A professor at Northwestern is now offering a class on Mad Men. Between this and the class on Lady Gaga, I’m beginning to think that maybe Old Kanye was right.

  1. It’s a shame it’s being offered at the same time as my class on Mike and Molly.

  2. At the culmination of the course, students will receive their B.A. (Bad Ass) degree.

    • That reminds me of that one Gil Scot Heron poem where he talks about how all the black youth are trying to get their “BA” on, but really they just run away every time their “Black Ass” is in danger.

      He was black, so its okay.

      Man i am racisty today. Shut up me.

    • Yes, I have a Bachelor of the Arts in Bad Assery, Graduated Cum Laude

    • I actually, no joke, wrote my senior thesis on Mad Men. And now my B.A. has qualified me to work as a Ba(dass)arista at Starbucks!

  3. “you need the latest version of flash player to play this video”

  4. If you get drunk and abuse women does that count as extra credit?

  5. There’s class, and then there’s CLASS.

  6. If it involves staring for hours at the Joan Holloway gif that teacherman posted yesterday, then I already have tenure.

  7. I’ve been waiting for the day I could call my alcoholism, “research for my thesis”

  8. “Although Allen has high praise for the show, he added that it does have some shortcomings:
    ‘I don’t think it fully addresses the complexity of race and ethnicity in the early 1960s.’”


  9. Will they be grading on a curve?

  10. “Shut the door. Have a seat. Please take out your syllabus and turn to the section marked ‘Week 2′. As you can see, we will be going over….”

  11. I would like to enroll in the Bachelor of Videogum program, please.

  12. This coming winter semester there’s a class at the University of Michigan that requires watching the first three seasons.


  13. This Mad Men course sounds like the cure for the common semester to me amirite?

  14. On a related note, I picked up the first 3 seasons on dvd from Best Buy on Black Friday for $30. Can’t wait to rewatch.
