This paper adopts the method of combining historical vision and contemporary vision, on the one hand, objectively points out that since the concept of Aesthetic Education was proposed in China in the early 20th century, its connotation has not been arts education in a narrow sense, but has a richer sense of beauty education; On the other hand, based on the present, it explores the implementation paths and development direction of Aesthetic Education in the new era, and points out that Aesthetic Education in colleges and universities should be reformed from the aspects of teaching methods, teaching content, and evaluation mechanisms. Elevate the traditional emphasis on sensory pleasure of Aesthetic Education to a more reflective appreciative Aesthetic Education, so as to create a higher level of Aesthetic Education that integrates faith, culture, creativity, expression and aesthetics.
