Tips and Tools

  • Use the LSA Course Guide resources, e.g., key word searches, short descriptions, and syllabi.
  • Balance the courses and seek connections.
  • Consider your learning style. If you prefer large lectures to applied learning in smaller classes, take note.
  • Take a risk. You might learn something cool and unexpected.
  • Every course does NOT have to fit neatly in your master plan.
  • Attend class and assess. To complete 60 upper-level credits you will take 15–20 courses. Don’t waste an opportunity if it fits your schedule. Some of LSA’s best faculty teach before 10 a.m. and after 2 p.m.
  • Seek advice. Your general advisor, the B.G.S. advisors, and faculty whose classes you have enjoyed are human resources.
