No classes. [May. 8th, 2001|01:00 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
I'm currently enrolled for 0 credits for next fall.

Help me find classes! I can't think of any that I want to take, and the ones I do want to take have prereqs that I don't have.

I suppose worst case --- I just start taking prereqs so I can eventually take the classes I do want, then I'll be done.


Off to music now. I want to take computer music, but I need either a physics class or more music. Not sure which I'd rather do.

Why do you need physics to do computer music? The only possible tie I can see is that frequencies of sound waves occur in physics... but I don't see why that should make it a prereq when it would take around ten minutes to teach actually in the class.

URI used to have a course based on Dr. Suess books. It was *always* filled because it was such a neat course.

"I will not eat green eggs and ham, sam I am."

Is the ham green?

Green Ham?

In the illustrated book, both the eggs and ham are green.

Prereqs for courses ... sounds like trying to figure out how to get nuclear physics in Civ:CTP :)

Imagine you're playing this strategy game called College: Courses To Pass and figure out how to get the end result you want ...

I took a Intro to Film Analysis class last fall at A&M (FILM 201) - it was work, but it was fun. :) And this semester I'm taking Shakespeare in Film - it counts as an English, but its really not english too much. Quizzes, films to watch (almost all are '90s versions), midterm & final, one paper (2-3 pages over a film), etc... easy class. I don't know where you go to school, but look for a film class! They're generally fun. :)

Class suggestions. . .

Hrm, philosophy classes can be a blast, if you get an interesting one.

Astronomy is a fun one, and counts towards physics credit, usually.

Without seeing a course catalog or knowing more of your interests, I can't suggest much else right now. ;-)

You could always take something random like Jeet Kune Do or Game Theory or some such thing. :D Whenever I come across this problem, I try to pick something that I've had little experience with, but that still sounds like something that'd be cool to explore, even if I end up sucking at it.

I picked Linguistics (Language as a Psychological Process, more specifically) as a random filler course this term, and it's work, but it's also a cool subject, particularly if you're into psych.

Offhand, I'd think that photography might be cool for you, especially with that swanky digital cam that you have. It's something you could have some fun with. :)

Music 400? 401? You could take music 400 summer quarter(term a). Now that I saw it I'm considering it. But it looks pretty basic.

Take a music class (I forgot the course number, but it's about the orchestra). Easy A. No final, only have to go to 2 symphonies and write reports from there.

Or take a Jazz Dance class. No prereq. Easy A also. 90% attendance. 2 papers, each worths 5%. No midterm, no final.

Those 2 classes were my GPA booster when I went to UW.

It's harder then it sounds. Don't knock it 'till you've tried it.

Sometimes you can get a waiver from the instructor for the pre-reqs. I would call up the instructor and ask.

I did this for a few of my classes when I was at UW.
