Opinions needed!

So, while I'm in the middle of this silly summer computer class, I find myself looking towards a second summer class, and also fall classes. I have a few tougher classes ahead of me, such as lab science, microeconomics, and business calculus. But, I also have a few "filler" or "fluff" type classes, which I will pair up with the tougher ones. But, I cannot seem to zero in on what ones would be interesting/fun to take, so I'm asking you what you think?

History:

Ancient, Medival, or Modern?

Humanities:

Speech, Music (Music Appreciation), Communications (Mass Media w/ a lab), Philosophy?

Note: I am tempted to take the Speech one b/c I know it will be the one I'll be most familiar with having gone through a lot of formal speech training in my former life as a banker. That being said, in the interest of becoming more well rounded, I suppose looking at a different course of study would broaden my horizons a bit.


If you have any thoughts, they are most welcome!

Personally, I think I should be given an honorary degree based on the fact that lots of other people who don't deserve them get them.

Case in point: In 2001 George W. Bush received an honorary degree from Yale. Enough said.

I think music appreciation and Modern history would be interesting to take. I agree with you that you deserve an honorary degree. It should be noted that George W Bush did also graduate from Harvard Business School. Bill Clinton, actually a very smart man, also has received hororary degrees. One from University of Michigan and Middlebury College.

Yes, but note the fact that Bill Clinton is actually smart.

I say Modern History and Communications - you can put that new Microsoft Word knowledge to good use!
I don't want to get into a political debate, but do you remember this famous Clinton quote?
"It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is"

I've taken Music Appreciation and that type of Communications class before. I enjoyed them a lot although they were a lot of work (generally anything with a lab is). However, we are complete strangers so I don't really know what you'd like the best. If you're polling seriously, consider those two my votes. LOL! :)

This is a tough call. Music appreciation sounds deceptively easy. That worries me...

Modern history would be interesting and relevant. Anything with a lab should be avoided at all costs when one has a family, kids, and a life to live.
