ARE UNDERGRADUATE UNIVERSITY PROGRAMS WORTHLESS?

  • I was  was streaming a particular criminal trial on the computer, when a professor, got up on the stand and said that students do not really learn anything in their undergraduate programs. The theory of this comment is that you do not learn anything until you go to graduate school.

    So what we have according to the learned witness on the stand, is that students just memorize everything and then put the information back on paper. Essentially, what we have are students who know nothing but how to be robots of the undergraduate learning process. I was startled by this statement because my courses are developed around teaching students skills that carry over into graduate school in sociology.

    If we want to build strong professionalism through a total educational process, we need to stop these instructors, who think that only one segment of a college education is important.
