Humans are the ones who come up with new and better technology for there use. They invent new technology to make there life easier and faster.

Requiring university students to take a variety of courses outside their major fields of study is the best way to ensure that students become truly educated.rnrnThe statement claims that universities should encourage students to take up variety of courses outside their major field of study for becoming truly educated .As for aquiring more and more knowledge they should take more courses other than their major field. It is true that for aquiring knowledge we should study diversed courses other than our major field to become truly educated. Nevertheless its true that student might not be interested in studying courses other than their major courses which could lead to undesireable consequenses. Attending or learning various courses does not mean that student could get truly educated without deep thinking.rnHowever in my viewpoint the study of various courses could help us gain diversified knowledge other than our major course. As the person with various knowledge could be very much useful than the person having limited knowledge. These different courses would help us in enrich our knowledge through divesified learning as knowledge is more important than the grades which we attain in our exams. Thorough learning is a useful thing which helps us in fruitful results in our life.rn One of my beleif is to become truly educated is we must not limit our self as learning different things would always help us in our life. As in a case my major filed are mechanical and i took literature as the additional subject which not only helped in the exam by preventing me to do grammatical mistakes but i also learnt about prominent writers and their masterpiece in the english field. As here through english literature gave the edge from learning differently and made me much more about my major course.rnAnother reason for my belief is somewhat unrealistic that students sometime wants some change from their major subject it also helps them not to get bored from their major subject so different course could help it out for student in effective learning. As a result by learning the different course would definitely broaden the vision of the student which helps to become truly educated and gain knowledge other than their field.rnOn the contrary the it would not be feasible that student would not like to learn a different subject other than his major subject as some of student just want to get credits by studying proir to exam by burning midnight oil of cane are not refered to as truly educated. If they take up other subjects they are not able to give a suitable time to their major subjects which could loose their marks in their particular subject .As an example the science student has no use of learning history for future as just its not useful for him.rnAt the end i would like to conclude that the students who wish to aquire or learn different knowledge could be benffited by the above statement as they are able to learn certain new different things and gain appropiate knowledge to become truly educated which could be very much helpful for their future.
