Six Nerdy Classes You Can Take in College

When you're in college you have to take a ton of prerequisite classes before you can take classes in your major or fun classes, but at some colleges they just like to give you credit for learning about what you love.

The eight following classes are taught in real schools across the country and if you are already planning your next semester's schedule then you might want to include these ones:

1. Spongbobology

Where: Oberlin Experimental College

What's Taught: This class requires students to have an ability to enjoy the silliness of Spongebob Squarepants, but to also explain what's really going on in the show. You get to watch early season of Spongebob which we can all agree were the best.

2. Parasites as Literary Protagonists - Mind Control, Emasculation, and Egg Sacks

Where: Cornell University

3. The Fantastical World of Japanese Anime
