人文科学让人专注于大理念而不拘小节

The Humanities Enable You to Focus on Main Ideas instead of Trifle and Unrelated Principles


大学实用专业vs 人文教育

University: Practical Major vs. the Humanities

1.在美国,人民不仅竞争着上大学,而且对专业的选择极其挑剔

In America, People not only compete for the access to universities but also become picky in choosing their majors.

2.许多人都觉得,选专业是找工作的第一步,结果,大学的专业越来越使用,传统的人文教育面临严重的挑战。

Most people hold that a good major is already half way to success in finding a job. As a result, practical disciplines are becoming increasingly popular while the humanities education is facing unprecedentedly crucial challenges.

3.以2005年为例,美国大学最受欢迎的专业竟是会计!

Take year 2005 for example, the hottest discipline is ACCOUNTING in American universities,

4.这体现了美国人上大学的态度越来越实际:上大学就是为了赚大钱

which showed the attitude of Americans towards university tended to be more pragmatic that receiving higher education is to make big money.

5.目前大学本科十大最受欢迎的专业,除了会计排第一外,从第二到第十的热门专业依次为:电力工程、机械工程、商务行政与管理、金融经济、计算机科学、计算机工程、市场推销与经营、化学工程、信息科学与系统。

Besides No.1 the accounting, the current top 10 most popular undergraduate majors in universities ranked from No2.to No.10 are as followed: power engineering、mechanical engineeringbusiness administration and managementbanking and economycomputer sciencecomputer engineeringmarketingchemical engineering and information science and system.

6.一句话,大家不是急着做生意,就是要做工程师,全都脚踏实地。

In a word, they all stand on their feet by either hurrying to launch a business or serving as engineers.

7.相比之下,人文学科“节节败退”。英语专业1971年占学士学位的8%,到2002年跌至4%;历史专业1971年占学士学位的5%,到2005年仅占2%

Comparatively, the humanity is "defeated" time after time. English, for instance, accounted for 8% in 1971 of the undergraduate degree, dropped by 4% in 2002; History, 5%,decrease by only 2%.

1st.修改Comparatively, the humanity is steadily losing ground.English, for instance, accounting for 8% in 1971 of the undergraduate degree, dropped to 4% in 2002; For History, which consisted of 5%,only 2% left in 2005

8.尽管全球化大潮汹涌,外国语言和文学专业在学士学位中所比例,也从1971年的2.4%跌倒2005年的1.2

Despite of the enhancement of globalization, the percentage of foreign languages and literature of undergraduate degree lowered half from 2.4% in 1971 to 1.2% in 2005.

9.有位教授是耶鲁大学美国历史专业出身,亲历这种人文科学的没落,不禁痛心疾首

One professor, studying American history at Yale University beforecould not help feeling grieved and pitiful after experiencing the downfall of the humanities.

10.后来,他采访了许多成功的耶鲁毕业生,发现他们大学本科时,读的不仅是人文学科,而且现在也认为大学的专业奠定了他们日后成功的基础。

Afterwards, he interviewed many successful persons having graduated from Yale and discovered that not only did they choose the humanities, but they think it do lay  a significant foundation on their future success as well.
