Ridiculous Course Offerings?

New graduates complain that they can't find jobs.

Maybe some of the current courses offered at colleges are part of the problem.

http://investmentwatchblog.com/20-completely-ridiculous-college-courses-being-offered-at-u-s-universities/


Here are some of the names of the courses listed in the article above:

What if Harry Potter is Real?
God, Sex, Chocolate: Desire and the Spiritual Path
Gaga for Gaga
Lady Gaga and the Sociology of Fame
Philosophy and Star Trek

And we wonder why kids can't get jobs and move back home after college.

Since tax dollars are increasingly used to subsidize student loans and defaulting students should we expect universities to do a better job of educating students?

I don't know, I wouldn't mind being a graduate of Starfleet Academy.

I know!! That would be super cool!

But they don't use money in Star Trek world.

Speaking of that, I'm going solo to see the new Star Trek movie tonight since my family of men/boys are going to minor league baseball tonight.

They may be preparing the students for the changing job market.....

Maybe they should get a new crystal ball....

Or just teach reading and writing...)

Go forward a few years with all these new qualifications, and meet your new (intelligent) White House staff




Come to think of it, I think that is actually live footage from the White House that was taken today

If they really want to prepare students for the real life job market, they need to have courses in things like...

Burger Preparation
How to get a job in government
Banking - Respecting your masters
Monsanto - The only right way is the Monsanto way
Proper use and storage of food stamps
Proper protesting surrender techniques
How to cleanse pepper spray from your eyes while in handcuffs
How to survive police brutality

And my favourite course...

Rights? Who needs 'em?
