College is a time for learning, a time for growing and, of course, a time to take all those cool classes you couldn’t take in high school because some stuffy board member says it’s not important for your education. Having trouble getting units? We scoured the course catalogs of numerous colleges and selected the courses we think are least likely to put you to sleep during lecture.
By Tanya Ghahremani actually be better for the women to take, if not only to gain perspective on men and their…well, manliness. If you really want to know the origins of men becoming “men,” this class will give you some background on the testosterone-enhanced subject.

Spider-Man fan, this one is all about comic books, so you’ll actually have a viable excuse for spending all your free time reading them. Plus, comic books are trendier than ever now – geek chic? Accepted, Animal House, Old School, etc. – you should know that the real college life is nothing like that. For one, Tara Reid probably doesn’t attend your school. Anyway, this class is pretty much about how college is portrayed in pop culture…and you take it while you’re actually in college. Trippy right?

student’s dream to watch their favorite shows for class credit. At USC, that dream has become a reality – complete with the opportunity to sit in on interviews with directors, writers, and performers from a variety of wellknown shows (past guests include The Queen herself, Helen Mirren!) There is a $50 fee for taking the class, but the perks seem well worth it.
CTCS 467 teleVIsIoN symPosIUm usc: It’s almost every college MUSC 422 the beatles: theIR mUsIc aND theIR tImes usc: With well-known hits like “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and “Hey
Jude,” The Beatles is one of the most influential bands in history – undoubtedly recognizing this, USC offers a class dedicated to their impact on society. Ever wonder what the social ramifications of “All You Need Is Love” are? Or, what instrument was used in the opening of “Strawberry Fields Forever” (and, on that note, what the spoken words at the end of that song are)? Students of this class learn that and more!
