Top Ten Weirdest College Courses

The Top Ten

1 Lady Gaga and the Sociology of Fame - University of South Carolina Columbia

It's a course on sociology where the main focus is on the topic "fame". It explores on how certain persons become famous in public. It takes Lady Gaga's life story as the base for this research and her rise to fame. - Kiteretsunu

I hate to think how many applicants there were. Or how far people traveled to attend this, as I'm sure that it only happens at USC. - PositronWildhawk

People Arlredy knows lady Gaga why do u still need to learn about a celebrity - Stevenpenguin

3 Tree Climbing - Cornell University

Ever tried tree climbing at young age? This course will make sure you become a master at it. At least you'll get a recognised course of credit. - Kiteretsunu

4 The Science Of Harry Potter - Frostberg State University

It deals with physics principles used in quidditch, and explores genetic engineering for creating "monsters". - Kiteretsunu

5 Gossip - Cornell University

The title is really misleading. It actually focuses on the works of famous doctors and psychologists like Freud and not the standard gossip magazines. It is placed here because of its bizarre name, though the course in actuality is fine. - Kiteretsunu

6 Zombies in Popular Media - Columbia College Chicago

The title says itself. If you're a zombie fanatic and you read comics and novels about them, this is the place you cannot miss. - Kiteretsunu

7 The Art Of Walking - Centre College in Danville, Kentucky

The course helps students to understand the beauty of "aesthetic walking". Students are taught here how to walk properly in public. Their reason -"In this age of the automobiles, walking is considered as the lost form of transportation. So we must help these children in this."
Really? - Kiteretsunu

8 Tattoos in American Popular Culture - Pitzer College

This course focuses on the history and influences of which tattoing had on the American society. - Kiteretsunu

9 Philosophy and Star Trek - Georgetown University

Students here debate on the philosophical principles concerning events taking place at Star Trek. Really nice place to discuss Star Trek here, I must say. - Kiteretsunu

10 Underwater Basket Weaving - University of California, San Diego

It deals with weaving of baskets by soaking wet plant materials. So if you have ever dreamt of becoming a basket weaver, you will at least have a recognised course of credit. - Kiteretsunu
