1-Credit Courses to Consider

As you start planning your schedule for next semester, maybe considering adding one more credit to your course load. Purdue offers many one-credit classes that are not only easygoing, but interesting. And these easygoing, interesting courses range from Liberal Arts to Engineering.

SCLA300 is a great way to bump your schedule up one more credit and an even better way to network. SCLA is run out of the College of Liberal Arts, meeting only once a week for 50 minutes. This class focuses on networking with alumni from the university. Alumni visit the class, share their success stories, and give advice that will help you have a success story of your own!

Another incredible class to take is ME297, titled “How Stuff Works.” This course meets once a week and focuses on taking items apart and putting them back together. You’ll become familiar with everything from hairdryers to toasters—even locks!

If you are feeling rather active, PES114 is the perfect schedule filler for you. This class, commonly known as Exercise and Conditioning, is a great way to get your exercise in and learn some new health techniques. The course includes body conditioning, swimnastics, relaxation techniques, and weight training. This course’s popularity increases each semester, as more and more students find out about it. Don’t be afraid to check if there are spots still available.

If none of these three courses interested you, there are endless options. Other courses you may look into are Personal Finance (CSR105), Approaches to the Study of Interpersonal Communication (COM212), and Interior Flower Arrangement (HORT360).

If you have questions or concerns, feel free to schedule an appointment with your advisor. They’ll be more than happy to help you find the perfect class to fit your schedule.
