Majors Battle

Here are some comparisons between Sociology and Geography tutes:

Sociology people use unecessarily big words to sound smart.
Geography people use normal words, and pictures, and maps.
Sociology people act like they are smarter than everyone else in the room, including the tutor.
Geography people aren’t afraid to make stupid generalisations in front of their peers.
Sociology people are too busy feeling elite towards people that they don’t really make friends with many other people in the class.
Geography people are friends even with the people that they don’t talk to much.
Sociology people try to use illustrate their points, but often their points are so abstract, and they themselves are so confused by what they are saying, that nothing they say actually makes sense.
Geography people can successfully illustrate their points with anything they want to, including movies, experiences in part time jobs or other courses, current events, field trips or The Chaser’s War on Everything.
Sociology tutors are too vague to direct the discussion properly.
Geography tutors make you tea and take you on field trips.
Sociology tutorials finish and you haven’t actually learnt anything new.
Geography tutorials finish and think that maybe you should consider doing honours.

Geography wins the majors battle.

    I disliked Arts for the very reasons you dislike sociology tutorials (incidently, although my first year sociology tutes were like you just described, my second year ones were much better. Maybe everyone had grown up somewhat).

        Lies! Subterfuge! Sociology is the pits! If you wants abstract meaningless shit that everyone tries to look like they understand but even the lecturer really doesnt, then do sociology…

    What a fascinating insight. I have some more to add.

    Sociology students whinge at having to be at uni 10 hours a week.
    Engineering students have around 30 hours a week, but only bother to show up for 10.
    Sociology students frequent organic free-trade coffee shops.
    Engineering students spend all day at the bar drinking beer and playing pool.
    Sociology students pay 70 dollars to go see Evermore at the UniBar.
    Engineering students are still powering through the beers and will have a lot better time for that hard earned coin.
    Sociology students arrive at lectures with cappuccino in hand.
    Engineering students arrive with 2 schooners in the belly, if they show up at all.

    Engineering students win. 😛
