Who comes up with these, anyway?

Written by

Course registration starts next week! Watch out, kids–catchy class title can be deceptive…but they do make planning your schedule a lot more entertaining. Bwog staffer Alec Turnbull combed through the Bulletin for the best of Fall 2007.

  1. actually  

    summer course registration starts next week.
    fall course registration is actually a week from monday, for rising seniors.

  2. CJS  

    remember your elders, whose wisdom begets such ideas.

  3. Lydia  

    Credit duly given. All hail Mr. Szabla, for the best unsolicited gossip ever.

  4. I don't get it  

    Is this supposed to be funny? A lot of these classes make sense.

  5. MOOP  

    some of the course titles from before were really out there...this year they seemed to have toned it down, probably because it makes the school seem soft when they have ridiculous titles. I still like "THE BEAUTIFUL SEA."

  6. dude  

    Actually, #4, they ALL make sense. But they seem funny at first blush. I mean, come on, Game Theory? Sure, I know it's wicked hard and Nash and von Neumann made leaps of intellectual endeavour that I can't even begin to understand, but that doesn't rob me of the simple pleasure of giggling a little bit when I picture people playing Monopoly for a semester. And for classes I don't know anything about (Poor Liza Poor Olga Poor Me), I have an even funnier mental picture. Lighten up.

  7. vlad the impaler  

    POOR LIZA, POOR OLGA, POOR ME - Russian V3333

    takes the fucking cake!!!

  8. can we  

    get something for science haters?

  9. even better  

    contextualization of contexts. it's a grad class for sociology.
