Also, is a major more difficult than an elective?
Not quite sure what you mean....? An elective is a course that you take that is not required to earn a degree in your major; basically it's a class you take because you want to. There are a certain number of elective credits that you have to fill to get your degree, and you are required to take certain "types" of electives, but within each category you are able to choose a specific class. For instance, I have elective requirements for classes about diversity, but within that I can choose women's studies class, a chicano history class, etc.
Your major is the field in which you're getting your degree, so for you I believe you said that was engineering. You're department courses (the courses about engineering) will undoubtedly be harder than your elective credits just by nature of the degree you're seeking.
I hope this makes sense? I'm sure once you get enrolled you'll get the lingo down - sorry if I'm confusing you!
Oh - and as far as recommending courses - for ME, so far the most interesting classs I've had have been microbiology, exercise science, poetry, sociology, and all political science courses. (and of course anything related to my major, nutrition. Exercise science is my minor)
I'm so excited for you to have this opportunity! I know it's going to be a great experience for you!
