As if the university scene wasn’t getting ridiculous enough, here’s something else to add to the pile of madness:

From The College Fix:

George Washington University recently changed its requirements for history majors, removing previously key courses for the stated purpose of giving students more flexibility.

The department eliminated requirements in U.S., North American and European history, as well as the foreign language requirement. Thus, it is possible that a student can major in history at GWU without taking a survey course on United States history.

The fact that this is at the university named after the first U.S. president is more than a little ironic.
