As it turns out, while college is a wholly different experience from any other academic environment, it still shares a few similarities with high school. One of the biggest is the course load placed upon you, especially during your first year in school. Many colleges have a set of required courses students must take as part of their general education requirements. Without taking this assortment of courses, students cannot graduate.

However, for any number of reasons, you may not want to take certain first-year courses. Take Western Civilization II: 1648 to the Present, for instance. You may be a budding history major and feel you’re already knowledgeable enough about this subject.
