Which of the following university courses would you be interested in taking? - pick as many as you like.

Within last 3.5 years of my university education I took 17.5 credits. In addition to that, I will be taking 2.5 more credits next semester and graduating with an HBA in Geography (Honours Bachelor of Arts) with general BA in Classical Studies. I was curious which of the courses I took would you be interested in taking? Most of these courses I took only because they were required. Don't worry about the course codes if you don't know what they mean, and disregard all the prerequisites.

None of these sound like they would keep my attention. Maybe global resources & environment issues. The survey of literature sounds interesting some what.

I have already taken 3 terms of art history- love those Greeks!

None really and especially not any of the "CL' courses. All of my courses were architecture, engineering, construction management and art. I took average of 18 credits every semester.

If I didn't have enough on my plate as it is, I would be pretty interested in a lot of these.

I'd skip the Archaeology because I've studied that before (when I was 16 - 18), and invested a lot of time reading about it as I wanted to be an Archaeologist until I was about 15. A lot of the Classical courses sound interesting, but I had friends who studied similar subjects at university and I heard enough about them to be pretty sure I wouldn't want to do any more than dip into them. The Survey of Literature sounds like it could be an interesting overview, but could also be fairly dry. I'm not all that interested in Geography and the areas that I do find more interesting (population modelling) I did with a different slant in my first degree (and will probably study more in my current degree when I get onto epidemiology). Cartography could be interesting though and I'd like to do some more Climatology (I've done it from a biological perspective - but a more geological perspective would be good). I'd really like to do some Latin - it would help me massively with my medical studies! I also wish that I'd had the opportunity to study Philosophy before - I'm just now starting to find my way with some major philosophers - so I'd definitely take that . I'd also love to take the New Religious Movements as although (perhaps because) I am an atheist, I am fascinated by religious belief and theology.

That's plenty to keep me busy!

These all sound interesting to me! I checked them all! A few of them overlap a little with some courses I took as an undergraduate or graduate student, but most of them don't. It sounds like you took some great classes. Have you decided what you're going to do after you graduate?

Wildlife and Land Resources....maybe.
New Religious Movements...sounds interesting.

Philosophy, new religious movements, urban systems, and almost all (if not all) of the geography ones.

I would be very interested any of the Roman history or the Eygptian one.

New Religious Movements -- Cultural Geography -- Human Geography -- Western Europe -- The Urban Systems -- but I wouldn't want to take them in a school. I'd like to have these and many other educational courses in comprehensive software so as to be able to study in the privacy of my own home. I detest schools.

New Religious Movements sounds like a course I would be interested in along with History of Ancient Rome
and Western Europe sounds like a class I took back in high school Western Europe it was real good

I took Western Europe back in high school in the 70,s they are good classes and study the planets in our solar
system is another good one

I like psychology, sociology, demographics, philosophy, etc. I'm not much into planets, but I like looking at the sky thrugh a telescope. Ancient history doesn't interest me much.

Philosophy sounds interesting and psychology and did you see or hear on the news about all that foamy stuff
washing up to shore looked like bath bubbles or something all brownish looking it was strange whatever that was
and there was lots and lots of that stuff in the ocean

Sounds like it to me Linda , and those Presidential Candidates one he is a Baptist preacher running for President
and another one he is a Minister running for President and yes you guessed it right Linda ?
The Evangelicals are supporting them and giving them the votes
Barack Obama people are going to really vote for him from what I am seeing right now and wow can you
imagine that an African American President ??

I've applied to colleges (I don't know if you know that in Canada there is different between colleges & universities - college diplomas take less time to complete, are cheaper, and the curriculum is more focused, but the approach less academic and certain people look down on them) for Computer Programming. I would like the explore a career in GIS. I went to to look into GIS jobs, and all of them required programming skills. After that, I might go for like a certificate in GIS/spatial modelling or maybe even a Master's, who knows.

I wouldn't mind taking any of these courses again, except: all the art courses (bored me to death and killed my GPA - I took three separate art courses and in all three of them got Cs no matter what I did (although I didn't do all that much), Cultural/Historical geography (the professor was racist again Europeans and the material was boring), Economic Geography, the Urban Systems, and Population Geography (although I did get to sleep during the lectures...).

So far the highlights have been: my first year Latin (professor was amazing), Field Studies (bird course and we did get to go on a three day field trip to Niagara region), Ancient Tragedy, the two stats courses, and GIS.

For my final semester, I am taking Glacial Processes, Introduction to Physical Climatology, Cartography II, Western Europe, and Seminar in Cultural Geography. I am excited about the first four. Seminar in Cultural Geography is a 400 level course, and we must have at least one to graduate. Since it put it off until my last semester, I had to pick between that, Models of Systems (which is so boring that I can't even begin to describe) and Coastal Geomorphology (which is at 8.30am).

Why was the Cultural/Historical Geography professor racist?

I didn't know that about colleges and universities in Canada--it sounds like the British system.

What is GIS? Something involving geography and information systems? What kind of work would that involve doing? Having the skills in computer programming will be valuable regardless, I think.

Oh, I just looked at the list and figured out what GIS is. So what kinds of things would you do in a GIS job? Is there a particular area of GIS that you like?

She was very harsh against Europeans and their conquest of North America. I might be exagerating in calling her 'racist', a more accurate description would be 'overly critical and extremely biased'. I just hated that class and I hate her.
(reply to Enheduanna) posted 5-Jan-2008 4:18pm  
Well, the greatest thing about GIS is that it can be used in any field. It started off mostly for academic purposes and for environmental sciences, but today it can be used in anything. I would like to stay within some sort of science. Whatever is needed, whether it's private or for the government. Looking at retail markets would be fun, too. I would just like to stay as far away from urban planning and urban development because that field is so dry and boring.

I am not particularly interested in mapping just beause it requires so much attention to detail and in the end very few people truly appreciate your work. Remote sensing is always fun, but I imagine there is a lot of work to be done with it.

Environmental science and geology both are very interesting, I think. I hadn't thought about market research and the like, but it makes sense that it would be related. It sounds like you have lots of great options, at any rate.

To save time and my eyes, I will say most or all of them, I love information but alas I am to far along in my life to stop and go back to school (not really that's just an excuse). I especially like the ones on geography and philosophy.
posted 9-Jan-2008 10:26am  
A lot of the courses I've done are similar to these.
posted 31-Jan-2008 8:39pm  
All of the archeology, history, Roman, Greek courses.

I would be interested in taking all of them if I had the time and money.
