It's time for everyone's favorite game show: "Pick Benji's Classes"! On Monday I go through the first phase of "Tele-bears" which is where I sign up for my first 10.5 units of classes. I don't sign up for all of them to keep it fair for those who haven't had an opportunity to sign up yet. One of the perks of a big public university. So first let me tell you what classes I am taking this semester:
Economics 1: Introduction to Economics
English R1A: Introducing Cultural Studies
Philosophy 4; Knowledge and Its Limits
History of Art 24: Seminar: Looking at Berkeley Buildings
Next semester I need to step it up a little and take some real classes, like that have to do with science. What I have as potential classes for next semester:
Undergrad Business Administration 10: Introduction to Business Administration
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Studies 20AC
Plant and Microbial Biology 40: Secret Life of Plants
Nutritional Science 10
Seems all well and good, but the problem is in those last two, they both fulfill the biological sciences requirement of the college. It would be an incredible waste of time to take them both at the same time, so I need your help in choosing which to take. Here's what I have been thinking and been told. Nutri Sci may be more applicable in life and I could probably learn a lot and since my mom is a health teacher I might have a little bit of an advantage. However this is a popular class and will be quite full. Plant and Microbial Biology is interesting because plants are just so beautiful and there is so much we just don't know about them and I would love to learn. I love visiting botanical gardens, but I am told the subject of plants may be boring and I don't know anyone currently taking this class.
So there we go, I need your help to decide which class to enroll. Also bear in mind that both of these are potential majors since I don't even have one yet. I could possibly see myself do those for the rest of my life.
