Recently, in addition to job hunting, scouring design blogs for inspiration, checking out preview photos for estate sales, keeping up to speed on certain sports teams, and - oh good grief, I could go on all day! - I also spent a good chunk of time on the Internet deciding how I'd like to further my education. If it was free. Oh yeah, and if it was only about three hours a week. Real ambitious, this one.
So hypothetically, if I were able to learn about new things for absolutely free (or at least for really cheap), I now know what those things would be. All twenty of them. Thanks to the local community college online catalog.
If I were seriously considering going back for my Masters (breathing into a bag at the overwhelming thought of the thesis), I'm not sure what I'd pursue. Probably a degree in writing or some other communications field.
But if we're talking about having some real educational fun, here are some of the classes I'd consider:
History of Architecture
Intro to Greek
Theory and Techniques of Interior Design
Styles of Furniture and Interiors
Materials and Sources (Interior Design)
Business Procedures (Interior Design)
Principles of E-Commerce
Geography of Tourism
Small Business Management
Business Mathematics?! I can't believe anything involving the word 'math' is included in this list, but unfortunately it's a very important part of owning your own business, which is something that I have an interest in.
What about you?
What would you pursue, either for fun or 'for serious'?
