There are much contraversy over the issue.Some people claim that one should take courses in a variety of disciplicnes,while others insist that one should enroll only in those courses which make him/her easy to find job.In my point of view, I think students should take diverse courses as well as concentrate on courses which are of their interest based,not those courses that will help them for jobs.
To begin with,it is of necessity for us students to take courses in a variety of disciplines.That the students whose courses is of diversity make themselves consider the problem produced or express their viewes toward important issue is more deeply and widely than that of the ones who enroll courses related together tighly which may be internally coherent from a narrow angle but may be fallacious or irrelevant within the framework of a broader perspective.Let us get down to concrete examples.When considering fesibility of a certain research new to everyone,the students whose knowledge is monotonous may draw the conclusion whether the research can be done or not only within the framework of whether the fund is sufficient,whether the technology is mature,and whether it will be profitable while the ones received a number of knowledge from differents of disciplines can make a judgement from the ecological balance,people health,and whole countrys technology level.
Based on the widely knowledge,students can choose disciplines of concentration or more complexity and profundity according to ones interest.Only through this,can students make rapid progress or a remarkable achievement in a certain discipline because of the interest and reflect the problem with broader perspective.As a saying goes,interest is the best teacher. Without interest,any work is boring and you cannot count on one can succeed in a field in which he/she is not interested and the scarcity of interest can cause your disappearance of creativity too.
But it is worng to think that students should enroll the courses relevant to the good chance of finding job.Although our society is work-oriented,we should make such a judgement that the courses should be work-oriented too.It is well known that our college education usually last four years.Can the job relevant to the discipline we study is still easy to find after your four-year education?the answer is negative because of the increasingly work-oriented society.what we should do is to learn the knowledge which can be used freely in different of jobs.
In sum,without a variety of disciplines,students cannot receive widely knowledge and without interest,we can make rapid progress in the discipline which needs more deeply knowledge at the same time discard the idea that one enrolls his/her work-oriented courses.
