I’m sure they are still preparing their course on the Tea Party and why it began in 2009. Yeah, I’ll be holding my breath:
(MRC) – While it may sound like a joke, and New York City website Gothamist reported it with plenty of snark, New York University will offer a class next semester on Occupy Wall Street (possibly two). Perhaps it’s an attempt to keep their students in class making use of their students loans, rather than camped out in Zuccotti Park and other parks complaining about them.
NBC’s “protest of the current era,” will now become a for-credit undergraduate course. The College Board lists per credit hour tuition at $1,159 at NYU.
According to the free student newspaper of NYU: Washington Square News (WSN), the university’s “Department of Social and Cultural Analysis” will offer a class about the “history and politics of debt and take a deeper look at the economic crisis the movement is protesting.” NYU confirmed with the Business & Media Institute that the undergraduate course: “Cultures and Economies: Occupy Wall Street” will be available next semester and taught by Professor Lisa Duggan.
