Since summer is down to three weeks and I know my university schedule, I thought I would share what courses will take over my life, and cause me stress over the upcoming months. I was extremely excited when I thought I had all day classes, that is until a schedule changes happened without notifying the students. So as of now I have two evening courses, while the rest are bright and early at 8:00 am. Hopefully this large gap in between will not be my downfall.
I want to graduate on time next school year, so I was forced to take a max load, of five courses each semester. Since third and fourth year courses are never or rarely offered at the university and I have the option of doing them now or adding an extra year, I chose to do them now. Fingers crossed that I do not have a mental break down or put too much on my plate.
- GEOG-3508-001 Dev World Issues
- GEOG-1202-001 Intro Earth Science
- GEOG-1201-001 Intro Atmos Science
- GEOG-1103-001 Intro Human Geog II
- ACS-3902-050 Database Systems
- GEOG-1202L-070 Lab for Intro Earth Science
- GEOG-1201L-071 Lab for Intro Atmospheric Sci
You may be asking why I have so many geography courses. Well to begin they only offered on Computer Science course and in order to get my minor I need to finish off these courses. If I take an additional geography course next year I will have my BA in Human Geography instead of a minor, but we will see how that pans out. There are two labs, however I know these labs will be a lot better than my computer science ones, and I already know the instructor, so I feel like I will be able to keep up this semester. Hopefully the reading is not extremely heavy.
- ACS-3916-001 Human Comp Interaction
- ACS-3913-001 Software Des & Arch
- ACS-3911-050 Computer Networks
- ACS-3909-001 Adv Internet Programming
- ACS-3901-001 Prince of Proj Mgmt
This semester looks shorter, but it is the same course load. This will be interesting, since I have assignments as usual, but most courses have one group project. In a way I am happier to get a group project over a lab, but on the other hand I am worried about who I will be working with in these projects. In high school I was always the one who was left to do it all. Hopefully I can pair up with some people I know will work.
So that is that. If you have any suggestions about how to handle any of these courses if you have taken them or are interested and want a description let me know in the comments below. Sorry for the shorter post today, I promise next week will be better. My focus at the moment is on completing my portfolio before the end of the week, and I am getting so close. Wish me luck!
