The Best Classes You Need to Take at FSU

When it comes to picking classes, it can be hard to meet requirements without taking something you don’t really care about. Of course, sometimes we just have to suck it up and get it done, but most of the time, FSU offers a variety of interesting classes that won’t make you feel like you’re wasting time or money (not that an education ever does). Here’s a list of some of the best and most unique classes at Florida State that you may not have considered before.

MUH 2019 – Modern Popular Music

You can find anything from a class about Ballet and Beyoncé to the Blind Experience.
