In university, my favourite course was calculus. After I switched to science, my favourite course is Genetics.

In my college course at the moment, I'd say my favourite parts of it are Practical (Feeding, cleaning and handling animals) and Biology. I did I.T last year, and that is best forgotten :x.

Well I'm only in high school, so my courses aren't quite as specific as some of these. But this year my favourite is math, especially calculus. I also loved my physics course but I finished it last year. Chemistry was good last year but my teacher this year is awful.

That sounds like a class I'd like to take. :wink:

I'm only in high school too, but my favorite is science. Chemistry, biology, and physics are all fun, although I'm pretty crappy at math. My programming classes in 9th grade were awesome. 8)

I've taken a lot of great courses. My favorite, at least at the moment, was one I took a few years back, a Humanities course about War in Film. Basically we just watched war movies and wrote essays about them. I love war movies, and I love writing essays. So it was like a 3 hour class that was also a break from routine

Sociology, but only for the "value added" stuff my teacher included. The basic course was too... basic.

World Lit. II

Philosophy was a hoot. My professor allowed me to adopt/defend the position of a rabid materialist for the entire class. He never grasped that I was making fun of the course itself. :twisted:

Western Civ. I.-- I'm gonna teach this class someday. I'll have one class on orientation/syllabus/class policies and lecture on 12,000 BC to 265 BC, 14 weeks on the Punic Wars and the Fall of the Republic, and one class on 27 BC to 1640 AD, plus a short review for the final. 8)

You make it difficult to choose since you said 'course' in the singular..., but like nearly everyone who's responded thus far to this post, I'm going to give multiple answers: Writing and Literacy in East Asia; Art History 1, 2; Development of Modern Art; Art Since 1945; Fiction into Film; Seminar in Contemporary Design, in no particular order...

Not very scientific courses...
