Class Registration #4 - Goals and a Plan

  1. Take Global Communications. This is my last MJD requirement aside from Senior Seminar.
  2. Have no classes on Friday. All of the NCAA races take place on Friday and Saturday.
  3. Take interesting classes that allow me to train with the ski team everyday. I still have to take 16 credits to be on track to graduate, so I need to pick 3 interesting class.
The Plan:
  1. Wake up at 6:45 am and make coffee.
  2. Open KnightVision and make sure my classes are in queue. (Check out my post: How to Use KnightVision)
  3. Register for classes promptly at 7 am.  (Tip: When you register, give yourself about 10 seconds before clicking 'Register.' It would be annoying to hit register and see 'Registration is not open.')
  4. Go back to bed for an hour in a state of bliss because I don't have any classes on Monday or Friday! Here is the schedule I want:

No class!


1:10 - 2:40 pm - MJD-205: Global Communications w/ Professor Jon Hyde

In this course we will be mapping-out world communication and the cross-cultural outlines of our so-called "global village." We will take a macro-look at the rise of international communication systems and the development of this thing we call "global culture." We will examine a series of case studies which reflect the ways in which media techniques and technologies-computers, satellites, the news, language, digital imaging, fiber optics-impact national and cultural development among different populations around the world. Finally, we will take a critical look at the future-the future of global mass audiences; issues of inter-and-cross cultural media ethics, privacy, global policy, and intersections between science and science fiction.

2:50 - 4:10 pm - GS-230: Gender Issues in Society

Explores the significance and intelligibility of gender by examining, from an interdisciplinary and global perspective, how gender differentiation is experienced, understood, expressed, valued, and lived out in cultures.

6:30 - 9:20 pm - MJD-210: Photojournalism w/ Adjunct Professor from Champlain College

This digital-based photography course introduces students to the skills, theory and ethics of newspaper, magazine and Web-based photojournalism. Through in-class discussions and hands-on demonstrations, students learn manual camera techniques, and image editing using Photoshop software. Analyses of historical and contemporary photographic work help students apply techniques and theory to create storytelling photographs suitable for publication.


6 - 9 pm - AR-205: Drawing 1: Portraits w/ Professor M. Brandt 

Students will develop skills in mark making, formal visual principles, and abstract thought through assignments that survey different approaches to Drawing.


Repeat Tuesday without Photojournalism


No class!

That's the nice part of college. A flexibility to pick your schedule. You can choose all morning classes or no classes before 10 am. While there is no guarantee in registration, I've been very lucky so far and I hope that keeps up! Now, I am off to Media and American Politics.
