Literature with a critical bent, something in the studio arts, library skills, an introductory/survey psych or sociology course, and discrete math. I'm serious.

I agree with this wholeheartedly! I took a bunch of East Asian history courses (enough to get a minor in it) in my undergrad and they were among the most important courses that I've ever taken with respect to my understanding of the world.

I think that it's important for developers to be human beings first and programmers second.
