The Danger of Humanities

Iran's leadership has determined that some majors are more dangerous to them than others:
"The Iranian government says it will restrict the number of students admitted to humanities programs at universities, RFE/RL's Radio Farda reports...

"It follows criticism of humanities studies last year by Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. He called the humanities a field of study that 'promotes skepticism and doubt in religious principles and beliefs,' and that it was worrying that almost two-thirds of university students in Iran were seeking degrees in the humanities."
