The morality cultivation in course instruction is a kind of new teaching idea. Three hundred and two non-English-majored postgraduate freshmen from Yangtze University filled out the questionnaire online on needs analysis of the morality cultivation in English for Academic Purpose (EAP) to non-English-majored postgraduate freshmen. Data collected from 302 questionnaires on needs analysis of the morality cultivation in EAP to non-English-majored postgraduate freshmen were analyzed in this paper. The results in this study showed that: 1) among three hundred and two non-English-majored postgraduate freshmen, 82.11% of them had needs for integrating ideological and political elements into EAP to postgraduate freshmen students; 2) in the learning process of EAP, the subjects had higher needs in listening, speaking, reading, writing and translation, accounting for 89.76%, 79.16%, 87.86%, 90.46% and 91.16%, respectively; 3) postgraduates not only hoped to get teachers’ guidance in language ability, but also expected to get teachers’ positive guidance in the following aspects: ideals and beliefs (248 students), values (265 students), moral integrity (242 students), personality psychology (253 students), aesthetic taste (236 students) and academic integrity (229 students).
