Phase II of Telebears starts July 18, and you need to fill out your schedule. If you’re looking for electives and classes that won’t kill your GPA, look no further than majoring in Mass Comm. We’re kidding. Of course.

Taking the advice of posters on the UC Berkeley LiveJournal Community, we compiled a list of classes to consider when you need just a few more units for fall semester.

Unfortunately, UC Berkeley does not offer any real basket weaving courses.

Sliding Number of Units

  • Any DeCal listed on the site.
  • These courses will be up at the end of July. The site tends to list the courses progressively (and not all at once), so you may want to check back often.

    2 Units

  • Integrative Biology C82: Introduction to Oceans, MW 1-2 p.m. in 155 Dwinelle
  • 3 Units

  • Nutritional Science and Toxicology 10: Introduction to Human Nutrition, MW 2-3 p.m. in 150 Wheeler
  • Physics C10: Physics for Future Presidents, TuTh 9:30-11 a.m. in 1 Pimentel
  • Psychology 130: Clinical Psychology, MW 2-3 p.m. in 100 GPB
  • Psychology 150: Psychology of Personality, TuTh 10-11 a.m. in 100 GPB
  • Psychology 160: Social Psychology, MW 9-10 a.m. in 100 GPB
  • One community member said that a friend took Social Pyschology, an “awesome and absurdly easy” class.

    “A final composed of 2 short essays that you get the prompt to weeks before? Sounds pretty easy to me,” the member added.

    4 Units

  • Asian American Studies 20A: Introduction to the History of Asians in the United States, MWF 10-11 a.m. in 145 Dwinelle
  • College Writing 110: Advanced Composition: Challenging Writing, TuTh 2-3:30 p.m. in 14 Haviland
  • Development Studies C10: Introduction to Development, TuTh 12:30-2 p.m. in 2060 VLSB
  • Linguistics 5: Language and Linguistics, MWF 3-4 p.m. in 120 Latimer
  • Linguistics 55AC: The American Languages, MWF 3-4 p.m. in 145 Dwinelle
  • Sociology 3AC: Principles of Sociology, MWF 11 a.m.-12 p.m. in 105 Stanley
  • Another community member said of the College Writing course:

    bq. A great workshop class to improve your writing in a pretty stress free environment with a great laid back teacher. First day of class she comes out and says she gives everyone A’s as long as they come to class and do the work, which isn’t too bad.

    5 Units

  • Any foreign language course.
  • On student claimed that a language course is “awesomely fun and an easy 5-unit A.”

    When it comes to finding a decent schedule, we wish you the best of luck. We’ve seen some pretty gnarly schedules, and those students are never too happy with that. We suggest Aman’s UCB Schedule Planner. Word on the street is … it’s pretty sweet.
