Make your Courses about the Issues
Description
There are several classes here at UW that you can make about the several different issues. Directed readings and Independent studies(is.uwaterloo.ca) are a perfect example of this. Even making your class projects about the issues is easy, for example you could write that anthropology paper about vegetarian culture, or that psychology paper about the inconclusive results found through animal testing, or your geography paper on the environmental degredation caused by factory farming.
