When I was at York, I took an Ornithology course. This was back in 2004 though.

It was pretty boring to tell you the truth.

What is a bird course depends on the person. Some people I know think Linear Algebra and Stochastic Calculus are bird courses for example. I did fine in a few courses on the bird list but my best marks came from "hard" courses.

PSYC1010 is easy if you get the right prof as it's just memorization. GEOG1000 and GEOG1410 are also easy but ridiculously boring. I would even say that ECON1000/ECON1010 are also bird courses if you do the practice problems.

ECON1000/ECON1010 felt like bird courses to me as well especially as it was all multiple choice when I took it.

IT'S YORK. Everything is.

In all honesty, at the undergrad level... the courses are pretty much the same between the universities. Give or take some variations of difficulty based on the prof's or how the TA's mark. In general, the material is pretty much the same...

For example, I was taking a 3rd Economics course at York, where the prof. also taught at U of T. The text and course outlines were the exact same and the exams were the same. The only difference was the TA's marking the exams, and the Prof for that class even marked exams himself so those would be marked on the level.

Also, me and another friend took the same Econ course and even studied together for finals. Again a 3rd year course, he was at Waterloo. We used the same textbook and I actually ended up having to study an extra chapter of the text. Our exams were pretty similar in number of questions and amount to time... who knows about marking, again depends on prof and TA.

Hell, watch the lectures that Yale puts up on youtube. They have an international trade economics course they did last term... they even show the outline for the course and the marking breakdown. The materials, lecture notes, exam requirements, mark breakdown.... all the same as what I took at York.

See this group http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2230874110

I cannot even join the group!! I am looking for a good website that will help me find "bird" courses at YorkU. Despite the fact that York is a large university, I cannot find a good site. I know it all depends on your professors but input from students certainly helps.

Currently I am looking for: AP/SOSC 1XXX 9.0 and AP/HUMA 1XXX 9.0 to meet the General Education requirement. Any ideas???
