Quite frankly, I never want to hear about Aristotle or the history of logic again. Why do I even need to know this stuff? I'm a computer scientist, not a philosopher/historian.
You feel that way now, but this is all important shit dude. Undergraduate degrees require that you have at least a basic knowledge of the surrounding disciplines; whether you ultimately decide to use that knowledge or not is up to you. I had to take two philosophy modules in my final year, and I'm glad I did because it actually helped a lot with my dissertation.
Besides, it's never a bad thing to know about stuff like the history of logic (arguably the most significant aspect of human thought, ever).
