- entrepreneurship lecture series
- intro to film
- business practices of graphic design
- social entrepreneurship
- motion graphics
- individual directed study with the head of the art department
It has taken quite awhile to finalize, but I am pumped. On facebook a few months ago, I put up the status update: "Best class taken at BYU?" Several of my friends mentioned intro to film so I thought I would check it out. I decided that I am way influenced by the shows I love.
For example, everyone knows that I secretly (and not so secretly) want to be Kathleen Kelly from You've Got Mail and that I thought my college experience could look somewhat like Rory's in Gilmore Girls.
My entrepreneurship lecture series is just 1 credit to finish off my business minor. I wanted to take the women's entrepreneurship class but it conflicted with my schedule. Tragic.
I am already loving my business practices class. It is nice to talk about real life and planning instead of just the fluff of design. It will also be rather convenient to be talking about how to get a job while I am beginning the search to find something awesome.
The social entrepreneurship class is going to be so awesome. The teacher is Warner Woodworth, who has created several groups to help educate people in third world countries. He is a professor of organizational behavior and so he uses business principles to apply to the "social sector" the area of the economy that is not taken care of by either the private or public sector. The first time he did this class, they created Help International- which is a program that 2 of my dear roommates joined. Kelli went to Guatemala and completed an internship teaching women about hygiene. At the same time Aly went to Uganda and helped build sun ovens and teach about hygiene.
I know next to nothing about any of this stuff, but I think it is going to be great. How can it not be when this is our textbook:

And this is something he created on his own:

Beautiful right? I am so going to love Winter 2011!
