letters | the future of the humanities

No need to slight science grads


CARLO ROTELLA’S implication that those students who major in science and engineering only learn to “fasten this widget to that one like so” insults a lot of people (“Humanities: the practical degree,” Op-ed, June 21). He also ignores that the “practical” humanities degree will leave you in debt for your college loans and with few employment prospects in sight. The “practical” degree leaves you living in your parents’ home, watching the daytime soaps. How fulfilling.
