Pro

1. This is an explanation to your position.

2. Humanities does prepare students to succeed in the working world and promotes a good personal life; the Washington Post also suggest there are many constraints such as lack of properly trained talent, lack of risk taking, "given those constraints, it is hard to believe humanities degree programs are the best way to train America"s most talented students."- Washington Post "We don't Need More Humanities major "http://www.washingtonpost.com...

3. According to the Washington Post graduate students in humanities are analytically skilled what students lack is a specified application of ethics or such skills.

C~ We can remove the humanities major and develop more specified houses of humanities major.

Con

1. The removal of the humanities from undergraduate courses would decease a rare breed of people who can write and read well in a economy where this skill is in high demand.
2. The humanities major is important because it teaches students how to describe, evaluate and change the world. Humanities is the liberating way in which this world at a point can be remade. It not on,y gives you a work ethic and good life however gives you the tools to eradicate any issues that come your way.
3. Past graduates have seen rise in their salaries if they are able to use it to their advantage pursuing a career in high demand making them rare.
B- Humanities should stay a major in the undergraduate program.

Con

1. humanities should be kept around because post graduates have seen rises in their salary and this most likely has to do with the demand amongst jobs in the economy.

2. Humanities will forever be important because it teaches students how to describe, evaluate, and change the world and it also puts them in a rare breed of individuals who can speak and also write well.

3. This major not only gives individuals a good work ethic but even more along a good life.
