Hey everyone, I was looking for some help with course selection in 2nd year. Does anyone have any recommendations for second year electives? I have 1.0 credits to fulfil and would appreciate any advice Im pretty set on taking Micro & Imm 2500 already (unless many suggest otherwise), I just need another 1.0 credit. Im really interested in Physiology 2130 and I feel if I have the time available I can do well in it, but Im not sure if the course load would be too much as I will be a Bio mentor, try to be on Science Student Council, be a club executive, etc. Im also interested in Psych 2075 (sexual psych) or Classics 2200. These are all 1.0 courses. My schedule would be as follows; 1st Sem: Chemistry 2213 (Orgo I) Biochemistry 2280 Micro & Imm 2500 Stats 2244 Physiology 2130 or Classics 2200 (or 2300) or Psych 2075 2nd Sem: Biology 2282 (Cell bio) Biology 2581 (Genetics) Biology 2290 (Methods) Chemistry 2223 (Orgo II) Physiology 2130 or Classics 2200 (or 2300) or Psych 2075 Classics would be great because I could fulfil my degree requirement as well, and I've heard good things. I've also heard bad things as the 2200 final is a full-year cumulative exam while the 2300 final is not. I've also heard they sometimes ask random questions about irrelevant pictures for example. Psychology would also be interesting as I did really well in first year Psych, and all of the exams are non-cumulative. However, I've also heard that sometimes in this course they ask about random statistics and minor details. I've also heard classes can be boring because the slides are mainly graphs and data. Lastly, I've heard that Math 1229 is ridiculously easy and a likely 90+ but I really do not want to have to deal with matrices and vectors again, as well as having to do those tedious weekly assignments and quizzes that take up so much time. Also, if I were to take this course, I'd need to look for another 0.5 credit. Sorry about the long post, but your advice is GREATLY appreciated!
