Classes you're taking or would take...

Heading back to school next Monday and I'm taking Trigonometry, Chemistry 2, Art Appreciation, and Cultural Anthropology. The last two classes are simply classes I need for the degree and not part of my focus (Associate of Science degree.)

What classes are you taking this semester and if you are out of school, what classes would you take if you could take a class or two this semester?

If I could take classes? Chemistry and Biology....only cause I'd love to go back and get into Pharmacy school or even med school.
I would simply need the required sciences, but would have to have a refresher of the basic courses.

I like history, especially history that looks at how we became what we are. Perhaps
my all time favorite class was a year long History of Ideas class.

Action Research class as my final requirement for my MA.

What I would take:

Just about any history class
Another chemistry class
Field Geology
Maybe try a marketing course or two

I think a cultural anthropology course would be interesting. Particularly one that focused on Colorado and/or the southwest. I share an office with archeaologists and am always fascintated with their work.

Wildlife or fisheries biology would be my second choice.

I would work to finish my degree... Probably like:

Computer Architecture & Assembly
Computer Science III
Software Engineering Principles
Then either Database Principles or Programming Language Principles

Still have a multicultural course to take.... I tried to take History of the Chicano/a in the Southwest, but only lasted two weeks in the course.

Photography and sewing through the public school board's continuing education program.

A course in wireline log interpretation- taught by someone who can actually teach- would be nice (I took one in university and one through Schlumberger, and both were full of fail).

GIS (Geoographic Information Systems) if I wanted to go back to school for real.

Bartending school could be fun...

It's an awesome class. The minerals sections are a lot of memorizing but if you're up for it, it can be cool to try and identify minerals on a hike or something and the rest of the class is just awesome. There's almost always a field trip involved, too.

I can be good at memorizing if the subject interests me. I loooove rocks and earthworks. Hooray for field trips, too!
