The List

For my own use. This will be edited as I go along.

What I've done is sign up for everything that looks interesting. Obviously it's an impossible workload. So when each one begins, I look at the first week's material and choose whether to continue or not.

Of the courses I dropped, the reason was mostly the professor's style. That is important to me, I have to find the person giving the presentation engaging. They make or break it. With some it's an accent or voice thing, or they say "UM" a lot, which I can't tolerate, or whatever. Other reasons include marking systems, and workload.


Critical Thinking in Global Challenges
The Modern and the Postmodern
Women and the Civil Rights Movement
Introductory Human Physiology
Sustainable Agricultural Land Management

Of the courses I am taking, or have taken, the only one I really didn't enjoy was Introduction to Philosophy.

It's not the topic, because I've now begun another philosophy course (Know Thyself), and I am enjoying that very much. It's not the workload, which is very low. It just wasn't done well, I gained very little from it, and we'll leave it at that. 

The others, so far, are frankly, just amazing.
