There are many options when it comes to taking classes in college. You can take any kind of class!
Basically, if you can think of a topic you would like to see in a course, it is probably offered at your nearby public university. Do the proper research into classes you wish to take, and you'll be set!
Some people want to enjoy their four or more years in their undergraduate study and take all the free electives they can, both within and outside of their majors. Other students wish to finish their degree quickly to move onto the new step in their career paths.
Both are respectable ways to "do" college.
Both require some planning and articulating in terms of thinking about what you need to do to get there, no matter where there may be.
I have overwhelmingly fallen into the second category of students. I have loved my personal college experience so far, and it is all flying by so quickly. One of the biggest helps that I would recommend to anyone who needs a tip or trick going into college is to research the available summer classes. Do not be afraid to take a course over the summer!
Typically, summer classes are six weeks long, compared to a long 16-week full term course. This does mean that the work load may be heavier; however, summer classes are much more ideal and go by faster for any classes that you may want to complete in a shorter amount of time. This does not take away from your credits, so I have found summer classes to be a great asset and tool to be able to get the credits you want to graduate in a timely and relaxed manner!
While it may not be for everyone, this is one of my tips towards making good use of your time towards college graduation!
