Arts (and/versus) Science: Tutorials

Most people at U of T (and in life) will generally label themselves as either an “arts/humanities person” or a “math/science person”. Being able to pursue (or even have an interest in) both in equal measure certainly creates a lot of rewards, but it also comes with some unique challenges.

As someone who’s currently doing one arts major + one science major, I have learned that I definitely have to wire my brain differently for courses depending on whether they’re an arts course or a science course. Things like studying, taking notes, knowing what to expect from instructor-student relations are different enough in these two areas that sometimes I get caught off guard when I’m not being mindful of when I need to switch my brain from one mode to another.
