Taught by U of M’s resident hippie himself: Bruce Conforth. Bruce captivates the class by taking them back in time to the days of post-WWII America.

Another fun course to get a natural science credit in is this mini-course about Aliens. You’ll learn about the theories regarding extra terrestrials and whether they’ve walked on Earth, or whether they ever will.
An interesting class where students learn about four specific policy areas by different professors who are experts in each area. Past topics include: copyright policy, health policy (the Flint water crisis), education policy, and voting policy.
