15 strange college courses

Didn’t have anything like these classes when I was in school, but I would have signed up for all of these. 

Tiny Centre College makes their second appearance on our list, this time with a class focusing on contemporary epics. Students not only study Stars Wars, The Matrix, and The Lord Of The Rings, they also discuss television shows like Star Trek, Stargate, Dr. Who, The X-Files, and Babylon 5. The course weds these modern day tales to classical myths, showing that many of the narrative devices and patterns employed then are still used in today’s epics.

Also?  Underwater basket weaving is an actual class, not just a euphemism for this class is retardedly easy.  It’s offered at Reed College right here in Portland.
