledge that they studied in the high school. In fact, they are really
difficult to progress real practical training and gain abundant employment
Last but not the least reason is the professional theoretical knowledge that it
is necessary to work of future. For instance, when I graduated from
university, I did not have any employment experience. But, I was hired a
famous network company. I could gain this work chance, only, because of
my professional theoretical knowledge.
In conclusion, the students ought to only study theoretical knowledge in the
university. It is unnecessary to let university that provides plenty of practical
Which kind of courses should universities provide: theoretical knowledge or practical training? Some people prefer the later one and assert that the practical training can benefit our society. Personally, I strongly disagree with their point of view for three reasons.
Among countless factors which influence my propensity, there is a most conspicuous one: practical experience should be accumulated in society, not in universities. I can think of no better illustration than the saying: “society is another kind of university” (Mao Zedong). Literarily, in society people can study practical knowledge as well as studying theoretical knowledge in universities. Besides, campus is full of academic atmosphere, and there is totally different from the circumstance in society. Thus, it is difficult for students to accumulate the real practical experience in campus.
The second aspect relates to the importance of theoretical knowledge. Apparently, it would seem that some academic subjects, such as mathematics or sociology, cannot benefit companies or society directly. In fact, however, they are the basis of practical subjects, such as management or finance. For example, it is almost impossible to talk of economics without mentioning the fundamental roles played by statistics and mathematics.
Furthermore, universities are where theoretical knowledge is handed down from generation to generation. As we know, form Oxford University to Yale University, from Beijing University to MIT, universities congregate a lot of preeminent scholars and professors whose main jobs are the academic research. They are responsible to impart the academic knowledge to the young generation in case of they are faded from our memory.
In summary, from what has been discussed above, we may safely arrive at the conclusion that the theoretical courses are not as obsolete, profitless and unimportant as some people believed. And our universities should be responsible to provide the theoretical knowledge
along with the shinking job market,the young school leavers found its more and more hard to follow the ideal job,therefore ,they place the blame on the universities today,saying that courses offered by universities cant provide them the enough practical training which ensure them a decent job , a chanllenging and promotion position.i dont think that view can hold water.they dont really understand the function of universities in our society.
its impossible that people experience all important events,only by practical training offered by universities.as the speed of which skills is getting obsolete,the new techolology and science is getting unpredictable.the practical training is far from the enough.the theoritical knowlege provide us unlimited additional experience.we not only can trace back the wisdom of anticedents.we also can keep up with the development of society.sure,its the second- hand experience.few of us can live over 100years,but all of us can live many lives by learning anticedents's second- hand experience.
moreover,the university is not teach us how to earn our bread,but make us every monthful sweeter.thats is to say,they can not guarantee our future jobs.but they can help me to add energy,to rich inspire,to increase knowledge.which set us apart from the schools which only vocational trainings.without a solid theoritical knowledge,the latter cant elicit our creativity.
therefore,we should not measure the university only by how many their grauduates get established in society.结尾忘了，由于作文给了别人，以上所有作文都是回忆的，这个结尾大家自己补充。
Most universities and colleges spend a rather long period in fundamental theories and elementary courses. But students regard these kinds of knowledge useless, and pay less attention to them. Thus, some people think that university should not provide theoretical knowledge, but to give practical training benefit to society. As for me, I think this view is reasonable in some aspects.
First of all, the theoretical knowledge just handles problem is an abstract concept. It must combine with real job, can just give play to its efficiency. The theoretical knowledge losing contact with reality is nonsensical. For instance, as everyone knows, with the development of society, Work position more and more need experienced talent, that is to say, they need those people who can combine theoretical knowledge with practice. So, more offering practice training to university students can help them to adapt to the society better.
Secondly, the theoretical knowledge root in practice. Any theory knowledge is obtained from the work of practicing. The universities provide practical training to students, make them understand the theoretical knowledge deeply. Just because of this, more and more universities stipulate that students should participate in social work at least one year in the four years, in order to get practical training.
However, the theoretical knowledge is the quintessence of practice, and it is the important course that we can't ignore too. So, theoretical knowledge and practice have the equal status in our study.
In a word, theory knowledge and practical training are all our required courses. We must study theory knowledge, and then apply it to practice. Just like what a famous sayings said: thoughts can give off brilliant light only when put into actions.
