As with any list of classes at University of Minnesota, this is strictly opinion. These were all my own experiences or recommended by fellow students. And no, they aren’t all PE courses. This is a list of interesting classes that will teach you something, but are also rumored to be quite easy for most students who take them. Looking for a couple of easier credits to lighten your course load? Look no further.
Not only is this class literally just spent bowling, but it will also help you be a more impressive date. Take them out to the bowling alley after a semester in this class, and you’ll definitely impress.
This class covers a wide variety of interesting and relevant topics related to sexuality, including anatomy, hormones, cultural perspectives, and related social issues.
This course broadly covers the topic of cultural studies, including examples from “visual arts, music, film, literature, myth, ritual, built environment.”
A team-focused approach to the science of our natural environment, examining real problems and looking for real solutions.
The ultimate course to help you learn about jobs, get a job, be good at a job, and not be too stressed, because the class is reportedly easy.
Another course designed to help you succeed in life, but that won’t keep you up all night studying.
I can vouch for this one. While the subject material is not thrilling, and the tests are relatively hard, the class is a breeze. You spend a day of class every couple weeks just watching a movie on a huge projector. The movies are barely geology related. Not bad at all.
This is the most basic creative writing class, which covers fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, giving you a chance to try out all three. The lecture portion of the class features author guest speakers and the discussion section is mostly for writing and workshopping. It’s easy, and pretty fun if you like to write.
This is the non-audition version of college band. Meaning, less pressure, and all the fun of playing the instrument that you love in whatever setting works best.
The course description literally lists Red Riding Hood and Harry Potter as examples of course texts. I’m still bitter this class has never fit into my schedule.
