There would be, of course, a plus side for requiring Philosophy for a CIS degree. One who is versed in the philosophical way of thinking will always ask questions, and perhaps those questions would lead to answers that improve the code somehow.
in reply to For CIS, Math is good, but Philo is better.
in thread (OT) Should math (or adv. math) be required in CIS degrees?
Not to mention the added bonus of improved ethics among coders. If the people with CIS degrees were seen to be very ethical, it might shine a new light on hackers in general, and present a role model for the developing script kiddies out there. (And maybe fewer good coders would go running off to code for the Empire. ;) )
