Literary Studies - EN 120: Intro to Film w/ Prof Niemi
I love watching movies and this class allowed me to do just that. Tuesday nights we would screen a film after a brief introduction by the professor. Thursday nights we'd discuss the movie we had seen. The films spanned decades and genres, from Rear Window and Singin' in the Rain to The Big Lebowski.
Scientific Reasoning - BI 110: Effects of Climate Change w/ Prof Hope
As a part of SMC's sustainability club, Green Up, this class made the most sense for me to take. I am normally not much of a science person but Prof Hope made science interesting and I actually enjoyed going to class. For one of our labs we even went snowshoeing on SMC's Gilbrook trail.
Christianity or Philosophy 200 - AR 280: Culture & Society in Medieval Burgundy w/ Profs Kinder and Mahoney
Each summer SMC offers a class that spends three weeks in Burgundy, France, studying the history of medieval Burgundy. We alternated days in class with days for field trips to the abbey in Pontigny that is home to the tomb of St. Edmund, a few days in Dijon, and even a day in Paris. I couldn't imagine a better way to take a class than in France! This class is absolutely one of my favorite things I've done at SMC.
