If You Could Go Back To College Right Now, What Would You Study?

Dec 10, 2018. 18 comments

In an ideal world, we would spend our college years soaking in new ideas, learning everything we could, and wrestling with big questions about the nature of life. In reality, for many of us, college was about partying hard, arguing with roommates over a sink full of dishes, and accidentally sleeping through Intro To Modernism. But imagine if you had a second chance at college. Imagine if you could go back and further hone skills you already have or learn some new ones. What would you study?

Would you go back to brush up on Python? Would you take intro courses on machine learning to help you land that dream promotion? Or maybe dust off your high school-level Spanish and try to become fluent? I went to college for screenwriting, but would jump at the chance to learn more about production or editing.

Now we want to know what courses you’d take if you could go back to school, so let us know in the comments below. And if all this talk about continuing your education has you hankering to learn something, check out Udemy. They’re offering up to 90% off lifetime access to over 80,000 affordable online courses to help you round out your skillsets and personal interests, covering subjects like coding and tarot cards.
