How come you can understand the concept but others can't?

This is turning into an oxymoron
No it's not.

You want to show a source for a degree in Madonna...?
Or are you just making this up?

I will re-iterate my thesis that "mickey mouse" (or should I up-date to "Sonic the Hedgehog") subjects are actually more worthwhile to life and employment in the 21st Century than the likes of maths & history.

I'll also re-invite creative thought into what might be useful new courses that old-fashioned people will call "mickey mouse".

Household managment (since more and more women work alongside men).
Sports managment (ie for a football side) should become a university course.

Will edit as i think of more

Not necessarily; courses such as history and maths can be very useful - particularly maths with machinery/technology etc.
History I can't think of a particular use for, but there must be some.

All courses have their uses and are important.

I think that most if not all subjects can be beneficial to somebody. We aren't all able to go to top universities and study traditional subjects, so I admire those looking to do something a bit more diverse that theywill enjoy

That was how tabloids dubbed a course "The role of 20th century icons" In the late 90s

It is referred to here.

I'd be interested in an A-level in humour, seriously.

You could have made this thread SO much easier to understand...

And I don't do any MM subjects, except DT at GCSE.

And before all of you say Philosophy is a MM subject, it isn't, it is just BS and is very boring. It is also a "generally acceptable" subject on Trinity College, Cambridge's website.

We already have sports psychology courses, but we can't even get into the Euro footie.
I guess it's not what you teach it's who you teach.

We need to win, now we are managed by an Italian . . are they well known for winning ? (don't mention the war).
