Should I broaden my horizons or self-indulge?

I'm looking for one more course to take in the summer term. So far, I'm considering:

Native Studies 200
Math 115
Religious Studies 220
Linguistics 100 or 101

Have you anything to say about any of these? The religious studies class is about Islam, and it and the Native Studies course are attempts to ameliorate my ignorance in these areas. Math and Linguistics are clearly self-indulgent. What to do?

I'd pick Native Studies. I figure you'd probably gain the most out of that as a course, whereas with the other courses, math and linguistics especially, they're probably primarily textbook-based, and so, if you felt so inclined, you could just learn the same material on your own and not miss anything.

I wouldn't recommend Math 115. I too think Native Studies is your best bet, with Religion a close second.

I took Art History in part to broaden my horizons. It turns out there was a very good reason that I had not hitherto developed an interest in art history.

Take math.

Art History was awesome. But avoid Math 115, unless you care about strategies for performing integration.

I can't say that I don't.

Math and linguistics are your self indulgent classes? Catrin, you so weird!

I could always tutor you in math anyway, and go well beyond 115.

So don't take math!
