If you’ve flopped on a few exams and generally dropped the ball in some of your courses, you’re probably looking for a way to get your GPA back on track, especially if you’re thinking of applying to grad school.
Elitists like to say that McGill has no bird courses and that if your grades suck you should just transfer to Concordia. But of course this isn’t true, there are some classes at McGill that are insanely easy and here they are.
Any Language You Already Know
This is a super disingenuous move, but if you already know another language, McGill doesn’t do placement tests for languages outside of French, so you can use your skills to get an easy A with minimal language.
MUAR 392 - Popular Music After 1945
The only 300-level course on this list, but it’s still an easy one to get an A in, as all the concepts are well-explained and fleshed out and all you’ve got to do is reproduce them at exam time.
ATOC 185 - Natural Disasters
This is such an infamous easy class, it even has a cute nickname: Natty D’s.
SOCI 250 - Social Problems
This is a class that is particularly easy because the profs are known to point out specifically which part of the readings you’ll be tested on for your exam.
MUAR 211 - Art of Listening
It doesn’t sound like a hard class and it isn’t, and as a bonus you’ll develop some simple critical and musical skills that will enhance your life, probably. You have to go to a couple concerts and write reports, and aside from that the tests are super straight forward.
