College Offers Class in Stupidity — Hilarious or Horrifying?

It's about time we took a smart look at stupidity. Occidental College is offering a critical psychology course on the topic of dumbness. Get a load of this excerpt from course description — which, by the way, misspells "Beavis":

Stupidity, which has been evicted from the philosophical premises and dumbed down by psychometric psychology, has returned in the postmodern discourse against Nation, Self, and Truth and makes itself felt in political life ranging from the presidency to Beevis and Butthead.

It's definitely not the craziest college course I've ever heard of, but it's still pretty out there. What do you think?

It sounds interesting to me. I would take it as a college credit. Couldn't be any worse than a religion course or some of those other humanities classes you have to take.

If you read the course description, nothing is 'dumbed' down. It's probably not a required class, so it's your money, your choice.

This post here makes it sounds worse then it looks on the website. I think it's just self learning and being more socially aware looks good.

I just feel that with college tuition rising so insanely over the past decade, they shouldn't be offering classes that are not really contributing to the education of the students. Unless this somehow ties in with a particular major, it doesn't seem to fit in with the Gen. Ed. requirements.

I might take it, if it were offered. I don't know how much I would gain from the course, but then again, I could say the same thing about my entire college education.
