My Dream Schedule
By: Student Worker #1 (and Supervisor #1)
In my last blog I told readers how I was able to register for the course of my dreams: The Rhetoric of Superheroes. This will be the first time I will take a class just for fun (because he’s a freakazoid with two majors, possibly three, that do not allow for a lot of electives.) I think all students, if they have room in their schedule, should take a class just for fun. All classes at UT have academic merit so if a class is interesting to you then it will always be worth your time. Students (and employees with tuition benefits) should make a list of classes that they would like to take one day and strive to take a least a few of them before they graduate.
Here is my list of Dream Classes:
Of course there is the RHE 309K: The Rhetoric of Superheroes (Um, yay?!?).
In my previous blog I discussed how great of a class this is for me.
PED 107D: Beginning Golf
If you want to go far in life, you have to be able to play a little golf. (He’s such a nice young man, really.)
E 321P Shakespeare Through Performance
You get graded to act out scenes from Shakespeare plays. Probably not everyone’s ideal class, but definitely something I would be interested in taking. Honestly, the best way to understand Shakespeare is by performing Shakespeare. (Whatever!)
HIS 343L: History of Russia since 1917
In my personal opinion this is some of the most interesting parts of history in just one class. This class is very appealing to me especially after taking three years of Russian language. (Look at me! Look at me! I speak Russian.)
UGS 303: What Makes the World Intelligible?
How could you not take a class taught by THE Bill Powers (UT President Extraordinaire)? Could you imagine a letter of rec from that guy? Plus I am sure if Bill Powers takes time out of his busy schedule to teach a UGS class it must be incredibly interesting. (Future Namedropper Course)
UGS 303: Sleep, Do We Get Enough of It?
And the answer to that question:
(That gif is sooooo cute!) Well, its about time! Where do I sign up? I am told that this UGS course was fairly easy and students got out of class early pretty regularly, probably to take naps. I will have you know that I am a pro at taking naps so I will surely ace this class. (This is true.)
And finally where would my college career be without a little:
EDP 363: Human Sexuality
This has been a “must take” class for years here at UT. Whenever asked “what elective should I take next semester?” the answer will almost always be Human Sexuality. I highly doubt this class is anything like Coach Carr’s Sex Ed class depicted in the movie Mean Girls so you should not feel extremely uncomfortable while taking this class. (No comment.)
These are my top classes to take here at UT. Comment with your dream class.
