Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, was a college drop out. However, when he dropped out, he decided to take part time classes and only opted for the classes he found interesting. He ended up taking a class on fonts and realized how interesting they are, the science behind it and how they can be used.
Ages later, he incorporated fonts into Macs and so Macs became the first computers to have fonts. And that is the exact reason why this blog that you are reading is much prettier!
Now, you may or may not revolutionize the face of modern computers. But you can still take classes you find interesting and learn something you normally would not have! I try to use my BoKs (Breath of Knowledge) to take such classes and here’s a list of classes I, or my friends have enjoyed.
The Music Of The Beatles
The Beatles inarguably impacted the whole world, be it musically or sociologically. This class examines their groundbreaking production techniques, individual writing styles, and the impact of their music on other musicians and social trends.
Even if you are not a Beatles fan or have not heard of them, this class is a great way to learn about music and how it can affect our world!
Class Code – FAM 2061
This one is not as popular as The Music of the Beatles, but I promise you that this class will teach you about a world you probably have not heard of before. I had only heard of Constructed Languages, or Conlangs in fantasy worlds like Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones.
However, this class taught me a lot more languages and the impact of languages. Throughout the class, you learn about different aspects of languages and how the differ, while working on your own language. And by the end, you have your own constructed language!
This is by far one of my favorite classes at UC!
Class code: ANTH 3075
Astronomy: Stars and Galaxy
Have you ever just looked at a starry night and fell in love with the vastness of our Universe? Of course you have!
This class is exactly what it sounds like and is an intro to this unique world that we are a part of. This class covers the structure and evolution of the universe from the smallest to the largest physicals scales.
Class code: PHYS 1021
There are plenty more classes for you to explore – Greek and Norse Mythologies, History and Culture of Asian and African countries, Harry Potter, and so much more. The only drawback of such fun classes is that I cannot possibly take all of them, as badly as I want to!
