As an English major, I’ve come across many unique literature-related classes during my time in university. From Shakespeare to Mythology, there are many interesting classes that a normal college student like myself could take. However, in other universities, there are classes that push the boundaries of ‘interesting’ and become downright ‘weird’ (see: unique). Here is a list of classes that apparently exist in the Philippines:

10. Harry Potter Class – DLSU

If you’ve always wanted to experience going to Hogwarts. Now you actually can! Kind of. Join DLSU’s Harry Potter class, get sorted into your respective Hogwarts house, and delve inside the world of Harry Potter with this elective.

9. Porn Studies – UPD

Not for the faint of heart and mostly for those who are curious, Porn Studies is offered under the university’s College of Mass Communication. As a genre in and of itself, it’s no wonder that a whole class has been made just for pornography.

8. The Art of Walking – ADMU

Personally, I love walking. It’s not only good for the body but it’s good for the mind too. Learn all about it when you take this elective in Ateneo!

7. Sherlock Holmes Class – DLSU

Itching to do some sleuthing? The Sherlock Holmes class might just be for you! Put on your detective hat and do some detective-ing while also learning about Sherlock as a work of fiction.

6. Bird-watching Class – UPD

Bird-watching is something we often see in western films and media but did you know that the Philippines is home to a ton of different bird species? Not only is this class held outdoors but you’ll get to learn a lot about our feathered friends in the process.

5. Biology of Science Fiction – ADMU

Science Fiction has become its own behemoth of a genre in both literature and film. Why stop at watching your favorite Sci-Fi films when you can dissect the complexities of the genre you love indulging in?

4. Erotica Class – DLSU

Not to be confused with previously mentioned Porn Studies, Erotica class, we could only assume, is more about the actual act of sexual satisfaction. Bored? Curious? Sign up for this class and enter a whole new world.

3. Team Building (PE) – UPD

When we hear “team-building”, we immediately relate it to a company outing of sorts. We’re not sure what really goes down during this Team Building class, but if it’s anything like we’re imagining (aka full of games and quality bonding time), we’re sure it’s going to be a lot of fun.

2. Jane Austen Class – DLSU

When I first heard about this, my mind immediately went to the film Austenland where the main character goes to a house where they live and act like characters from Jane Austen’s novels. Of course, it didn’t occur to me that this could also just be about analyzing literature, but either way who’s to stop you from dressing up like a lady from the Regency era?

1. Game of Thrones Class – DLSU

*Game of Thrones theme song intensifies* Missing Game of Thrones? Why not sign up for a class that will take you back to Westeros and dive into Westerosi culture? Think about the Harry Potter class but GoT-ify it! Who’ll rule on the Iron Throne at the end of the semester? That’s totally up to you!
