Bizarre, useless college courses on the rise

LGBTQ on campusA conservative organization has just released its annual report of bizarre college courses – courses that would very unlikely benefit students in their careers after graduation.

Since 1995, the Young America's Foundation (YAF) has been publishing a list of outlandish course offerings at many of the nation's elite colleges, including courses with titles such as "Vampires: The Evolution of a Sexy Monster."

YAF Program Officer for Public Relations Spencer Brown contends that this is a departure from a fair and balanced education.

"I think it's really concerning today that students are paying hundreds of dollars per credit hour to take courses like 'Red Necks, Queers and Country Music,' and expect to learn things in those classes that will help them hold down a job in the real world," Brown maintained.

The education expert insists that most of these bizarre courses are designed to indoctrinate students with leftist ideology.

"Basically, what most of these courses go to is sort of building this movement of victimization of young people today, where telling them that it's not up to them to be responsible for their own success in life,” Brown asserted. “They're always going to be a victim of someone else's decisions."

YAF's Comedy and Tragedy survey provides a complete list of colleges surveyed. OneNewsNow covered many more crazy college courses in a recent commentary by guest columnist Dr. Frank Turek.
