Telebear Troubles!

Hello everyone!

Phase two of telebears has begun and everyone is scrambling to get the classes that they want/need for next semester! But what happens if a class that you wanted is full? What to do? Don’t fret!

This unexpected set back can give you the opportunity to take that random class that you’ve been eyeing but were hesitating to take because you would prefer to do a major requirement. Feel free to explore departments that are not your major departments, take some humanities or just a random interesting science course. Some courses suggestions from my experience are: EPS 80, Nutritional science 10, Slavic literature, or a course on Greek Myths (I really liked this one!). There are tons of classes at Berkeley, and a lot of recommendations out there as well. Just talk to other students or maybe try looking at the student resource handbook at this link for some courses recommended by other students! Not all classes are offered in the spring but hey you might find something you weren’t expecting. :]

You can also think about taking some seminars or Decals. Decals, in case you don’t know, are 1-2 unit courses that are taught by students for students. You can find a list at: Decals are student run and very fun, they range from archery, to swing dancing, to harry potter to scrabble. Some require applications so you can’t bank on getting in but they are great classes to keep in mind, or just some fun classes you can take! Highly recommended! All classes are pass, no pass.

Some other options you can look into: Fulfill a breadth! If you need to that is. It is a great time to take another fun class and fulfill a breadth at the same time (if you need to that is).

If you want a class that can fulfill a requirement or maybe might give you a good idea of the major you are interested in, you can also contact us PALs for ideas. :] Best of luck with telebears! And don’t stress too much about classes, it’ll all work out in the end! :]
