Was it the subject matter....the professor? Both? Was it intellectually challenging, something offbeat, something athletic, something fun? What courses, outside of your major, have you enjoyed most?
Completely outside of my major, I really enjoyed history classes - I took 2 African American History classes, and then a 20th Century US History class that had only 4 students and was just an inspiring learning process. Small classes FTW!
You still can, once the current situation improves - at least, I hope you have some classes available? If so, go for it!I’m totally uneducated but I’ve always wanted to study folklore/fairytales/religion. The school I went to didn’t study or even mention mythology because it’s not biblical. There was no art either - I think I might have had fun with some basic art classes.
when I first moved to Seattle, I attended a lecture with my friend who was a student at UW. It was in a ginormous hall and she said there were 800 students in that class alone. That broke me. My whole college had around 500 students!I went to a state university, and only once can I recall ever being in a class of 10 kids or less. That was a freshman writing seminar or something.
"Small" classes at our school were 50-60 kids.

I read James Michener's Hawaii ages ago so I was aware of the diversity. The course sounds fascinating."Cultures & Religions of the Hawaiian Islands." While one of the reasons why the course was so wonderful is obvious (it was on location), I also found the subject fascinating. I remember my professors (there were two -- it was a tag team effort) telling me the final paper I submitted on the course was their favorite because they could tell I had fallen in love with the subject matter and wasn't just there for the month-long Hawaiian vacation, unlike most of my classmates. LOL. What many people may not realize is how culturally diverse Hawaii really is. That class did not bring me to change my major (English lit), but it has stuck with me, and I actually graduated quite a long time ago.
