What courses are you taking?

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

Principles of Accounting I, with II to follow after my vacation.

This course is endangering my 4.0 GPA... I haven't had a real bump in the road but with three weeks left I'm trying to escape pass with an A.

I have a few more business objective courses before I get to the human resources courses. I wish that I took some of these business courses when I went to school the first time for graphic design.

I'm feeling a bit older than I used to when I looked through some of these pages. Anyways,

Classes I have taken:
World History and Civilization Before 1500 AD
World History and Civilization After 1500 AD
English Composition I
English Composition II
Introduction into Sociology
Math Modelling and Statistics
Ethics
Age of Dinosaurs
Honors Seminar: Latin American History and Literature

Courses I am taking:
Mythology
Creative Writing
Mandarin I
Honors Seminar: Asian Literature and Social Psychology

Courses I will be taking in the fall:
General Biology
Cultural Anthropology
American Government
Honors Seminar: World Cultures

Courses I will take come next spring:
General Chemistry
Islam or an Honors Seminar
Atmospheric Composition
Mandarin II

As you can see, I'm all over the place; haven taken core classes that are required of me and things that piqued my interest. Surprisingly enough everything here is under my core studies group: Global Studies Concentration. Then I will go on to a more prestigious university to do significantly more focused work in order to achieve my desired major.

Just finished two accounting courses, not fun at all. I still have my 4.0 GPA and was just happy to escape.

Current course is Business Research. It deals a lot with marketing and statistics.

Anyone here doing any online courses?

I just finished one on machine learning yesterday. I found the content to be both interesting and useful, and the teaching was far superior to any I had back in my physical university. The automated feedback on coursework was also very helpful.

I'll do another one later on in the year, although I haven't decided on the subject yet.

My courses are online. I honestly wouldn't have time for courses at the site because of my work schedule and family life.

I'm currently in an Organizational Development course, and it looks like it will be my first real test on the academic level in quite some time... The accounting courses were annoying, rather than challenging because I'm not interested in the finance bracket.
