The winter class schedule was released today, and registration starts on 11/8 (a week from Monday). So I started looking through it.
I knew, going in, that I was taking a pair of linked courses for winter quarter, because [a pair of linked courses] is a requirement for my degree program, and they only offer 4-6 pairs per quarter, and only one of those is ever offered either online or evenings. The one for winter popped up that met a bunch of other requirements too, so I already knew that I was going to take it - I just needed the reg numbers.
First two winter classes:
ENGL 111 (Intro to Lit) and CMST 230 (Small Group Communications), reg numbers 1216 and 1104, M/W 5:30-9:30pm.
And then I needed one more class, which had to be online (because evening classes are either M/W - thus occupied - or T/Th, which would preclude me attending any of my Rainbow or OES events), so I sorted the schedule by online classes and ran down the list. At this point, I have two sets of requirements that I still have to fill.( cut because I ramble and nobody else really cares )
So. The list of possibilities.
-I could take the stats and get it out of the way, because it's offered online. This was my default plan before looking at the class schedule, but I'll keep looking just in case.
-I could take Comp 2; my current Comp 1 instructor is teaching a Comp 2 with a bio-social focus online in winter quarter and I like him well enough.
-I could take World Civilizations; all my social science requirements are filled, but it would still count as an elective, and I do like history.
-General Psychology or Human Sexuality could be moderately interesting classes and fit under electives.
BUT NO. WHAT IS THIS.
Every winter, one of the geology instructors teaches an online course titled simply DINOSAURS. Angels sing and t-rexes roar - I AM TAKING DINOSAURS AS MY THIRD CLASS.
All the other options are available pretty much any quarter, and the DINOSAURS class, being based in the Geology department (GEOL106, reg number 9505), qualifies as the other 5 science credits I need beyond the stats class :)
As a side note to myself, this means that spring should include stats and comp 2.
