[buffer by="20px 0 0"][dropcap letter=W]e all have our favorite subjects in college. English? Okay. Film? Cool. Philosophy 101? Awesome. But sometimes, just sometimes, we get the sinking feeling we aren’t getting the classes we need and deserve to get by in life. Don’t we all wish our classes had more to offer, giving us a more fulfilling (and fun) stay in college? Here are 8 classes they really ought to offer for college students![/buffer]

There are local universities that hold classes on Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. Why shouldn’t we have classes on fictional languages like Klingon, Elvish and Dothraki?

How it would help you: You will now laugh along with all the Klingon jokes in The Big Bang Theory, watch the elves in Lord of the Rings with no subs and understood why the Dothraki do not have a word for “thank you.” You would also make your friends take this subject and you would’ve used either one—or all three—as your secret language. Awkwardly nerdy flirting ensues afterwards.

[buffer by=15px]
Best taken in your freshman year, this class would’ helped you recognize your motivations and understand your inclinations in making decisions.

How it would help you: You would learn that if you’re going to shift, you better not wait until your third year to do so. You would figure out where you want to go and what that you want to do in life sooner. The more scatterbrained you are, the more useful this class is to you.

A class that differentiates Punk from Emo, Hipster from Seapunk, etc, etc. and teaches you 1) where you belong, and 2) how to deal with each and every one of them.

How it would help you: You wouldn’t have to keep asking your future officemates to explain what a hipster looks like again while you play with the scarf you chose to wear in the middle of summer. Ironically.

What is a Bakunawa? If you don’t know, there should’ve really been a class like this. It teaches our lore (pre- and post-colonialism) and our creatures like the bakunawa, the tikbalang, the tik-tik, the tyanak, etc, etc. because apparently, we have a lot of them.

How it would help you: Learning about our own tales would’ve cultivated a healthy appetite for making more comic books, more movies, more fiction based on the wonders of our own culture. Not to mention, you know what to scare your future kids with to make sure they behave.

[buffer by=15px]
You get to meet once every week in Zambales, Baler or Bicol to surf. You would learn words like “glassy,” “A-frame,” “barrel,” and of course, “shakabrah.”

How it would help you: There would be more legitimate surfers in this archipelago. It would be socially unacceptable for non-surfers to have photos taken posing next to a surf board.

One word: gayuma. Failing that, Rohypnol.

How it would help you: For when your cutesie-patootsie charms just aren’t cutting it anymore.

If you’re not the type of person who’d use gayuma to get the person of your dreams, this would’ve been the perfect class for you. Practical Dating would’ve taught you not just how to woe but also to open your ears and eyes to what your date really wants. Maybe she’s not the flowers and chocolates type, maybe she’s the quirky one liter of apple C2 Green Tea and crackers type? It’s a make or break move. You would’ve figured it out better if you had this class.

How it would help you: You wouldn’t give up so early. You would’ve dated more because it would’ve been fun.

There are specialized speech and communication classes but there’s none that teaches you how to get what you want. This class would teach you stealth, shrewdness, seduction and a very good sense of timing.

How it would help you: Maybe it hasn’t occurred to you, but you would totally have a lot of fun with learning the ability to pretty much Jedi Mind Trick everyone you want to do your bidding.
