Object-oriented programming is eliminated entirely from the introductory curriculum, because it is both anti-modular and anti-parallel by its very nature, and hence unsuitable for a modern CS curriculum. A proposed new course on object-oriented design methodology will be offered at the sophomore level for those students who wish to study this topic.

Anti-parallel I think I get (not saying I 100% agree, but I think I know what they are getting at), but what do they mean by "anti-modular"?
