Abstract

Recently, there has been a growing interest in SW education for non-SW major in order to nurture SW convergence talent. In Korea, it is a tendency to make SW mandatory for basic education to all students regardless of their major, starting with SW-oriented universities. Through a case study of programming lesson, the paper compared differences in academic achievements and difficulties of learning between SW majors and non-majors and between the humanities department and the science department. As a result, although there was no significant difference in academic achievement according to majors, the humanities department had more difficulty in implementing programs such as practices, assignments, and team project. Through the interview, lack of understanding about programming problem itself, lack of relationship with friend or tutor that can help assignments, and difficulty in learning motivation by piecemeal curriculum knowledge alone were the main causes. The results will be expected to propose the direction of SW education for non-SW majors.
