UWW should become a TWO-YEAR school! (by anon)
The list of classes that the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater makes students take in order to graduate is much to lengthy and a lot of the classes are pretty pointless. For a student such as myself with a major in biology there is no way that I should have to take classes like World of the Arts or Individual and Society. Classes such as these are a waste of my time and there is no point in trying to make students worldlier if they don't necessarily want to be in the first place. When in my career will I be asked what type of psychological therapy is used to treat post traumatic stress? I won't be. Trivial subjects such as these are worthless for most of the students at Whitewater and that is why classes should be limited to the field of knowledge that you will have to call upon once you graduate. I believe that the university makes all of us take these classes to keep us here longer instead of taking just the classes essential to our studies. If we were allowed to take just the classes needed we would be here for half the time and the university would make only half the money they do now. So my proposal is that the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater becomes the first university to rid themselves of these unimportant classes and give the students their bachelor degrees in 2 years instead of 4 or more.
