Do you think that college should force everyone to take the required undergrad classes even if that doesn't have anything to do with their intended career path?

I still think basic subjects are necessary even if those are not directly related to the career that we intend to pursue. At least, it can be useful to us in our daily lives. For example, here in the philippines, general psychology may not be relevant in the accounting profession cause basically, accounting deals with numbers. But even if you don't use psychology in your accounting career, you will still be needing that in your everyday interaction with different people. It will help you better understand other people's behavior though you're not an expert on it. Same thing with psychology. It's not everyday that you study the behaviors of people only. There will come a time that you'll be needing your accounting knowledge in some transactions (like paying your taxes). So i really think it is necessary for us to have basic knowledge of everything (if possible) =)

Well, I think that the basic course of the stuff that they're not really gonna use should be required.
