37 Examples of Real College Courses That Are Too Crazy to Believe


 

 

While we hear how college kids are outraged at the burden of huge debts that will take them years to pay off, few are as outraged about the courses being taught. The nonsense of Antifa and the diminishing of free speech by conservatives, one has to ask what are our children getting out of a college education? Here are a few snippets:

You just can’t make this stuff up.

All over America we push our young people to get good grades so that they can get “a college education”, but then once they get through college many of our young people are completely unequipped to deal with the real world.

I am about to share with you a list of 37 of the most ridiculous courses that are currently being offered at major U.S. colleges and universities today.  This information comes from a brand new report that was just put out by Young America’s Foundation, and it is tempting to chuckle as you read through what they have compiled, but the truth is that what is happening to our system of higher learning is not a laughing matter.  The following is a short excerpt from the report

    Actually Medieval Sexuality was a rather fascinating talk. I have seen lectures posted on YouTube. HOW sexuality was regulated and allowed to be expressed was quite different. They covered extant writings, church doctrine, laws, fashion, artwork, and food; all of these had a bearing or were an outcome of prevailing ideas on sexuality just as they are now. Other than that those courses look to be a bunch of bunk.

    I can tell you with utmost certainly that these are real. A couple of semesters ago I had to take a course titled Minority Cultures, it ended up bashing “White Privilege” and how the poor Africans are at a disadvantage, pro Black Lives Matter, Anti Trump and so on. Just saying. The professor once told me to shut up and that is how it is and I better get with the times. Although I passed the final with a A+ and had a running B+, He lowered my grade to a C+ because the last question on the final was our beliefs on the class. By that time, I had had enough of being politically correct. Did l earn to keep my mouth shut? No. And I won’t. Way to much running amuck with my tax dollars and my tuition.

      Here in NJ my son with a B.A. and a Masters degree and already teaching autistic and special ed students four years in a private school was required to sit in a community college classroom evenings for eight weeks while an 80+ year old professor slept. Together with a $2200 registration fee it cost us, not any gov’t program, $6800. Now with two masters in music he just completed a two year course, ON LiNE, at a cost to us of $22,000 so he may teach special ed in public schools. When one is a white male there is no Santa Claus. On line, no brick and mortar, no instructor, $22,000! But mercifully no black history course included in the curriculum. Our state marketing motto: NJ and You, Perfect Together.

        That is why I took myself out of the Education program, and went directly into the History program. NY is the same as NJ. All about the money.

    I appreciate my Mother-in-Law more than I ever have before

    She was in the Education Profession in Administration

    When my Son went off to College she guided his selection of courses

    …she had my blessing on that!

    My Son has his degree in Finance and an excellent job…Amen

    Reblogged this on Brittius and commented:
    Disgraceful, plain and simple, that such stupidity occupies colleges. Bring back the military draft and end deferments. That would be a real course in life, and the world.
