Even More Of The Best Classes Ever

The face of true wisdom

We asked, you answered. Our not-so-definitive list of The Best Classes Ever just wasn’t awesome enough, so here are even more can’t-miss courses, featuring all the professors you secretly stalk in Westside and on Facebook. To make it even easier, we’ve split the list by classes you can register for RIGHT NOW (if there’s space), or classes you can plan your entire schedule around for next year. And if you’re only in it for the professor stalkage, other top picks are at the bottom.

Jump with us to get more intellectual inspiration!

      @anonymous thank the lord for that

    @Anonymous Andrews is the worst professor I have ever had at either Columbia or Barnard and taking his Money and Banking class was the worst decision I have ever made in my undergraduate career. He is incredibly disorganized, spent his class ranting about something or other, and taught next to no economics. His TAs are incompetent, unavailable, and barely understand English.

    Nothing against Andrews himself since he seems like a nice and intelligent man, but his classes are just bad.

    @* Middle Eastern Studies is part of MEALAC, now called MESAAS.

    @Anonymous Economics (Barnard): Marcellus Andrews. This is absolutely not true. He’s an awful teacher.

    @Anonymous Nothing like Marcellus to inspire strong feelings. Personally, I’d have his babies.
