I'm glad that I had the freedom to choose classes in Poland based on elective credits, and not be restricted to my major requirements. The final courses I chose were:
The Holocaust: Research and Memory
Polish Contemporary Film
Sociology and Psychology of Terrorism
Polish Language: COMPLETE BEGINNER
Social Life Under Communism: The Polish Case
Ever since I saw the Holocaust course in the catalog back at home, I have been anxiously awaiting it. This atrocity plays such a large part in Polish history and I knew that if I took this course I would have a much better understanding of Poland as a whole.
