Description Alternative
The first half of this paper describes the origin of graphic design and its transformation process, based on the history of Western Arts since the end of the 19th century. The second half of the paper, referring to a case study of some higher education institutions, examines contemporary issues, including the present state of education for graphic design, characteristics of its curriculum and major problems. On the basis of the latter, some future challenges for curriculum are discussed in the actual scene of university lifelong learning. At present, graphic design is being merged into web design at high speed. Therefore its curriculum is now requested to include studies of various applications, not only those for acquiring practical skills, but also those for learning its history and theory. Additionally, it is required to heighten students' awareness of humanity as a professional, as well as to enhance their respects for social norms and their sense of value that are served as foundation of their humanities. Our ultimate goal is to develop 'practical curriculum' for graphic design that can be applied to the actual scene of university lifelong learning. This paper hypothetically provides our theoretical framework for this. In general, one of the main objectives in lifelong learning is to meet the needs and levels of a great variety of learners. It is therefore essential for extramural programs in university lifelong learning to hold varieties and flexibilities in its structure. With this assumption, it is intended to examine the theme of the next phase: the development of 'practical curriculum'.
