Question 1 about 250 word : Here in Texas, the state legislature requires that each student take History 1301 and 1302. And the TAMUCC Core curriculum requires wide variety of Humanities (fields like History, English, and the languages) courses. However, there’s a good bit of pressure on colleges from lawmakers, students, and parents to keep students focused on courses in their major fields. For example, I often hear from students in fields like engineering or nursing that they don’t feel like our history course will have any value for them.
In conversations like that, I usually point students to articles like this one from The Atlantic, or this one from the Wall Street Journal, or this one particularly for nursing students from the Rutgers U. Nursing program, that describe the value of such courses.
For this discussion, I’d like to hear your thoughts on the value that Humanities courses bring to your degree. Since you aren’t reading primary sources, don’t worry about that type of evidence for this discussion. It will make sense for you to reference some point made by one of the articles as you lay out your ideas.
