25 Extremely Strange And Bizarre College Courses

College isn’t just for majoring in nursing; you can take some weird college courses, too. I’m reminded of a quote that said, “You can major in Gameboy, if you know how to bull—-.” In other words, smart people can make anything work. So, if you’re going to college, don’t be afraid of taking that weird college course. You can make it work! College isn’t just for boring lessons on Plato’s Cave. As it turns out, you can major and take college courses in all sorts of cool stuff, such as analyzing 2PAC lyrics and learning how to climb trees. So, before you think of taking the same old boring classes that actually provide valuable skills, check out these 25 Extremely Strange And Bizarre College Courses.

How to Win a Beauty Pageant


Technically, the full name of the course offered at Oberlin College is “How to Win a Beauty Pageant: Race, Gender, Culture, and U.S. National Identity.” We can see how there might be a lot of upset parents, though. Perhaps the course should be called “How to Win a Beauty Pageant, but we’re not miracle workers.”




Have you been told that you are the comedian of your friends? Then, this is the course for you. At Humber College you can actually major in comedy. Get those hand buzzers ready.


Elvish, the language of “Lord of the Rings”


At the University of Wisconsin you can let your nerdiness flow unhindered. We think this course is “precious.”
