Let’s just say, UGH.
I can’t figure out what to take this semester, and for $60,000/yr, I better freaking LOVE my classes. At the very least, I have to feel like I’m learning. Unfortunately, since I exempted a certain number of courses, I have lots of space for electives and there aren’t many electives available. So, what to do?
Right now, I’m debating between a few options. I was looking at a project management course, but it requires a project to design a plan for… and while I’ve led projects, I’ve never managed a significantly large one that has a budget, which is a required aspect of the course. That, combined with the extremely large workload for the course, makes me uncertain about it. I would learn a lot, but I don’t know how I can take it without the right type of project.
If I don’t take that, I can either take global financial systems or policy innovation. The first is a macroeconomics course, essentially. It isn’t exactly in my interest area, but it wouldn’t heart to learn. I’d likely learn a lot from it. The second course has an amazing professor and would be interesting, but it may overlap with a course I take next year. Either way, these two options leave me with 4 courses the first half of the semester, and 6 the second half… which is a heavy load for the last few weeks.
I think I will sit in on the financial one tomorrow and make my decision after that.
