As scheduling season sets in, you should know Ohio University offers some courses that aren’t your run-of-the-mill electives.
Perhaps the most popular example of this is the history of rock music (HIST 1240) course offered most semesters, which “examines birth, growth and development of rock music through its acceptance as art form.”
Lesser-known, it seems, is the observational astronomy course (ASTR 1400) — a one-credit-hour class that meets once a week from 8:10 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and gives students experience locating “stars, planets and deep-sky objects.”
And we would be remiss to skip over the bevy of attractive physical education and recreation courses offered on the Athens campus, including: Ice hockey; disc golf; ultimate frisbee; caving; scuba diving; and wilderness living skills.
