In a different point of view, why continue studying something you don't like? Programming is tough, you have to learn C++, coding, scripting, html etc etc. Not everyone can tahan the lectures and have interest in it. If one is born to hate programming, he/she should not be studying it. Yes, it may be useful in the future but how much? why waste 3 years studying on it when you only use 1% of it in your lifetime? If you don't like programming then what do you like? Filming? graphic design? Engineer? You have to start thinking about what you want to do with your life, then go study the relevant course.
If TS is 2nd or 3rd year then he/she should continue since already wasted on 1st year.
