    Present literature on Ideological and Political Education at the tertiary level focused more on elaborating on its significance rather than its teaching practice. In teaching practice, problems and difficulties exist in designing teaching content, teaching methods, and evaluation systems. This paper took Stylistics, a professional course for postgraduates majoring in Foreign Languages and Literature, as an example to explore the new approach to Ideological and Political Education in professional courses in Higher Education. The characteristics and importance of stylistics were discussed, and the significance of IPE in stylistics was interpreted. Besides, this paper proposed a teaching model with precise contents, effective methods, and an evaluation system, with the hope of providing a beneficial reference for the construction of IPE in courses for professional courses of postgraduate students.
