(Newser) – Lady Gaga: Worthy of a college class? Apparently so, at least according to the University of Virginia. (For more on “GaGa for Gaga: Sex, Gender, and Identity,” click here.) The Frisky rounds up eight more college courses that sound insane…in a good way:

  • Zombies: At the University of Baltimore, English 333 is actually a course on the undead. Students will watch 16 zombie movies and read comics, too.
  • Wine Tasting: Really, it’s a class on wine tasting. Do you need to hear anything else?

  • Underwater Basket Weaving: You probably thought that course was just a joke, right? Apparently the University of California at San Diego actually offers it.
  • Comics: Oregon State University found a fun way to teach entomology: by relating it to the popular comic series The Far Side.
