My boyfriend is in computer science, and his greatest fears are his English and Humanities classes. Since I am in Liberal Arts, we often argue about the purpose of what he learns in those courses. He finds them irrelevant and always tries to find a SparkNotes summary of his readings. He would rather spend his time gaining technical knowledge and skills that, in his view, are much more valuable for everyday life.
We are polar opposites when it comes to our academic interests and aims.
