For us in university, a new semester has either just begun or is about to begin. What courses are you taking?

>not being a lit/phil major
Philosophy and French Lit double major here. I'm taking courses on 19th C. Lit, North African French Lit, metaphysics, a required survey on Descartes through Kant, and a seminar on the Critique of Pure Reason.
Music major here. Doing composition. Philosophy course was full so i took astronomy as elective and midterm is next week and i have no idea wtf is going on.
Poetry, Justice and Spanish.

Should b gud

Early Works of Shakespeare (includes all of the Henriad and the Sonnets)
Chaucer (entire Caunterbury tales end to end in ME)
Modernist British Novelists
Am taking Anglo-American short story and 20th century poetry. Also some American postmod.

I'm on my third gap year, but fairly sure I'll be studying philosophy. I've shown great aptitude for it in the past, and I am very interested in the subject.

What has held me off is job prospects. Anyone have any bright ideas for what jobs philosophers can have, besides teaching? I'm guessing that consultancy is possible as well.
Application of Deleuzian Theory to Literature
Tolstoy's Ethics
Annals of Tacitus
Damn, I miss university.

Anyone on here successfully gone into teaching literature at university? I've got English and Secondary Education degrees, and I'm trying to figure out a path to take towards getting a doctorate (and hopefully some time to write on the side, too).
Managerial roles
I'm taking 3 computer science courses + Mandarin.
if you're at a good school - whatever you want. tech, banking, consulting, corporate, etc.
if you're at a shit school/generic state school - barista at starbucks

Go a great books program, senior year.

Language will be mostly late 19th to early 20th century lit and poetry, not sure of the syllabus yet.
Math will be a semester of Einstein.
Lab will bio, including Mendel and Darwin
Seminar is weird mixture of philosophy, music and lit, middle 19th century to early 20th, including Nietzsche, Wagner, Dostoevski, William James, Tocqueville, Faulkner, Freud, Wittgenstein and Heidegger.

2nd year Bachelors in Physiotherapy

George Orwell - 1984
William Gibson - Neuromancer
Kurt Vonnegut - The Sirens of Titan

You sound like someone I want to share a drink with in a pub.

It's alright.

Pick one with smooching
Enjoy paying those loans, cucks.
3rd World English Literature student here. Technically my course is called English Language and Literature, so l've got a bunch of grammar-related shit as well.

The semester hasn't started yet, so l'm not exactly sure what classes l'll be taking, but it should look something like this:

>Modern English Language IV

A useless subject comprised of speaking and writing exercises. I guess it's something like general knowledge of English.

>Phonetics and Phonology II

Pretty self-explanatory. A lot of people seem to have a problem with adapting to RP due to the influence of American media. It's actually a lot more fun that l thought it would be. Not as mundane as what l had last year, anyway.

>English Poetry II

I think this course covers 18th century poetry, so l'm looking forward to readin' me some Byron and Shelley.

>Psychology II

This one isn't in English, but we have to take it as our career choices are pretty much limited to teaching English in hisgh school, so this is supposed to be an intro into how the whole shtick is supposed to work.

>American short stories II

This class was by far my favorite of last semester, l hsd to pick it up again. We'll be reading Hemingway, Faulkner, O'Connor and Munro, as far as l know.

>America in the 20th century

This is mostly history and cultural studies, but the lecturer is supposed to be really good, so l've got high hopss for this one.

Any other non-Anglo English Lit students out there? What's it like elsewhere in the world?
First year physics major, started last semester.
>Computer Science (physics majors learn matlab)
>Honors Physics I
>Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (getting a minor in geophysics)
>Multivariable Calculus
