As college students, most of us are required to take general courses like calculus and biology. But after these are taken care of, we get the freedom to explore other subjects that we’re actually interested in. Elective classes are usually associated with fun and intrigue…some a little more than others. What if you could take “The Science of Superheroes,” or “Zombies in Popular Media?!” Believe it or not, some students have these course titles listed on their transcripts. Once again, HC has rounded up the craziest college classes from around the nation. Check out this article for our picks from last year’s course catalog. Read on and prepare for major college class envy!

How would you like to study the sticky, sweet stuff you drizzle on your morning pancakes? At Alfred University, students can take a seminar all about maple syrup! The course description says, “This class will explore the history of maple syrup production, discover the ins and outs of making syrup, create (and eat) some sweet confections, and take field trips to local producers, restaurants and festivals.” What could be sweeter than that?
