    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I never thought I would actually enjoy a physical science GE, but I loved it. As a humanities major, it had a perfect blend of the humanities and sciences that wasn't too abstract, but easy to learn.

    Course highlights:

    The course I took was scifi oriented (I think they change up the themes every semester depending on the professor) which I loved. We read a lot of Hugo winning short stories, which were fascinating and fun, and then learned some of the science behind it. Really fun overall.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely take it if you are a humanities student wary about taking a science GE.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you've never had a truly interdisciplinary experience, this is the place the start. The merging of the physical sciences with studies of African culture was fascinating and really makes you think about de-compartmentalizing the different disciplines and ways of thinking.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was definitely the final paper and all the preparation that went into it. All throughout the course we learned how to make inspiring and unexpected connections, and final paper was a very thorough way for me to practice studying and developing my own radical theories under the guidance and encouragement of some brilliant professors.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Believe it or not it's hard to make meaningful connections all on your own. Having your own ideas is great, until you realize how much better it can be to learn and adopt the ideas of anyone you come in contact with. If you're considering this course just know that there's a lot of interaction expected between class members and with professors. In the end it's the best thing for you, though, and it helps you avoid the danger of a single story.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was a very mind-opening course, I loved it. Talking about aliens and physics, as well as what it means to be human, helped me understand who I am and who other people are as well. This was a great foundation class to prepare me for life.

    Course highlights:

    I loved the readings and the short stories, the class discussions every day were the best.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Its a lot of reading. But if you go into it willing to learn, then you will have fun and gain a lot from it. It is thinking in ways you probably have never thought in before.
