So pit, how are you finding your classes this year?

Title.

I'm finding them okay.

Notation and Editing is a drag.
Minimalism and the Renaissance madrigal are typical musicology classes.
I'm really enjoying songwriting.

I also have to do a 12,000 word dissertation/thesis as well, but there isn't really classes for that.

What about you, pit?

Econ sucks.
Accounting sucks, though a bit less.
Calculus sucks.
Java is fun.

Marketing research is boring.
Innovations in marketing is also boring and my prof has ADD, so it's difficult to stay on topic.
Intro to visual communications is also a drag.
Global marketing in slightly interesting.
Intercultural communications is interesting.

Conducting - average, kind of gay
20th Century Music - my professor's a dick bag
Ethnomusicology - oh shit I just remember I have an assignment I need to start, other than that good
Choir - worst fucking 2 hours of my life
Composition Seminar - pretty chill, good times were had by all
Lessons - going fairly well, although the piece I'm writing write now is giving me fits
Computer Science 2 - what a fucking terrible idea that was

Boring as feck so far. Only two weeks into my first year though so we're just doing stuff I already know so that everyone's on a decent level to get started on.

Same old, same old. Still failing the only class that decides whether I pass the year or not. Everything else is peace o' cake.

Harder than the bsc, with a lot of "oh ofcourse" moments when seeing the actual answers to the assignments.

Awesome. I'm doing 2 courses (3rd year History degree): Return to the Viking Homelands and American 20th Century Foreign Policy. Both are very interesting, and I'm only in 6 hours a week

Basic Math: We spend the whole class doing our homework with the teacher. He teaches us how to do our homework then we do it. There's really no note taking or actual teaching but it's not hard.

History of Theatre: Can be boring but the professor tries to make it interesting and sometimes it is.

Intro to Environmental Science: Since it's my major I find it interesting, however the class is in lecture style and a lot of people end up falling asleep. I like it though.

Readings in Humanities: Teacher's funny, she's like 60 years old and a south park fan. She speaks French and sang the French Canada song from that Christmas in Canada episode of south park.

Overall I'd give my classes this semester 8/10

Easy yet infuriating.

Currently doing an apprenticeship, so studying for a NVQ Level 2 alongside working full time. Answering questions like "What is diversity" and "Explain the purpose and benefits of adapting to change" and "Explain reasons for knowing the purpose of communication." I want to slap whoever thought up these dreary and repeating questions.

Apparently my problem is that I consider the questions beneath me. Which considering the NVQ is equivalent to a GCSE when I have 10 GCSEs A*-B, 4 A-levels and have studied at university, I think I'm fair in being disdainful of the coursework.

Hard as hell, I'm taking one of the hardest undergrad physics classes at my university plus I have a 17 credit hour schedule all full of difficult classes I'm just happy I'm naturally adept at Engineering and Calculus or I'd be dead.

I've also had tests for the past 5 weeks, including 3 this week. I got 2 tests per week for the next 2 weeks, and then another test the week after those. It's very stressful and I have hardly any freetime...

Pretty easy so far, fun though.
Music Theory I, Ear Training I, Keyboard I....easiest classes on earth. Should've took higher level classes.
Writing & Research, pretty boring and long. 2 hours of just chatting takes a very long time
History of American Popular Music is a 3 hour class, and i don't know enough about the 1920's i've discovered.
I'm typing this in Music Industry Economics while we're watching a talk with John Mayer talking about the music business. Pretty interesting, aka i love this class.
And Choir, witch is fantastic.
