There are many classes a person can take at Wheelock college as electives that are fun and also learn something new in the process. During my sophomore and junior year I would take at least one elective because the classes I wanted to take were full by the time I had to register for my classes. Some were a great experience and others were a nightmare. Since I have to take three electives next semester in ordered to graduate, I would list some of the classes I am thinking of taking.
Here is a list of elective classes that I would recommend to students:
Film and Fiction: This class sounds interesting to take if you like to watch movies and reading. In this class, you read a book, analyze it, then look at the movie, or other films and also analyze it. Afterwards compare both the film and novel and see how they relate to each other. This class, like any other class, can be fun to take but it depends on the professor teaching it. Take this class if you want to experience reading novels and watching films together. I plan to take this class as an elective next semester.
The Idea of Witch in History: Personally, I have taken this class before during my freshman year and it was a great and unique experience. I learned a lot about what the concepts of being classified as a witch were such as believing that a witch can do magic and fly. Learned who were the people being accused as witches. Mostly women were seen as witches who can cast spells in the middle of the night at a forest and become sexual active. At the beginning, taking this class was weird and interesting because it was about being who can be a witch, but by the end of the semester, I learned so much that I wouldn’t mind taking it again. I highly recommend others to take this class to experience and learn about a new topic.
The sixties: Just like the title of the class implies, this is about the sixties. If a person wants to learn more about the sixties or love the events that occurred during that time then this is a class to take. This class sounds like a lot fun and wouldn’t mind taking it. I plan to take this class next semester.
Cognition in the Deaf and Blind: I took this class last semester thinking that it would complete one of my requirements and later found out that it didn’t, so I took it as an elective. I do not regret taking this class because I learned a lot of new things that I didn’t know about the deaf and blind. Before taking this class, I knew very little about the cognition in the deaf and blind, but through out the semester I learned that people who are deaf and blind are capable to do everything we can, but with some limitation. At the end of the semester we had to present our research projects and it was so much fun because I talked about technologies that help facilitate the lives of people who are deaf and blind. I highly recommend others to take this class.
