Why does it take so long to graduate college with a degree?

One thing I can never understand, is why college takes so long to get through. Especially if you want to get into a good job, some people tend to be stuck in college for years. Why is it that elementary school and high school isn't enough? Why do we need to continue our learning just to find better work?

For courses like computer science for example, you need to take a ton of math and science courses that don't really have anything to do with computer science. Why is that? Why can't we study a subject we want to work in and stick with just that?

That's one thing I didn't like about college. Having to take courses upon courses, and the majority of the courses I took weren't important or really all that needed, at least imo. I needed them to graduate. If I could go back, I would have skipped college and would have just used the internet to learn what I needed.
