While the focus of my academia lies in the field of mechanical engineering. all of us are also required to take certain classes in the humanities. Although it may be irritating to have to take classes that don’t relate to your major, these classes are actually an opportunity to take fun classes that you might be interested in.
For example, if you want to learn a language on the side, study history, or something else that you find compelling, these requirements are your chance to do so. Personally, I took PHIL104, or Reasoning and Critical Thinking. We are currently reading Sagan’s “The Demon Haunted World,” which is a fascinating book on scientific literacy in America. And though it adds a bit to my workload, it doesn’t bother me because it is a subject that I am legitimately feel interested in.
So although having required courses that don’t have to do with your major might seem interesting, it makes your college courses more enriching with the added variety (even if PHIL104 makes me write daily journals).
