Hello student life!
Today I have become a student, yet again. I know… I know this creates a diploma inflation at home but I like studying. That is my only defence here. To be honest I am quite surprised with the system Anadolu University is using. I entered my personal data and nearly everything was read from the e-government system without my meddling.
So, all I have to do is get up and drag my carcass to the local registration bureau and submit the required documents and pay the fee.
Oh and I will be getting those courses this year, taken from the university’s webpage:
- Information Technologies
This will be a breeze, considering I am earning my keep as a programmer currently. I am afraid to tempt the fate but “how hard can it be?”
- Introduction to Law
I have never studied law formally before. I dabbled in the law related textbooks while writing my thesis on organized crime and got “philosophy of law” during my bachelor studies but I somehow missed Law101. So I think this will be interesting.
- Introduction to Economics I
Ditto for this course too. But the difference is I had no reason to be interested in Economics and therefore never dabbled in it. But I have the textbook from Mankiw so if everything else fails I can use some extra help from it.
- Introduction to Sociology
Well, I have a master’s from it. I also did some refresher courses from the University of Amsterdam via Coursera so I am not expecting any trouble from this front.
- Introduction to World Civilization
Um… I have no idea what this course will be about. And there are no detail links on the page, at least at the time this blogpost is written, so this will be a surprise for me. I think, and hope, they will follow the general outline of a book I have in my library titled as “Western Civilizations” by Lerner, Meacham, and Burns. If so I have another lecture which I had done preliminary reading before.
- Introduction to International Relations
This is IR101. We’ll see how they had structured this. But we’ll see.
Anyway I am quite happy about this. Hope I can pass with a stellar grade from each and every one of them.
