A pop education

After reading From Monty Python to Mother Mary: Nine Weird Classes Offered at ASU This Fall, Darren finds only one Arizona State class that’s “absolutely worthless.”

WST 394, Desperate Housewives: Gender, Family & Pop Culture
A women’s studies class that examines the fictional lives of the wealthy homemakers of Wisteria Lane …

I’m dubious about Harry Potter: Gender, Race & Class, also in Women’s Studies.

And, as a former English major, I wonder about this upper-level English class:

ENG 375: FOX Network, Atlantic Records, Independent Record Labels
Explores leading CEOs and corporations from a humanities perspective.

As Darren writes, taking one offbeat class isn’t a big deal. But you’d think today’s students would be more careful with their tuition dollars — even if largely borrowed — and their time in college.
