Sac State Cutting Degree Requirements

From the major Sacramento newspaper:
Sacramento State students may no longer have to take World Civilization or a second semester of writing to graduate. They could pass on the year of foreign language that has been required, as well as take three fewer units of an American history requirement if a committee's current recommendations are approved by the Faculty Senate in the fall.

The plan – albeit tentative – has caused considerable controversy on the Sacramento campus.
This week I've been posting my college courses, by semester, here on this blog. Most of the courses on that list were required courses. Compare these new Sac State requirements to the coursework I took at the Military Academy. Who got the better education? Whose education was more well-rounded?
