Currently, I am a student at University of British Columbia faculty of Arts. I am majoring in Asian Studies. Asian History is my favorite subject, I always approach it with confidence; because, I find it easy, traces back to my heritage and also it gives an understanding of today’s economy and people.

Unlike math, history courses does no require a student to practice and memorize a lot of formulas; however one must have a good memory to be successful. I do find it hard to memorize things; however I find it even more difficult to put formula in use or translate a question into a mathematical question. Unlike other science courses, history course only have one midterm, one final, one or two research papers: having students under less pressure. I have taken many Asian Studies courses and each course I Received a grade no less then a C+.

I am Chinese; learning about Asian history gives me an understanding about my heritage. In addition, it would eliminate barrier that exist between my parents and I. The students that are in my department will help promote multiculturalism in the future. Canada is a multicultural country taking a course such as Japanese, Indian or Chinese history gives me pride and confidence.

To understand the future one must first understand the past. When I was taking Japanese history courses, I learned how Japan economy became so powerful through the Tokugawa period. If in the future, I want to start my own business in Japan, the Japanese history courses would contribute a lot to my success. In short, history courses are not useless.

In conclusion, in my opinion, either it is American, European or Asian history; all history courses will contribute to one’s future success. I believe that all university must not lack history courses, because it is a subject that will give me (and most people) an understanding of their existence and heritage etc.

This is just a quick once-over edit (I liked your essay a lot):

Currently, I am a student at University of British Columbia faculty of Arts. I am majoring in Asian Studies because Asian History is my favorite subject. In fact, I always approach this topic with confidence because I find it easy since it traces my heritage and also provides me with an improved understanding of today’s economy and people.

Unlike math, history courses do not require a student to practice and memorize a lot of formulas; however, one must have a good memory to be successful. In some cases, I find it difficult to memorize things. Further, I find it even more difficult to accurately translate formulas or word problems into a mathematical question. Unlike other science courses, history courses only have one midterm, one final, one or two research papers; this approach results in many students experiencing inordinate levels of pressure.

To date, I have taken many Asian Studies courses and in each coursel, I received a grade of least a C+. Although I attending university in Canada, I am Chinese; consequently, learning about Asian history provides me with an understanding about my culture and heritage. In addition, these studies help to overcome the barriers that exist between me and my parents. The students that are in my department intend to help promote multiculturalism in the future. Canada is a multicultural country and taking courses such as Japanese, Indian or Chinese history will further provide me with the level of pride in my country and confidence in my personal ability that will help to ensure my success.

To better understand the future, one must first understand the past. When I was taking Japanese history courses, I learned how the Japanese economy became enormously powerful through the Tokugawa period. If, in the future, I want to start my own business in Japan, the Japanese history courses would contribute a lot to my success. In short, history courses are a useful addition to any student's repertoire of knowledge.

In conclusion, in my opinion, whether it is American, European or Asian history, all history courses can contribute to one’s future success. I believe that all universities must ensure they have adequate history courses in place because it is a subject that will give me (and most people) an improved understanding of their existence, culture and heritage.
