This iReport is part of an assignment:
Left Brain, Right Brain Degrees
We make those distinctions for Master’s and Doctoral Programs. Why not make them at the Undergraduate level? Why should large groups of the population be denied an education because their brains focus on one set of skills while excluding the other? It should be known that while a B.A. or a B.S. indicate a well rounded education with at least a basic understanding of both disciplines, a B.M.S. or a B.W.V. Degree indicates an individual has been educated exclusively in one discipline or the other. If I had been able to skip Math and Science courses while taking English, History, Psychology and a thousand other courses that do not require Math and Science, I would have multiple PhDs by now. Thousands of Verbally challenged Mathematicians and Scientists could now be making significant advances in our Nation if only they could have skipped English Comp and History courses.
Let those with ambidextrous brains continue in their current programs but let us stop the unreasonable prejudice against those with distinctly left or right sided brains. The current programs are denying an education to a significant percentage of the population and robbing our Nation of some very talented people.
