I am currently pursuing a degree in political science. I decided I wanted to take a degree in that after I tried different courses at SBCC, and really enjoyed International Relations and Global problems. I also did these courses: Introduction to Logic, Modern philosophy, Cognitive psychology, Social psychology, The study of Evil, and Crime and human behavior. I also had a couple of more practical courses, which was Hiking, Track and Field, and Ocean swimming. Ocean swimming is by far the coolest thing I have ever done – I went from being scared of the ocean and not being able to put my head under water, to by the end of the semester crawl a 5 km!
I started my studies in 2019 for the Fall semester, and continued for a second semester in the Spring. Sadly I had to relocate back to Norway once the corona pandemic hit Europe and the States, and I had to finish my exams from there. I really miss Santa Barbara, and I hope I might be able to move back to the States at some point after the pandemic, and finish my political science degree there.
I went to my classes which are overall very good and useful. The professors talked about a subject which I had prepared at home by reading some material to that day. In between classes I would eat lunch, and/or go to the library or sit outside on campus soaking the sun while studying. After school I would always hang out with friends, go for a run, maybe go to the beach, study, go to the movies and more.
