American history- I have taken four American history courses so far and I’ve really enjoyed all of them. I think my favourites so far have been the History of American Popular Culture and American History 1865- present. I don’t think American History is particularly more interesting because I genuinely think all history is really interesting no matter what country it’s about but what really makes me interested in American History is that I’ve never done it before. I had never learnt any American history before so I find it new and exciting compared to some other courses which I kind of already know a bit about.
Country Music– So this is a random elective course I took that I ended up absolutely loving! My professor is really witty and interesting which makes a course that could have been kind of lame super interesting. I have always liked country music but I never though I would learn about it. However, I’m glad I did because turns out there’s a lot to learn! I was also introduced to so many new (technically very old just new to me because I hadn’t heard them before) country songs. Let me know in the comments if you want me to do a post on my favourite country songs I’ve learnt about so far!
Introduction To Sociology- This was the first ever sociology course I took in my first year and honestly it was life changing. It was so eye opening to see the world the way that sociologists do and it really put certain things into place for me. If you are picking your courses for university I would highly recommend taking a Sociology or Women and Gender Studies course at some point.
African History- I took two African History courses so far and I really enjoyed both of them. They were both taught by the same professor who was super nice and a very good professor. I learnt so much about Africa that I am ashamed to say I didn’t know before even though I was born and raised there. I absolutely loved learning about African history and hope to learn more.
Women And Gender Studies- This is the only WGST class I’ve taken and it was really great. Although as a feminist and woman of colour I already knew a lot of what we learnt it was nice to learn about it in more detail as well as discuss it with other like minded people.
