What courses are you taking?

Discuss literature (e.g. books, newspapers), educational studies (getting help or opinions on homework or an essay), and philosophy.

Having graduated last year with a B.Sc. in Human Rights and Philosophy I'm currently figuring out what the hell to do with my life and my fascinating (if largely useless) degree.

They offer AP Chinese now in American high schools? 哎,你可有幸运的鸟人!我上高中的时候连一门中文课都没有了,更不要提AP的! :D

Anyway, subject to change as I discuss with my adviser, my fall schedule will be:

Asian Studies-related Capstone Seminar
Behavioural Economics and Game Theory
Neighbourhood and Community Development
GIS (Geographic Information Systems) for Public Policy

Best of all, two classes on Monday, one on Tuesday and one on Wednesday means a three-day week for me! (Functionally, though, it means three days I go to class and the other four I research, research, research and write.)
Some more blood, Chekov. The needle won't hurt, Chekov. Take off your shirt, Chekov. Roll over, Chekov. Breathe deeply, Chekov. Blood sample, Chekov! Marrow sample, Chekov! Skin sample, Chekov! If I live long enough... I'm going to run out of samples.

When I was in high school, they only had French, Spanish, German, Japanese, etc. When I went to Madison High School I studied German; and then when I went to Classical High School I studied Japanese. It was only when I started college at K that I could take Chinese.

I just finished my first year of Sixth Form, and start my final year of pre-University education in September.
In September my courses will be A2 History, Law, Maths, and possibly drama, depending on if I drop the subject to free up more time for the first three.
Following that my subject will be either LLB Law, or LLB Law and Business, after which I may pursue a masters in law (LLM).

Having just finished my first year of A Levels, the subjects I did were
Drama & Theater Studies
History
Maths

For my next year (which begins in September) I plan on continuing with Drama and History and dropping Maths. In it's place my plan is to do A Level Media in the course of one year as opposed to two (doing the work for the two years simultaneously)

After that comes uni, where I'll study a BA in Film Production. Once I have it, I'm not sure what I'll do next, but I doubt I'll be aiming for an MA.

I’ve just finishing a module on Karl Barth and on Philosophy of Religion.

I’m also about to start a module on Augustine's confessions and a 'Humanities in Education' module.

Yeah that’s right I'm think about spending a few years as a teacher before becoming a vicar. A few of you may remember how much I hated school and might almost be as surprised as me that I am that I'm even thinking about going back there.
