Have you considered doing a People unit through OUA? There are some philosophy, sociology, politics and modern history options. What are your interests / degree you are doing? That'll give us more information to help you find a unit.

Hi, I'm doing Medical Science, but I'd like to do something that isn't science related so I have something a bit different you know? I was looking into INTS101 but thats only in S1 which is a bummer since I really need to do my People unit next sem if I want to graduate on time.

I understand.

There's INTS104 (Europe) & INTS204 (Latin America) if you are fine with studying another part of the world! If you would like to do something wildly different but relevant to everyday life, there is PHL132. I haven't done it, but alot of people on this forum can vouch for the philosophy department at Macquarie.

PH137 Critical Thinking is something that is meant to be relatively easy and some of my friends have found it interesting too.

AFAS200 is meant to be easy if you are looking for a GPA booster.

I beg to differ. I enrolled in this unit thinking the same thing based on reviews. The content was truly easy and the workload was relatively light, but assessments were marked really harshly. Also, that final exam was harder than any other assessments in all my other units. Despite spending almost as much time on this one unit as the other 3 combined, and despite the obvious scaling, this unit gave me my worst mark so far :'(
Or perhaps I'm just not good with essays.
