So theres hardly any difference?
  • Yes and No. Remember, thats what the University
    System of Maryland recommends as the MINIMUM
    courses needed for college. What do you think
    this means?

8
But wait, I want to be a doctor. Why do I need
to take 4 years of English?
  • People who succeed are people who can read and
    write. No matter what you end up doing, it pays
    to be able to speak clearly and write well. You
    should prepare by taking as many classes in
    reading, writing and speaking as you can fit into
    your schedule.

9
I want to be a journalist, so why do I need so
much math science?
  • Learning how things work and studying the world
    around you will help you understand how
    scientific discoveries affect you, your community
    and the world.
  • Everyone uses numbers in the real world to solve
    problems. Math teaches you to think logically and
    abstractly.
