    Russian V3223: Magical Mystery Tour Legacy

  2. what?  

    we have landscape design classes?

    • Yeah.

      I believe they are a part of a Continuing Education program which is sometimes advertised in newspapers with a picture of a manicured bush. I'm quite certain that you wouldn't find them in the Columbia College bulletin, though.

    the telenovelas class? awesome.

    i took it last semester. you watch the german version of "ugly betty" and then film your own incredibly silly telenovela in german.

    i'm not sure it qualifies as "literature", though...

  8. A senior  

    This makes me sad! :-(

  9. must-take classes at columbia?  

    such as "history of the city of new york."

    or professors to recommend? such as eric foner, xavier salai-i-martin, etc.?

      ok no fooling. For the bio majors out there... Readings in the Molecular Biology of Cancer. I just call it "the cancer class". Of course, stick in the "Readings" because you basically shouldn't go to the droned-on lectures and instead read from the textbook, which would save you a lot of pain and dozing off.

  11. History

    Barnard is offering History of Sexuality...

  12. History

  13. Bodily Senses

    Actually a great class...I took it last semester. If you're looking for an upper level Anthro seminar I would recommend it!
