So UC Berkeley offers “decals”, which are student-taught classes. The classes (they’re legitimate classes too! You get real credits, you have to do homework, there’s a final project, etc.) are AMAZING, and have to do with topics that students want to learn about, including but not limited to:
- Batman as American Mythology
- Disney & Our Daily Lives
- Cliches and Transgressions of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (BtVS)
- Vital Information For Your Everyday Life: Children’s Television of the 90’s
- Thirst: Water and International Human Rights
- UNICEF: Awareness of Children in the Developing World
I personally took Harry Potter and the Chamber of Analysis and Speedcubing: The Art of Solving a Rubik’s Cube (which is the advanced class - My record is 34 seconds). Either way, they have some REALLY INTERESTING classes, whether to do with culture or politics or skill-learning (there’s an archery class and a guitar class, etc.).
AND IT JUST SO HAPPENS, IN THE YEAR AFTER I GRADUATE, THEY START OFFERING DOCTOR WHO CLASSES.
REALLY, BERKELEY? REALLY? YOU COULDN’T HAVE OFFERED THAT WHILE I WAS STILL A STUDENT?
