My 18W Classes
The start of winter term means the beginning of three new, exciting classes. Whether you are taking a class for your major or to fulfill a graduation requirement, it is important to elect classes where you are interested in the topic. The work for the class will feel less like work, and more like learning. Because many of my friends are taking this winter term off, I have a little extra time to work on homework! This term, I'm taking a class for my major, a class for my minor and a class to fulfill a distributive requirement. Here's an intro to all three of them!
- No. 1
REL 5: Early Christianity – The New Testament
In this lecture style class, we are discussing early Christianity by studying the New Testament. We are reading early philosophers, such as Plato, to give us an understanding of how some people viewed religion at the time of the events in the New Testament. By doing a literary analysis of the New Testament, focusing on the Gospels, we are able to better understand the history of Early Christianity. I chose this class because it helps to fulfill my major and the requirements for the class are mainly papers, which I enjoy writing.
- No. 2
SART 65: Architecture 1
As a Human Centered Design minor, I am interesting in studying architecture and how it pertains to design and planning. Because I need three art credits for my minor, I’ve decided to complete the three-class architecture sequence. In this class, we have several projects that help us develop our design skills. Through these projects, not only do we have the opportunity to work on our drawing and model making, we learn a computer program system that many architects utilize.
- No. 3
ENGL 53.36: Game of Thrones – Re-Imagining Medieval History as an Allegory of the Present
In order to graduate, every Dartmouth student must complete a literature class (better know as a “LIT” distrib). For my LIT distrib, I’ve decided to take a class that focuses on the Game of Thrones series. While LIT classes cover many different topics and genres, I was drawn to this class because of the immense popularity of the show – one I had never watched before this past week. Our homework includes watching the TV series and reading the book the show is based on – a perfect assignment for cold Hanover nights.
