Need one more BALS Upper Level
#1
Before tackling the Capstone I need 1 more Upper Level course for my TESU BALS. I have a lot of choices, but I'm not sure which I want to take. Realizing this might be the last alternative credit class I ever take (at least for a while), I feel like crowd sourcing the decision a little bit. Any advice (from experienced gurus, brand new newbs, or anyone else) for which class I should take? Maybe something quick and 'easy' (such a relative term!), or something super cheap, or something totally off the wall?  All advice is welcome. especially if it's a course you've taken.  

Here are the UL classes I currently have:

BALS AOS UL classes
LIT-430 Literature and the Media
ENG-306 Inter. Tech. Wrtg. & Prof. Wt.
LIT-320 Shakespeare I
HIS-351 A History of Vietnam War

Other Upper level courses I have, but not in AOS
CIS-360 E-Commerce (TESU said 'no' to AOS - maybe I should ask again?)
PHI-384 Ethics & Business Professional (only 2 credits - had it moved to gen ed)
MAN-301 Principles of Management (didn't ask, but assume TESU wouldn't move this one since it's business)


Thanks!

Thanks!  Where did you take the money and banking & the business ethics 302?  I really enjoy taking ethics courses.

All of my UL were DSSTs.

If you like ethics you could probably just do the flashcards and pass the business ethics course. Though it will duplicate the free ethics course.

I wouldn't mind that - I have an extra elective course floating around so it wouldn't set me back at all. I also see some folks have been able to take the 2 credit ethics course and the 2 credit UL TEEX CIS 344 course for AOS credit.  Maybe I'll do that, since it's free.  I took one of the TEEX courses, but not CIS 344.

TESU has downgraded some of the DSST's and the TEEX courses, so those may not be an option any longer.

I was just looking at that on TESU's transfer guide, and getting ready to post a question (you read my mind).  Oh well. Substance Abuse looks interesting, and History of the Soviet Union.  More choices for credit than ever, but It's a job keeping track of what fits where. Definitely a first world problem to have.  Cool

You may want to just take the final course at Study.com, do their other UL History course - I am also looking for my "last" course. As I just finished the History of Vietnam War Today!! I just need that course and the 2018 August LIB 495 Capstone course and I am also done with the BALS! (No concentration) - I am going for the NSM concentration though, so I am doing an extra 5 courses in Comp Sci/CIS.
Goals: TESU BSBA GM (Added CIS) and BA Computer Science
BSBA GM - Added CIS AOS (CIS & GM completed)
BACS & Grad Plans (BACS instead of BALS w/NSM)

ASNSM Math: Remaining - Study.com Calculus I (3 credits)
Certs: Accounting, Marketing, Operations Management: Complete 

Taking a majority of credits at Sophia.org, SL, and Study.com to finish these degrees
Updating my courses remaining by following forum advice, guide, spreadsheet & wiki

There are tons of choices from Study.com. That's the way I would go, for ease (and free transcript to TESU, although I suppose DSST would do the free transcript as well).
