Academic Standpoint:

Studies and teaching of art history and theory should focus on its realistic meaning and value, should have direct influence on the construction of present and future harmonious society, cultivation of humanity spirit and development of healthy cultural undertaking. Its objectives should be purifying human soul, raising human fine sentiment, broadening people’s horizon, and optimizing people’s mind, rather than simply summing up the experience of predecessors, and being satisfied with their theoretical realm with neither innovation nor exploration nor development of the research status quo. We should focus on the present while looking into the future, and relentless innovation is the key to the study on art history and theory.

As an important link of humanities, studies on foreign design and art history and theory have great significance in cultivating cultural quality of Chinese people, improving Chinese comprehensive quality education, improving the humanities, establishing academic image, and promoting comprehensive academic status. The formation of art history and theory major as a complete system needs to keep pace with the times and improve the level research, further enrich research content and improve the education research system.
