I'll keep that in mind! I'm stoked, especially since the class is with a professor that I really like.

Sounds like an awesome class!

Because I'm a supernerd, I watched this UofT professor's lecture on Plath's Ariel before I went to bed last night:

Officially:
Intro to English Literature for English Majors (yeah...what?)
Intermediate Interdisciplinary Writing for the Humanities (also...what?)
English Language Study (which I might switch to Syntax I)

They won't let me take a fourth class because it would be over 19 credits and they refuse to allow you to take more than 19 your first quarter... But I was going to take a language, which is required of me to graduate.
I was taking 25 when I was sixteen. I am one bitter belle.

I recently decided to return to school and study computer science. I think I made a good choice but I'm worried about the statistics class and future discreet math class I need. My courses this fall are,

JavaScript
Visual Design for Electronic Media
Dynamic Media I
Database Concepts
Statistics

My undergrad CS degree didn't require Statistics but I took a grad level, math based Statistics course recently. It wasn't bad and it seems that statistics get a lot of hype. I also really liked discrete math for some reason.

It also looks like your program is web focused? When I was in school, we were still doing Pascal/C/C++. I'm old :)

Barring any minor disasters, it looks like this will be the schedule for my first semester of graduate school:

History and Organization of Museums, Monday 4:10-6:55

Major museology facets, including analysis of diverse museums, career options, ethics, laws, funding, and literature. Museum operation and community-museum relationships through on-site observations, interviews, and research.

SOUNDS LIKE FIELD WORK. Yikes, I hate talking to people.

Archaeology of the Far East, Tuesday/Thursday 9:35-10:50

An anthropological/archaeological examination of the development of human culture in eastern Asia. Archaeological data and interpretation of the Asian Paleolithic, Neolithic, and the foundation of Asian cultures as civilizations.

Nice and early, as such will provide much fodder for Twitter complaining. See also: my throbbing anthropology boner.

Cultural Heritage Preservation, Tuesday 12:35-3:20

Archaeological and architectural conservation: history of U.S. legislation and implementation, international organizations, major national and international projects, philosophy of preservation strategies, conservation ethic.

This is my focus area and so: EXCITEMENT.

Archives Management and Preservation, To Be Arranged

History, principles, methodologies, and practical administration of non-electronic archives (original documents, maps, photographic materials, manuscripts, diaries, albums, government records); practical, hands-on experience with preservation methods.

We’re going to be repairing Civil War-era photo albums. I KNOW, I KNOW, I CAN’T WAIT EITHER.

Museum Conservation and Restoration, To Be Arranged

Theory and practice in museum conservation and restoration, using the Sutro Egyptian and permanent collections. Analysis of museum artifacts.

I’M GOING TO BE TOUCHING SOME GODDAMN MUMMIES. With gloves on.

Ha, me too. I took Pascal in high school and one C class in college. I've been out of school for a hundred years now, but I hate my job and want to go back! But yeah, I feel old.

So maybe... Java? I want to test out comp sci / programming again to see if I still like it, but I'm not really sure where to start.

In my last year of college, I did some Java things but this was when Java was still quite horrid, I've heard that it has improved a lot and schools seem to be use it as the preferred learning language. I say go for it. I actually prefer scripting languages such as Perl but Ruby seems to be gaining popularity in that arena.

I work full-time and do my Masters part-time, so I only have one topic this semester. Next week I start 'Social Impact Studies in the Project Cycle'. It's about conducting social impact assessments for community development programs. Apparently it's pretty practical and case study-based, which should be cool since last semester's topic was so theoretical.

I'm going to law school for the first time this fall... taking torts, contracts, civil procedure I, and a legal writing class that I forget the exact name of. Already have the bachelors in political science, which I got a year ago (I took a year off to take the lsat - no time between work and school). I'm very excited, but that doesn't mean I don't have my worries, which is natural with anything new I suppose. I often wonder how much sleep I'm really going to get. Anyone else going to law school or practicing law?

Your classes sound awesome (especially repairing Civil War photos). Where are you doing your grad program?

I'm finally going back to school after an almost 10-year break. When I was previously in school, I registered as a special undergrad, and kindof just took whatever I wanted to along with a few prerequisites. Then I discovered life and decided not to waste my time and money on classes when I knew I wasn't going to be able to dedicate to them. So now, years older and much wiser, I'm going back! And am so excited!

Even the basic classes have me excited. I'm going for English, but am trying to get all the random stuff out of the way. And, as long as I can keep it up, I'm going to take as many classes as I can. Hopefully I'll be done with non-major-related stuff in a year.

Modern American Literature (found my notes from the first class in this sequence; typed up before the lecture with little handwritten notes where the prof mentioned something I hadn't already covered. Good grief.)
Sociology
French (re-taking the last class I took before leaving, since I haven't used French in almost a decade)
Political Science (online, where people won't be able to hear my eyes rolling all the time)
Speech

Congrats Crowderpea! I did the same thing, and I gotta say you'll probably love school a lot more being older and wiser than if you had stayed <3

Oh yeah, I got to register and had to change somethings up. Mandarin, Religion And Disney, Feminist Theories, Texts and Histories, and Introduction to Islam.

I'm doing Intro to Linguistics as an independent study using the MIT OpenCourseware curriculum! There are so many classes I want to take, but I'm going to start with just the one for now.
