+1. I'm a little biased because it's my field, but I loved these classes in undergrad. They certainly make you think twice about normal everyday social interactions. Some people seem to love their 101 Sociology classes, while others completely hated them. Worst comes to worst, you'll at least learn how to bullshit your way through a paper.

Well, he should probably concentrate on "What to do in a rubber room 101."

History and religious studies ARE humanities subjects.

Economics. You takes them.

^^ ahah, I love xkcd.

I'd say that, besides the math I've taken, the C++ class and Formal logic have most shaped the way I think and analyze things; they are pretty great classes. You should also take the time to learn another language. And I know it's required, but Comp II is a must.

History. If you can only take a few, take some on World War II. The perspective you will gain on how impacted so many aspects of your life are from previous events, especially the Wars, can be very eye opening. Remember, a liberal arts college is not a trade school. Use your time there to broaden your mind, rather than focusing solely on your major.

If you plan to own your own small business, the most basic accounting course could prove useful.Doing some of the super-easy book-keeping yourself can save you big bucks on your bill from your accountant at the end of the year.

That, and perhaps the most basic finance class since this teaches you how interest works. Everyone pays it, but astounding numbers of people don't fully comprehend how long they'll be paying it or how much they'll be paying.

I feel basic knowledge on gravity and electricity can be extremely useful in daily life. Gravity is actually very counterintuitive, and I can guarantee that a large majority of folks don't have a clue about how some things in nature really work.

I agree with basic finance and economics class. The idea of a sunk cost is still a mystery to a large percentage of adults.

I agree about formal logic, though I think it can be both eye opening and limiting at the same time.
