Busted Myth of the Week: Required College Courses Are a Big Waste of Time

There’s a common misconception that required college courses waste your money and time.

Not so. Here’s what Colin S. Diver, President of Reed College, has to say about them:

"The search for truth often leads down unexpected pathways. One who loves knowledge for its own sake needs to be able to follow those pathways, wherever they lead. This requires at least a passing familiarity with the methods and assumptions of the great divisions of academic knowledge: natural science, mathematics, social science, literature, the arts, humane studies. Distribution requirements help to assure that students will gain that familiarity.”

Okay, maybe President Diver has helped convince you that there’s a good reason for completing core college courses in Algebra, English Composition, and the rest. But where are you going to take them?

How about right here at StraighterLine?

Many of our courses cover subjects that are required by colleges across the country – and the credits you earn at StraighterLine can be transferred to the college of your choice through the ACE program.

So look at it this way. StraighterLine lets you expand your horizons and save money at the same time.
