From the Washington Post:
In the November 1944 edition of the Journal of Higher Education, Richard Stephen Uhrbrock discusses the attitudes of 60 graduates toward their colleges’ curricula in an article titled “College Courses in Retrospect.” Twenty-six schools are represented, including Cornell, Columbia and Princeton universities; Yale University had the most respondents, 11.
Here is what some graduates, all of whom were unnamed, said about courses they disliked:
Anthropology was “a complete waste of time. . . . I think it would have been a good course back in 1890. By the time 1935 came around it was a little old and out of date.”
