Star Trek – GeorgeTown University in Washington Report Abuse
While technically considered a class to discuss the philosophy found in Star Trek…it’s more likely some really smart Trekkies pulled a fast one on the Dean.

Parapsychology – various colleges Report Abuse
This degree dedicated to the study of paranormal might come in handy, except for the fact that anyone with a camera can pass themselves off as a paranormal investigator…and well the Ghostbusters are full up.

Nature of Religious Experience Report Abuse
This course was called by the students "Spooks" and is no longer offered, but was preivously taught by a Francian Priest who had preformed exerocisms and taught students about the supernatural. Kind of cross between "Ghostbusters" and "The Exerocist" and the few sections were always closed quickly as a favorite to complete the Theological credit requirements @ St. Bonaventure University

Hello! Religion is about the supernatural. This seems like a normal course offering at a Catholic school. BTW, that would be Franciscan priest, a member of the Order of St. Francis, not Francian Priest, and performed exorcisms, not preformed exerocisms.

The Science Of Harry Potter – Frostburg University Report Abuse
While this class actually does some work, (it is considered a physics class where students study the “magic” in the Harry Potter World), we’re pretty sure that there are other ways of proving that brooms cannot fly on their own.
