might help if you say what major you're in as they change depending on department.

I took Global Environmental Studies with prof. Duenez

Geog 204 I think . It's very interesting and the prof is super cool,

It's basically about the relation between Humans and the Environment and how they impact one an other . etc etc .

That's my recommendation

I would go for the easiest thing you can find. When I was there I loaded up on those Sociology courses; Never had a grade below A, they were a joke. They also come in handy if you are applying to competitive graduate and professional programs where you are judged solely on your GPA

Would you recommend this to someone who hasn't had prior exposure to Science classes?

I have done some Chem classes (didn't particularly like them though ) but I was thinking of recommending this to a friend who has never taken any "Science" Classes.

While we're on the topic of electives for university anyone know any good electives for Mcgill???

I took italian, but language courses although easy are a lot of work I don't feel like doing more work for an elective than my major courses

Just in case

Major: Political Science
Minor: Philosophy

I'm an Atmospheric Science major and as electives I've taken COMP 102 Computers and Computing (easy, but can be easily boring), and ATOC 240 Science of Storms. Science of Storms is given in the Winter semester and while the work load isn't that big (~5 assignments, 3-4 questions), it can be difficult to someone with no knowledge of Meteorology, meaning lots of reading. There was also ATOC 230 in Winter that is about Climate Change that I didn't take since it was useless for me.

If you look for 200-level courses in any department, you should find something interesting.

Online courses are Concordia are a joke for the most part.

1 - Course Outline Chemistry in Our Lives "CHEM 208" (Easy A)
2 - Computer Usage and Document Design "INTE 290" (SUPER EASY A)

I've taken the above two courses, very easy.
There are a few other easy ones, but they usually have a lot of work for an online course, but nonetheless they're easy.
Avoid the Personal Finance (Online) course, it sucks.

Sorry to hijack this thread, but I have a question as well.

For JMSB, I heard that COMM215 (Business Statistics) can be challenging. I have the option of taking it online... Is it better to just go to class twice a week or taking it online?

If you took grade 10 physical science you will be fine.

I forgot about INTE 290...Also retardedly easy. But some people might not get credit for it. If you did any computer classes in CEGEP or University you probably can't take the course for credit.

Any class that has a reputation of being hard I would NOT take online. I didn't have too much trouble with comm 215 but I knew a lot of people who did.

I don't understand why people want to take the easiest courses. Then again, you guys probably study at Concordia for a reason...

This. Also AHSC 240. I think its called Leisure in Canada. Mid term is kind of hard but the rest is a huge joke.

I was told FINA 200 (online), Chemistry of our lives, and Marketing Yourself are all jokes.

I got an A+ in Stats but I took it back in the day when you were allowed to bring notes to the exam. It would be much harder otherwise.

- Core courses are tough enough without having to spend your time on useless electives.
- We need to boost our GPAs to get into grad school.

Then again, McGill students don't care about grad school because they're too busy bragging about going to McGill to even bother applying.
