Classes, classes everywhere
One of the perks of my new position is that I get to take classes for free. Unfortunately, I, the perpetual student, can’t think of any classes I want to take. Part of this is that I’ve just wrapped up my master’s degree, moved across (the rest of) the country, and started a new job (not to mention losing my best friend), so I’m a bit worn out. The other part is that the university where I now work is relatively small, compared with BYU and the U of I, and there just aren’t a lot of classes offered that I’m particularly interested in.
One thing I do want to take is a beginning stats class, because I think it would be helpful for my work and any research I want to pursue. However, I don’t know that I really want to spend three hours a week after work hanging out with whiney undergrads. I might do better to just teach myself from a book or take an independent study class through BYU.
If I wasn’t all tired out and if I could take free classes at BYU, this is what I’d want to take:
Chin 102, 201, etc.
Mus 116R, 160R (organ), 166*
Rus 321, 322 (especially if taught by Grant Maxovich)
VAStu 109, 330R
And maybe also:
ASL 101, 102, etc. (if it didn’t have such a cheesy reputation)
Ling 427, 521, 535 (or maybe I’d just go ahead and start a 2nd master’s)
*Actually, if I’m serous about this, there are independent study organ certification classes I should look into, plus an annual organ workshop. Hmm . . .
