The college that you go to will tell you which classes you need to take to get your degree. I was a science major and I had to take a LOT of non-science classes to fulfill the requirements for a degree. It has to do with having a well-rounded education. I am glad that I did take those classes.
In the US, nearly all students are required to take a basic curriculum that usually includes some form of History, Math, English and Science as required for the completion of your degree whether your major is in those subjects or not.
I was going to say "of course not, that would a be a silly waste of everyone's time".But it seems that the US is indeed silly and that this is a real thing.Where I live, you only study the classes that are relevant to your major, obviously.There is no such thing as "general ed" here, not even in high school.
In the United States: yeah. Even if you're in something completely non-STEM related, you'll most likely still have to take 1-2 science and/or math classes. It's part of the "liberal" education philosophy that has existed pretty much since the U. S. was founded.
Yeah I’m at university rn and you still gotta. Say you’re a business major, you still have to take a science class as a part of ur GEP/general education classes. You don’t start taking classes for your major until your junior year.
I’m a nursing major and I still have to take a history class
Depends on your university and major. For example at my university music majors didn’t have to but English majors did
Most of the time yes they are general eds.
Depends on your college, but probably
What's your major about?
You might take Math for Liberal Arts rather than something like Engineering Calculus with Analytic Geometry… They want to at least determine that you know how to count on your fingers. Depending on your degree there will be an emphasis in different directions but there will be some sort of general education requirements.
I believe so
