I need an easy filler class

    Music lessons. I think they come in 2 or 4 credits, and they're guaranteed easy As. There's group or private lessons, but aside from Piano, I think you have to supply your own instruments.
    Music and Performing Arts Professions FAQs - Music Department - NYU Steinhardt

    Intro to Digital Photography in Steinhardt. I'm in it now, and Steinhardt has DSLRs available for loan, but our teacher let us use point-and-shoots for our assignments. I had an A on my midterm grade.

    Supposedly, I've heard that the Irish language classes at the intro level are easy.

    Any Intro art class such as Intro to Sculpture or Intro to Drawing/Painting, but only if you're willing to do a bunch of work outside the classroom.

    What about one of the Tisch Open Arts? There's always some sort of filler class in there.

    I know these are all "artsy" kind of classes, so if you're not really into that, I could suggest other ones.

    Thanks. I was looking into something in CAS though (I don't have non-CAS credits so anything outside of CAS I have to get a waiver from the dean's office if I want it to count).

    Music lessons sound pretty good...I could take 4 credits' worth of piano lessons or something. An hour a week, and 4 credits' worth of As unless I don't show up.

    I was thinking about food science too through Steinhardt.
