In case you and your son have not read it, Paul Graham's essay on getting a B.A. in philosophy 25 years ago matched my experience perfectly: http://paulgraham.com/philosophy.html Like Paul, I found professional programming relatively easy after surviving those pointless yet demanding classes. Good luck to your son!
