For most colleges in America, students are required to take a set of “General Education” classes which are supposed to make you a more well-rounded person. For the most part, there’s a huge selection of classes for each category that they want fulfilled. Here’s the issue I face though: my university doesn’t offer art classes for anyone who isn’t an art major. Don’t you think it’s a little silly? You can take basic economics if you’re not an economics major, you can take basic communications classes if you’re not a communications major, you can even take general chemistry without being a chemistry major. Yet they put restrictions on art classes? I find that to be a bit ridiculous. Heck, they even have a bunch of English and theatre classes for nonmajors, and that’s another type of art just like drawing and painting but apparently those are okay for nonmajors to participate in but not this art. And I know other colleges have art classes for nonmajors; I wonder what’s up with my university — anyone else have classes they want to take but are restricted from?
