Acting 101 was one of my favorites.

Sociology in Medicine and Health talked about how screwed up the American healthcare system is with 99% of the class being pre-med and the professor constantly informing us if "you're going into medicine for the money you're gonna have a bad time".

The #1 best class I had was created by my research PI who wanted to get all his lab students interested in grad-level research. Had 1 class a week for 3 hours where we would look at old submissions for research grants and try to guess if they were accepted or not plus what kind of bs people would do to try and get grants for crap projects. Just having a casual talking session with students and grad students while drinking wine on campus every wednesday night was a truly memorable experience.

Had 1 really super excelling student in that research grant class who was confused by the lack of a real syllabus or real assignments and freaked out about how she could get an A in the class and had the PI tell her "this is one of the most meaningful and easiest A's you'll ever get just by showing up"

all of my favorite classes have been dependent a little on the topic, yes, but a lot more on the professors. professors who genuinely care about tailoring their syllabi and rethinking their teaching pedagogy will give you a fantastic class, no matter the topic or department. the most rewarding classes i’ve taken in undergrad have been: global environmental history, cult camp and exploitation movies, intro to film production, history and memory in the Middle East, and anthropology of islam. if you’re open to really engaging the material and taking it out of the classroom, you can really learn a lot about yourself and about the world around you

my favorite class was taught at an educational dairy farm where I got to care for cows, culture bacteria, run (cow related) research while being taught by numerous vets and other dairy management professionals. idk it was kinda cute! made me fall in love with cows and the amazing people in the dairy industry! my other favorite class was agricultural policy because it was kinda beautiful to realize how so much of the usa specifically relies on those simple roots

I took a class just like this! Crazy how many people are premed but know very little about the way healthcare actually works

International Marketing.

Pretty dope seeing all the ways marketing has failed over seas / into different countries because people don't take the time to learn other culture's or even languages for that matter.
Analytical Mechanics and Analysis are my favorite so far

not a class but, my bio lab instructor was demonstrating how to use the chemical wash shower and eye wash station and stood under the shower and got soaked and walked around the rest of the class saturated

safe to say i didn't show up to his labs anymore after that

yeah i took another class where all we did was watch movies once a week. granted it was at night (iirc 6ish to 9ish) and all the movies were 1930s-40s musicals with some exceptions (i.e. meryl streep mamma mia and all that jazz, one of my favorite movies ever). only had to write two papers for it, and was a pretty easy A. the professor was very well-informed too. made me wish i had more opportunities to take classes of his, but he was a fine arts prof and i was only taking his class to meet a uni credit requirement.

I took a tour management class in college (my degree is in music business) and we learned about how to plan a tour, life on tour etc and did a semester long project creating our own tour from start to finish. tons and tons of work but loved it
