This Exists: UChicago’s Jersey Shore Studies Class

Think of this as revenge for every Advanced Theory Of Physics And Boringness class you were ever forced to take in college. Now, college students at the University of Chicago can study something that they'll actually encounter (kind of) in real life. The Jersey Shore. Yes, friends, a legitimate university is breaking down the inner workings and mysterious success of MTV's current cash cow. The best part? You don't have to be in college to attend! It's free and open to the public, and our bets are on a full house. Are you intrigued by this phenomenon? Go back to school! Bring a pen, paper (wait—are they using laptops now?), and an attention span. Sigh, the kids these days don't know how good they've got it. (The UChicago Conference on Jersey Shore Studies)
