College is the time where you learn, grow and develop as a person. You increase your capacity for learning and broaden your knowledge of different subjects. It’s not just your major you have to think about when you’re in college. You also need to give some thought to what other subjects you might want to study, as well as the range of extracurricular activities on offer as well.

Now, don’t get us wrong, there are some very niche classes, and many of them can be very pretentious. But, there are a few that we absolutely recommend you check out and consider taking as soon as possible. We all have different learning styles and interests, as such, the classes we “should all take” is entirely subjective. These are some of the ones we feel will benefit everybody at some point in their lives.

Speech

This might sound odd because, well, you can already talk, right?! But this is more a course that helps improve your confidence with speech, particularly public speaking. Public speaking is one of the most feared things in the world, but, it’s also feared by the majority, so don’t worry if it scares you as well. Taking a speech class is going to help you develop much more confidence and better public speaking skills. And this is something that’s going to help you in so many different areas, hence why it’s such a crucial course.

English Composition

You would be surprised by how many people are unable to write well these days. Whether it’s spelling, grammar, or the composition of sentences, this seems to be something people struggle with. Being able to construct a sentence coherently and competently is something of a lost artform these days. That’s why you are going to benefit so much from taking an English Composition course. It will help your writing to stand out from others, and make you seem more professional in the work you do. It will also help with those seriously long reports and essays you have to write, too.

Personal Finance

We cannot stress enough the importance of this course. When we were in college, there was nothing like this available to students, but we wish there had been. There is nothing that weighs on a student’s soul more than financial burdens. This is the perfect course for helping understand the implications of your degree, as well as allowing you to manage your money better for the future. Getting a handle on your finances is the best way of stopping you falling into financial hardship later down the line.

Professional Skills

This class is basically all about how you have to go about finding a job. It teaches you all the necessary things you need to know to help you develop employable skills. For instance, you’ll learn how to craft the perfect resume, not to mention a short, snappy cover letter to accompany it. You’ll be taught how to network and develop relationships, and how to go about creating a personal website. Make sure you take this course as it will set you on the right road to future employment.

Every student will benefit from taking classes like these, and that’s why we’ve recommended them. It’s so important to ensure that you give yourself extra skills and abilities while you’re studying, and that’s where these classes come in so handy. You need to make sure you think about life after college, and these are classes that will all help you make the best future for yourself.
