I remember when I registered for my classes the summer before my first-year at Whitman and thinking, “Wow! Four to five classes each semester! I’ll have plenty of time to take all the classes I want to take here!” But little did I know then.
At Whitman, I am fortunate to have taken classes in several disciplines outside of my major (Psychology). I have taken classes in Biology, Chemistry, Dance, Economics, English, Math, Philosophy, Politics, Rhetoric Studies, Sociology, and Theatre! Nevertheless, there are still courses I wish I could have fit in to my time at Whitman and I thought I would share some of them with you
- Human Anatomy and Physiology
- Genes and Genetic Engineering
- Chemistry of Art
- Expository Writing
- International Relations of the Middle East
- Whitman in the Global Food Systems
- Politics and Religion
- Psychology of Aging
- Death and Afterlife
- Buddhist Ethics: Karma and its Consequences
If I had another year at Whitman to take classes simply because they sound intriguing, I would fill my schedule with as many of the above classes as possible! Even though I won’t be able to take any of the classes listed above, I am very happy with the classes that I have taken here over the years and have no regrets!
