Young America's Foundation Exposes 12 "Absurd" College Courses

The Washington Times is reporting about a forthcoming report on the "most ridiculous college courses" produced by Young America's Foundation. The article reveals the so-called Dirty Dozen: the twelve courses from colleges across America that they consider the most egregious wastes of time and money.

One aspect of the report worth investigating is how many of the courses deemed absurd by the study are found at RPI and technological universities like it? Parents with college-bound children need to think carefully about issues like this. Won't your money be better spent by sending your son or daughter to Rensselaer?

The YAF is a conservative political organization dedicated to promoting the ideas of "individual freedom, a strong national defense, free enterprise, and traditional values". Whether you agree with them politically or not, the Dirty Dozen list and the report that it is drawn from are, as the Washington Times said, "a heads-up for parents who may have no clue what their children are studying".
