3 Electives You Should Take In College
I've always felt that most Americans are happily encased in their own little bubble. Well, if you take a Cultural Anthropology class, prepare to have that little bubble nudged and hopefully burst. Because honey, it's time you wake up to the way other people live around the world. Taking this class will help you open your eyes in better understanding how and why people around the world live the way they do. It's absolutely fascinating, and I promise you won't regret it! Also, to give you a practical spin, it will help you in communicating and understanding others that are from around the globe.
2. Physical Ed (That's right, PE classes everyone!)
We all know exercise is good, right? Well, it can become a chore if you're not a gym rat who absolutely loves working out. However, take a look at the Physical Activity courses your college may offer. You could try something a little out of the norm such as Zumba, Yoga, or maybe Spinning. It'll force you to set aside a period of time in the day for the activity, and you might discover something you'll stick with for the rest of your life! I know that after taking several such classes, I've found a few that I know I'll be practicing well into my old age. Not to mention, if you're a full time student, it's a good way to schedule in an endorphin release. Working out is such a great stress reliever!
As an Art major, you had to see this one coming. However, I hope that even those who aren't the most artistic in nature could take an art class and learn to appreciate it. It doesn't have to be a painting or drawing class either! Try photography (darkroom photography is the best), printmaking, or ceramics. Also, consider dance or music as well! You never know what just may click. Besides, according to this article, it can help your brain age better. So workout those muscles and your mind this semester!
With Fall semester starting up, I wish all my fellow college-bound peers good luck and a good year!
I hope this list helps and perhaps you'll end up looking into one (or all) of these options.
