Major-specific Course Recommendations:

Anyone interested in Public Health, literally any Public Health class! They are great! Also if you are interested in Public Health consider taking health classes outside of the Public Health Department, such as the Medical Anthropology and Sociology of Health and Society.

As for Spanish, SPAN 4040 with Casey Eriksen: It is so much fun and he is a great professor! Also, any Spanish class with Professor Padron is loads of fun! Same with any class taught by Professor Gerli–he is a different teaching style but he is a good professor!

Fun/Easy Course Recommendations:

ASL 1010: American Sign Language with Bobbie: Challenging, but AMAZING class! You learn more about the Deaf community and the unknown culture surrounding Deaf community.

HISA 3121: Women in South Asia with Professor Barnett: Amazing professor and great class! Learn more about women’s role and treatment in South Asia. Relatively easy discussion based class.

AMST/ENAM 3180: Intro to Asian American Studies with Professor Chong: As the name states, it is an intro class to Asian American Studies. Lots of fun with relatively a lot of reading, but watching movies and reading comics also make up a good portion of the class.

COLA 1500: Food and Slavery with Professor Deetz: Not sure if she is teaching this COLA next semester, but it was an amazing class focused on the roles of slaves in American kitchens! Really cool and laid back Professor!
