I thought I was done with school for a good four months. I was wrong. Apparently, the start date to choose courses for the next year is tomorrow. If I plan to do anything of real value in my life it will come down to the decisions I make tomorrow, which is why I have left it to tonight to decide my future. Thankfully that statement is a lie.
Third year is the first year in the program you are allowed to choose what course you want to take. They only have one required course and the rest are all electives. Here is the best part, unlike other school that make you decide, “I want to be a financial adviser, or a marketer, or an Information Systems Guru and make you sign your life away into that field, Queen’s leaves it open. We are presented with an extraordinarily long and deep list of courses in every field…and we decide what we want. A focus on business strategy with a side of marketing and an accounting class for dessert. I liken it to the mantra at Burger King, “Your Degree, Your Way.”
Sadly, this choice has made it even more difficult by providing too many good looking courses for me to choose from.
Let me know how your own course selections are going. Many of you are probably flipping a coin as I type, between taking Political Science and Sociology.
PS: Go with classics.
