Staying the courses: The perfect picks for next fall

by Beacon Staff • April 1, 2009

bNutrition and Human Health-SC203/b

iProf. Joanne Keaveney/i

"It was really great because most people at Emerson don't care about science, but we learned about ways to be healthy and to take care of ourselves, which everyone should care about. Joanne was a really good teacher. She knew her stuff. It was one of those four-hour classes but you barely noticed." i-Senior Elizabeth King, Writing, Literature and Publishing/i

bSpecial Topics in Ethics or Value Theory-PH203/b

iProf. Bianca Janssen Groesbeek/i

"My ethics class at Kasteel Well was amazing and the most applicable class in terms of what you stand for and what not. Bianca was so good at facilitating conversation." -iJunior Jennifer Imboden, Communication Sciences and Disorders/i

bDevelopment of the U.S. Welfare State-PL334/b

iProf. Brian Glenn/i

"We have this ongoing group project where we map out the entire welfare system of Boston-it's actually really interesting to see the roots of the U.S. welfare system and how it developed into what it is now. The professor is a really smart guy. He knows what he is talking about and has a great enthusiasm." i-Sophomore Sam Gorelick, Marketing Communication/i

bShock of the Old: Representations and Renaissance Culture-IN403/b

iProf. Robert Dulgarian/i

"At first I thought it would be a boring requirement but I really like the class. We are reading Renaissance, Greek and Roman literature and it's interesting to see how they are related-specifically the ways that Greek and Roman allusions reappear in Renaissance literature. Dulgarian is interesting and the lectures are great throughout." i-Junior Diego Berumen, Print Journalism/i

bIntroduction to Psychology-PS101/b

iProf. Eileen McBride/i

"Eileen is so passionate about psychology that even though I thought it had nothing to do with my major, I loved it and could easily apply it to my everyday life. I loved this class more than any of my major's classes." i-Sophomore Kendra Ryan, Writing, Literature and Publishing/i

bResearch Writing-WR121/b

iProf. Kathleen Gonso/i

"I know it sounds strange, but I liked my Research Writing class. The topic was cool and we got to use a lot of different mediums including graphic novels. Gonso is a grad student but she was nice and energetic. It could have been a boring class but she made it very good." i-Sophomore Alexa McMahon

Print Journalism/i
