Wisconsin Lutheran College axed the teaching of political science. With a department of only two, it made more sense to eliminate one department than to half several departments. Political scientists are outraged, claiming that if any department should go, why not one that doesn't teach civic responsibility? Like maybe sociology? Here's the article.
If this is going to happen more and more, what disciplines can we do without? Should college near each other share these responsibilities? Should colleges that accept federal money have to provide a full curriculum?
Last week I asked what course was most valuable. Now I'm asking, what could you have done without?
My answer: a college course in how to use a library. No, I'm not kidding.
