What would you teach?

September 2, 2014

Yippee, yippee it's school tiiiiiime! That means that crunchy leaves and football games and dry shampoo are right around the corner! I'm taking three classes this semester, which is considered "full-time" for my program. This results in 9 hours of class time per week (which sounds low, but somehow....it just ends up eating up your evening/day). This semester I'm taking:
  • Nonprofit Finance
  • Strategic Planning
  • Organizational Theory
Am I the only one who just loved the long course titles? I swear you could have convinced me to be a Timbuktu Studies major just by cleverly worded course titles. Hyphens in the title? Even better. Multiple adjectives? Sign me up. I still have the course guide from undergrad and get a good laugh out of all the juicy, juicy titles they came up with. We had courses like French Lit 440: Humanity and History in French Holocaust Literature, The Role of the Feminist Psyche in English Literature, 1920-1935 and The Religious Landscape of America: 100 Years. Mmmm long titles.

If I could teach any class, I think I would teach:
  • Phil-ing in the Blanks: The Role of Philanthropy in American Exceptionalism
  • From Carrie to Mindy: The Sociology of Modern Dating in TV-driven, Multi-cultural America
  • The Anthropology of Marketing: Sell Your Story, Not Your Soul
Slash heyyyy those all sound like some book titles. Maybe I should start writing them and make some money, honey. Unfortunately, grad school has very short, straight-forward course titles. C'est la vie. 

What was your favorite class in school?

  1. I would teach Criminology or some sub-class in that area. My degrees are in Criminology and Criminal Justice. And, I have actually applied for teaching positions at community colleges. I think it would be awesome.

  2. I would teach Editing Skills, Political Science, or Russian. I am actually considering getting my Master's in Political Science so I can teach college. :)

  3. I miss college so much. I loved pouring over classes & scheduling them.

    I do teach haha. I teach 12th grade government.

  4. My favorite class in school was The Arab-Israeli conflict. I like long, descriptive titles too.


Your comments make my day! Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.
