The main purpose of this study was to confirm the educational performance of classical education as one of the major Liberal Arts courses. To this end, surveys were conducted regarding the achievements of classical education and academic interests for students taking the “Reading Famous Writings” course established at the Liberal Arts College of A university. A survey was conducted once at the beginning, and then at the end, of the semester and responses of students who faithfully participated in all of the surveys were used for the final analysis. As a result of the study, we found that the course helped the students to improve in all areas of competency (reading comprehension, communication competence, and creative competence). In addition, we found the course to be helpful in improving the students’ problem-solving efficacy. Furthermore, we confirmed that this course has a significant effect on enhancing the students’ situational interest and personal interest. These results suggest that the “Reading Famous Books” course is being operated effectively to help increase the students’ related competencies, efficacy, and academic interests. Finally, these findings can be said to be significant in that they are the first studies to present educational outcomes of classical education using an objective scale. Limitations of this study, along with required follow-up studies, were also discussed.
Key Words: classical education, competence, self-efficacy for problem solving, academic interest, pre-post analysis
