With Fall course selection quickly approaching, Her Campus Brandeis put together a list of courses they love that are being offered! From graduating seniors talking about past classes to first years saying which classes they think look awesome, we have it all!
Organizational Behavior in Business with Detlev Suderow (BUS 120A)
Professor Suderow is one of a kind. He is well prepared and suited for this class. He has worked in HR for years and developed several business strategies regarding HR practices. Suderow doesn’t have to be teaching this class but he does because he truly loves it. Take this class and you are guaranteed weekly anecdotes and humor from such a lovable guy. The things you learn are valuable in the professional, academic and personal worlds.
Directed Writing: Beginning Screenplay with Marc Weinberg (ENG 79A)
While this class is highly competitive, especially with film and creative writing majors, it is very valuable for any major. Marc understands writing for film and teaches in a fun and engaging way. This class is a lot of writing and reading of other’s work but you will never look at film the same way again.
Exploring Teaching: Elementary and Preschool with Rachel Kramer Theodorou (ED 100A)
This class has to be one of my all time favorites. Rachel really cares about her students and make sure they succeed in the class. She knows a lot about the subject and makes the class fun so the three hour seminar goes by fast. If you like working with kids, you get placed in a classroom for three hours a week! This is a great class to take to see if you want to teach!
Introduction to the Comparative Study of Human Societies with Sarah Lamb (ANTH 1A)
If you are going to take this class, take it with Professor Lamb. She is the sweetest and funniest professor and she really knows her stuff! She is constantly available via e-mail for questions and more than happy to help during office hours! Her lectures are always really interesting and the work is pretty manageable.
Introduction to Digital Photography with Scott Wiener (FA 9A)
This class changed how I looked at photographing and helped me improve in leaps and bounds with the quality of my pictures. Scott is one of the nicest teachers I have had the opportunity to work with and he is constantly willing to help inside or outside of class. While he can be harsh, he wants to help you get better. If you do the work, you will get an A.
Beginning Painting with Susan Lichtman (FA 107A)
I’m really looking forward to concentrating on the basics of color theory and painting techniques because perfecting those skills is extremely beneficial to any and every painter!
Frida Kahlo: Art, Life and Legacy with Gannit Ankori (FA 178B)
I’m excited to learn about Kahlo’s art and how it (and Kahlo, herself) made such an impact in the art world!
Feast and Famine: Food and Social Relations with Emma Ferry (ANTH 20B)
It is an anthropology class that explores how food brings people together in terms of cultural identity. It also examines the ways that eating or not eating bring people together. I took Introduction to the Comparative Study of Human Societies this semester and I’m really excited to take another anthropology class.
Intro to Linguistics with Lotus Goldberg (LING 100A)
Biological Basis of Motivation with TBD (PSYC 15A)
