The 11 Coolest University Courses You Never Knew Existed
ICYMI Beyoncé fans, the University of Texas in San Antonio is now offering a class on all things Lemonade. Titled Black Women, Beyoncé & Popular Culture, the course was developed by Professor Kinitra D. Brooks, an associate professor at University of Texas who specializes in contemporary African-American and Afro-Caribbean literature and black feminism. Here’s our fave part from the syllabus:
“You do not have to be the smartest, most well read student in the university. You do not have to be the best writer. You do not have to be a member of the Beyhive. I simply ask that you are willing to be uncomfortable–to have your thoughts and ideas challenged–and then to work/read/write your way through that un-comfortability in order to become a stronger critical thinker.”
Maybe you’ve been out of school for a couple of years, but there are actually a lot of cool university and college courses (Harry Potter! Mad Men! Mean Girls!) that would have anybody begging to go back to the exam days. Dreamed about studying Miley Cyrus? There’s a course for that. Obsessed with Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones and Hunger Games? There are classes for all of those, FYI.
