Modular degrees seem to be the thing in the UK now as well despite degrees being predefined class-wise when I was at Uni in the later 80s. Back then you used to go to Uni to read a subject and the classes were prescribed by that subject. It still seems strange to me to read about choosing classes and a major/minor but, to be honest, it would have solved a lot of my problems in year two when I discovered that I had signed up to do a subject that I now hated and wanted nothing more to do with. As it was I had to suck it up and graduate (BSc Biochemistry) and then do a conversion MSc (Information Technology). I discovered in my second year at York for the BSc that I could have done BSc Maths there with the A Level grades I had (which is what I had wanted to do since I was about ten) despite being told at the 6th form college that I did the A Levels at that I needed different A Levels to do BSc Maths. Huh.

More flexibility in education is generally a good idea. It would be a lot easier if people wouldn't lie about the options so much.
