The films and literature are considered so easy to master, and most of the people believe that humanities belong to the weaker students. There is also pressure from the parents and relatives to pursue science related courses. Thus, most of the students are discouraged to major in the humanities. I agree with the research that shows that, the study in humanities has reduced as students are being encouraged to enroll in science related courses.
Humanities provide a platform for one to work and communicate with others. Most of the scientists are unable to communicate their ideas clearly. Scientists only work on coming up with new ideas and forget to communicate and working with others which is a crucial aspect of their lives. Through studying humanities, students develop communication skills and they can clearly articulate their ideas through both spoken and written languages (Frankly 3). They are opened up to the real world because they directly deal with individuals. Additionally, with globalization, in order to succeed in the commerce industry, people have to develop a communication strategy for them to attract a wide audience. Thus, students must learn how to communicate which only happens through enrolling in the humanities and taking them as courses. Additionally, the study of humanities enables the students to identify the future scientific needs of the society. Through the study of history, students understand the impact of the study of science and technology and the impact the technology has on the lives of the people. It shows the negative effects science and technology has on the lives of the people and looks for ways of eliminating the negative impacts.
Subsequently, humanities form a very crucial role in our today’s life. We are living in a society where most of the young people dont know how to relate with one another. Most of the children have abandoned their culture, and they do not know their origin.
