10 Courses You Need To Take In College


Your college will recommand you to take core undergraduate courses, which can either become very useful for your future. Before you are going to learn any course, take time to consider which you might benefit most from and which fits within your program requirements to count towards graduation. Having a basic understanding of certain subjects can become very useful throughout life and it is actually in your best interest to develop, at the very least, basic skills. 

 

Accounting/Finance

If you plan to have a job, that means you have plans to make money. Moreover, if you plan to make money that means you will have to pay taxes. If you can file your own taxes and manage your own money, you are going to be a lot more self sufficient.

 

 Science

Science is all around us! Learning about scientific subjects will further your discovery about the world in which you live. Pick one that interests you and explore!

 

 Art

Perhaps you’re not the world’s most outwardly creative individual. However, that doesn’t mean you cannot appreciate and cultivate an understanding for the arts. Nobody is one dimensional in terms of talent and college is all about exploration.

 

Business Management

If you plan on starting your own business, working for a large company or a small office, business is everywhere when it comes to the work environment. Though you may not be managing the business,  it’s useful to know how things operate and what your managers or superiors are going through, how to operate and how important business decisions are made. 

 

Communication

Whether speaking to one or one hundred people, it’s important to learn how to communicate your message clearly. In these courses, you’ll learn to get your point across through understanding your audience, conveying your message and speaking with confidence.

 

 History

Our past influences such a large part of our future and understanding these historic events can help propel future discoveries. While there is far too much history to learn in one course, choosing one topic that interests you is certainly a great start!

 

 Journalism

No matter what field you choose to go into, strong writing skills will not only be beneficial, but essential to your success as well. They’ll help you to communicate with future employers and, once you gain employment, your boss and colleagues. You will find that writing skills will become necessary your entire life.

 

Political Science

Government is confusing and, assuming you’d like to become an informed citizen when you vote, this is a good option to do so. Within these courses, you can learn about how elections really work,  how the government is structured and, of course, politics galore!

 

Statistics

Involved in so many of our business and financial decisions, statistics often seem to make the world go round. A basic understanding of how statistics are calculated is integral to making the very decisions based on them.

 

Web Design/Development

Basic computer skills important for your career. Give it a few more years and you can likely add basic HTML coding and editing web pages to that requirement as well. If you can add other web development skills like proficiency in programs, such as Photoshop, CSS, Javascript  and many more then you’re going to be way ahead of the curve.
