Colleges and universities across the nation are offering some offbeat courses in an effort to attract students.
Here are some of the unusual classes found by Fox News:
- “The Joy of Garbage” at Santa Clara University
- “The Science of Superheroes” at University of California at Irvine
- “A History of the Pig in America” at Xavier University
- “Zombies in Popular Media” at Columbia College
- “The Zoo: Conservation, Education and Recreation” at California State University’s Channel Islands campus
- “Media & Society: Fake News, Politics & Public Policy” at New York University
- “Kitchen Ecology” at Hampshire College
- “The Final Four Experience” at Lynn University
Supporters of these unusual classes say they are a good way to teach subjects that students might not normally be interested in. But other people say the offbeat classes are just a waste of time and money.
