CLAREMONT, Calif. - Here's a dream-come-true for Web addicts: college credit for watching YouTube.

Pitzer College this fall began offering what may be the first course about the video-sharing site. About 35 students meet in a classroom but work mostly online, where they view YouTube content and post their comments.

Class lessons also are posted and students are encouraged to post videos. One class member, for instance, posted a 1:36-minute video of himself juggling.

Alexandra Juhasz, a media studies professor at the liberal arts college, said she was "underwhelmed" by the content on YouTube but set up the course, "Learning from YouTube," to explore the role of the popular site.

Class members control most of the class content and YouTube watchers from around the world are encouraged to comment, Juhasz said.

No wonder the workplace is full of incompetent fools with certificates.

"No wonder the workplace is full of incompetent fools with certificates."

I couldn't have put it any better.

I thought it would be fun to resurrect an ancient OP to see how things have changed over the years...

Skipping to modern times lets see some current college courses and degrees:

~ Doctorate of Philosophy in Ufology
~ Que*r Musicology
~ Golf Management
~ The Science of Harry Potter

Anyone?
