Streeters: What course are you most excited for this term?

Returning to campus after Christmas break can be a bleak affair, but sometimes there are courses so exciting it makes coming back seem worth it. The Gateway asked students what winter course they are most excited for and why.

“I’m taking a 400-level music course. It’s all about music culture in Vienna from the late 18th century and that’s exactly what I want to write my thesis on. It’s a small class and a personal atmosphere so I’m excited for that.”

Samantha Johnston — Education III

“My EDEL 305 (language arts in the elementary school) because I like learning about literacy and how you can help kids learn to read and enjoy reading because I’ve always enjoyed it.”

“Probably outdoor education because we get to go kayaking and climbing, so it seems like it’s gonna be a fun time.”

Loveleen Sidhu — Arts II

“I’m most excited for feminism and sexualities because this is a course I’ve been wanting to get into for a long time. I’ve taken several other women’s and gender courses but I feel like this concept is very important to me and it’s important to understand this thoroughly.”

“Just today I had educational policies studies 410 — ethics in law and education. It seems like an exciting way to explore what teaching is going to be like and I have a great prof so far.”

Kaylan Burns — Science IV

“I’m most excited for MICRO 315 which is about biotechnology. We get to learn about how microbes — which are normally associated with disease — are actually helpful for things such as fuel, food, and clothing. I’m excited to see how microbes affect our everyday life.”
