Course that you really loved

  1. Nov 15, 2005 #1
    Which is that course that you really loved and enjoyed most.In my case,it is Mechanics of Solids because its really very interesting and its application is very wide and can be very easily seen without much effort.
    The reason why i wanna hear your choice because i have to select an open elective and i would like to go for an very interesting course.
    By the way i am majoring in Computer Science and currently in second year.

    Being of a more artistic bent I personally enjoyed art classes most. I enjoyed photography and developed a liking for sculpture in my ceramics classes.

    I was completely science and math orientated, then I took a short story class and I loved it. it could have been the professor though, he was cool.

    I really enjoyed my Automotive Engineering GCSE, it was brilliant. Spending every Wednesday afternoon either fixing a car, taking one to bits, making exhausts and big tool cabinets, in school! What's that all about?

    I also loved Outdoor Education, I used to get out rock climbing or sailing every Monday morning while all my friends were in Chemistry for 3 hours. Ha.

    E+M was always one of my favorite subjects.

    Two optional classes that I never expected to enjoy but did were: A History of Great Britain, and another class that reviewed the history, customs, and beliefs of five Native American tribes. Funny though, I think the professor for the GB class got a little worked up talking about all of the late night bed hopping behind castle walls. She must have read a lot of diaries... and she did make things interesting. :biggrin:

    algebraic topology taught by Raoul Bott, and freshman honors calculus taught by John Tate. algebraic geometry taught by Allan Mayer. algebra taught by Maurice Auslander.

    I liked exciting courses taught by brilliant people who involve you and give you an insightful way of thinking about the subject.

    Non science courses are fun too because they are so easy and pleasurable, like "novels of growing up" ("Bildungsroman"), plays of Shakespeare, Russian literature of the 19th century, philosophy [but it can be maddeningly imprecise], music, sketching, French lit.

    I haven't had the opportunity because I'm doing a combined course and I don't get many electives, but the Arts department has a course on Pirates, and another on Pornography. Either of those would be fun.

    I've seen a porno called "Pirates"
    double major?
