Ask Slashdot: CS Degree Without Gen-Ed Requirements?

Davidjbeveridge writes "I'm rapt in getting a CS degree. I've been information technology since I was 13, and like many of us, taught myself. I am conversant with a number of languages, interpret procedural, functional, and object-oriented paradigms; I'm versant with common design patterns and am a decent engineer. I learn quickly. I work 2 jobs and I have a life. I want to get a CS degree from an accredited school (a BS, that is), but I have no interest in wasting any of my darling time taking classes in English, Philosophy, History, Art and the like. While these fields are useful and perhaps enriching, they will not accessory to making me better at my job. Moreover, I attended an admirable high school that covered these fields of study in great detail, and I feel no need or desire to spend more time consideration these things. I want a BS in number cruncher* Science with no general education requirements. Any suggestions?"
