Sign up for spring
semester is just around the corner and all I can think about is what classes I
want to take. Well, not really.
But I am currently
finishing up my general studies degree here at MC. Having gotten all my
required credits out of the way, all that’s left are electives. Butttt, with MC
offering so many classes (and, of course, my poor decision making skills) I am
lost in a sea of education.
So I have done what
you may have noticed is one of my favorite things--I have compiled a list.
Evolution/Archeology Regular or Honors- AN105 (three credits)
course sounds like a blast. I plan on taking it with Professor Pfanstiehl. I had
her before for AN101 and she was the absolute best. Her readily available pep
talks and power bars always manage to make you feel better.
A World Something: World
Philosophy, World Culture, World Religions, World Music, World Literature
Any “world” class
will have underlying emphasis on globalization—a topic that I find extremely
complex. Taking any one of these classes will help you to become a global
thinker, a necessary step in today’s ever growing world.
Women’s Studies Regular or Honors- WS 101 (three credits)
I’d recommend taking
this class with Professor Mary T. Furgol. She’s a handful but boy is she
entertaining. Plus, just by taking a women’s studies class you can qualify for a
Women’s Studies Scholarship.
A Gym Class: Yoga,
Self defense, Weight Training, Dance, Swimming, Scuba Diving?!
We so often forget to
exercise because of our busy lives. Taking a class just might be the extra push we need to do it.
Plus working out with a larger group of people can sometimes be so much more
inspiring and (don’t you laugh!) fun.
A Human Sexuality
Course (three credits)
We all do it/were
involved in it at some time. Chances are if you are breathing you were the
product of a sexual relationship. Why not take a class on it? There’s a general
Sex Ed. course and one with more of a psychologist’s twist. Is it weird that I think
BI105 (three credits)
Whether you’re a
passionate environmentalist (me) or completely indifferent (my brother), I
recommend you take this class. No matter who you are you will manage to learn
something that will better our world. I have been lucky enough to have already
taken this class so I’m considering Marine Environmental Biology instead. It’s
basically the same thing just focused on the preservation of the oceanic
ecosystem. It can satisfy both your science with lab credits and your regular
Intro to World
Mythology- EN122 (three credits)
If you’re anything
like me you obsess over Gods and Goddesses. From Disney’s Hercules to Gerard
Butler in 300—absolutely any mythical romanticism makes me drool. This class is
a must have.
Pick your poison.
Whether you’re interested in basic fiction, short stories, poetry, or novel
writing, MC has got it all. Let off a little creative steam by taking one of
these classes. Who knows, you might create the next Christian Grey.
Well there you have
it people. I’m a humanities girl so the science classes are scarce. But what do
you think? Can you recommend any professors? Have any classes to add? Drop ‘em
in the comments section below.
P.S. Here’s a link to the school's class catalog. It’s
magical. As magical as...
Tiffany (and Alina)’s Magical Monday Music Selection!
