Liberal Arts Education: My Fall Term Classes
To begin, I will discuss my most interesting class, Economics 1 with Dr. Petre. Econ1 is the gateway course for the Economics major. Each week we are responsible for completing problem sets, quizzes, classwork, and discussion boards. I love this class a lot because Dr. Petre makes learning really fun and is very kind and wants everyone to learn! In week 1, I learned about supply and demand and the factors that shift those curves. Also, every week we relate what we learned in class to the real world. For example, we read about food banks and their past struggles with efficiency. As a class, we discussed solutions and delved deeper by asking questions and collaborating with each other.
Finally, my third course is Writing 5: Predatory Communication Maneuvers and Cognitive Traps taught by Professor Kremer. We have done research and wrote about case studies that have famously affected the world. For example, most notably the Elizabeth Holmes Case and the public media. From that case study, I am currently developing an essay that is arguing the importance of educating future generations by offering tuition-free programming in schools to help students be cognizant of the dangers of groupthink. This course has helped me grow as a writer and a thinker by giving me the tools to strengthen my sentence structure, writing style, and claims.
