Question Description


Summary:

In a paper of three to four pages (1200 words minimum), create an argumentative response to the following statement--you may agree with the statement or disagree with the statement, but in either case, detail and support your decision. You may do research into American higher education, but it isn’t completely necessary.

Agree or Disagree with the following statement using logical supporting claims and examples:

The "Majors" system that was developed at Harvard and other colleges and universities over a century ago is now completely out of date and useless for most college students. Students need real job training today as most industries, businesses, and other ventures and careers simply expect new hires to be ready for jobs on day one.

Colleges like Troy should therefore partner with industries and create job tracks for students to ready them to step into a job after graduation or to step into a graduate/professional school like law, medicine, business, etc.

Who needs a B.A. in 'English' or 'History' if the only thing an HR department wants is evidence that one can do the job listed? Some Tips for Successful Essays:

1. Be sure to go beyond your own thoughts and experiences in this paper—talk to friends, relatives, and class-mates, do some research on the Internet, in newspapers, in books, etc. Be sure to cite all of these sources in correct MLA format—see The Writer's Reference for guidelines.

2. Show both sides of the issue. You MUST have at least one paragraph in which you clearly, fairly, completely, and honestly show the opposing viewpoint. Be especially sure to show strengths in the opposing views. But demonstrate why your position is stronger, overall, than the opposing view.

3. A successful essay will introduce, prove, and support a thesis through a sustained argument that is strong, active, and grammatically and logically sound.

A successful essay will introduce, prove, and support a thesis through a sustained argument that is strong, active, and grammatically and logically sound. Basic Guidelines: • • • • Double space your essay; include your name, the course number and section at the top of the first page. Avoid the use of the second person as it is conversational and too direct. Use the first person to describe your own thoughts, but better to use the third person in most of your analysis. Do not focus on the writing process. Instead of telling your reader what you are going to do, do it. Write in the present tense unless specifically describing past events. How it will be graded: • • • • A failing paper, either a “D” or an “F,” will either be completely off-topic, so short as to be negligible, and/or be so marred by mechanical errors that meaning is lost. Further, the argument may not be grounded in a thesis or else lack examples or explain why the examples given mean for the interpretation. A “C” paper is one that manages to competently convey information to the reader—each part has a logical organization with clear thesis statements, contains coherent and complete sentences, appropriately answers the essay prompt, and does not have so many mechanical flaws that legibility suffers. A “B” paper has all the characteristics of a “C,” and in addition displays effective insights into the essay prompt (possibly acknowledging multiple perspectives on the issues, or making particularly good choices about what material to address), has fewer mechanical flaws, and has an organizational scheme and general tone appropriate to the material. An “A” paper has all the characteristics of a “B,” and in addition displays few or no mechanical flaws, pays attention to appropriateness of word choice and shifting tonality through the essays, displays a command of pacing and sentence variety appropriate to the varied content of the essays, and may display particularly thoughtful insights, of contain stylistic devices which illuminate the material. After you turn the paper in through Canvas, I will grade and return it to you via email as a Word or OpenOffice file. I will make comments throughout the paper to offer guidance on how to improve the paper and your writing in general. If you choose, you may revise the paper once for a new grade—I am a big believer in revision, so I urge you to take advantage of this option. You may have until the end of the term to re-submit any or all of your formal essays for a re-grade. ...

THE MAJORS SYSTEM

The “Majors” System

In the 21st century, there are a lot of adjustments in the market demands that render the
educations systems created years ago ineffective in addressing these needs. Industries,
organizations, and businesses require specific skills in those they hire. It is this new wave of
demand for employees that make the college and university education questionable. Right from
the word go, I would like to ascertain the fact that the education system, especially the “Majors
system” is doing very little when it comes to addressing the emerging needs of the job market on
fresh graduates.
First of all, the “Majors” system that is used in most universities and colleges was
advanced to help bridge the gap between students and the job market by equipping them with the
necessary skills required for their areas of expertise. This system was to mold doctors, engineers,
managers, teachers, and pilots (and all professions that are learned in tertiary institutions) who
will emerge with the standard educational require...
