Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Would you prefer to take courses taught by professors with whom you have already had other classes during your past years of study, or would you prefer to take courses with professors whose classes you have never taken before? Why? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer. Be sure to use your own words. Do not use memorized examples.
Some students try to take their courses by the professors that they have already had other classes with him. However, I personally, do not agree with this idea. I feel this way for two main reasons, which I will explore in the following essay. To begin with, I think taking course by a new professor, is a great opportunity to learn new things because of his different point of view and his alternative teaching method. Drawing from my own experience, when I was an undergraduate student, there was a wonderful professor in my university, all students prefer to take courses by her and I did the same, like everyone else. In this case, actually she was an excellent professor and it was an honor to take course by her, nevertheless, after some years studying and taking some courses by her, I realized since I had been taught by one person, I had studied only one specific categories, and look to scientific issues in only one way. I mean I had no idea how to think different, I just know one approach to solve problems. In contrast, if I had the courage to risk and take course by different professor, I would had the chance to think out of box and find distinct solution for questions. Therefore, I think it is better take courses by new professors. Furthermore, taking courses by different professors lead to multiple chances. What I mean is, usually students get help of professors to find jab after graduation. Generally, professors give students recommendation or connect them to job opportunity. Therefore, when a student take course by more professor, there would be more chance for job after graduation. For example, in contrast with bachelor degree, I took courses by different professors in master, consequently, I get 4 different recommendation and introduce to 2 different PHD positions by the professors. In conclusion, I strongly believe that it is better to take study courses to different professors. This is because of learning distinguished way or learning scientific subjects and more than one opportunity to find job after graduation.
