Top 10 Classes to Take at UW-Madison in Spring 2017

It’s that time again, UW-Madison students! Time to enroll in classes for another semester at this wonderful institution dictatorially shaped by Governor Scott Walker. Regardless of your major, there are some classes you’ll want to look out for this fall – all of which have incredible reviews, great professors and teach practical wisdom. One of them is even real! The Black Sheep UW-Madison’s course guide begins below.

10.) Folklore 341: How to Bullshit Your Way Through College Using Folklore:

This class is for the committed bullshitter. We’ve all had those situations where we had to turn in an assignment late, didn’t want to do homework, or making it to class was like, literally, SO hard. Using the English language and advanced storytelling techniques, you’ll learn methods to make your carefully-contacted emails even more eloquent.

9.) Population Health Sciences 120: Living with a Roommate:

UW-Madison once considered this class a requirement for all freshmen. We’ve all lived with difficult roommates at one point, so why not use this Social Sciences breadth requirement to learn how to do so better! Methods discussed include passive-aggressiveness, tactics for stealing food, and game theory of the thermostat.

8.) Dance 107: Drunk Dance:

7.) Dairy Science 601: Colloquium on Cheese:

A class only offered at UW-Madison and UW-Platteville, this career colloquium looks at those working in the cheese industry and how they go about their work. For your final, you’ll go to a farm and drink milk straight from the udder. This class is sure to be an enriching and engaging experience for all involved.

5.) General Business 666: The Art of the Deal:
