Comparative Study of Goals of University Civic Moral Education between China & Western Countries



As an important position in the construction of socialist spiritual civilization, colleges and universities shoulder the heavy responsibility of cultivating talents for socialist modernization, and play an indispensable role in cultivating the moral quality of college students, improving their intellectual ability and cultivating aesthetic education. By analyzing the goals of Chinese and Western college students’ civic moral education and comparing their similarities and differences, we can effectively filter and absorb the advanced experience of the West, and draw on advanced and successful experiences from Western countries to provide theoretical support for the promotion of university citizen moral education in China.
