University could add Facebook course to English curriculum
A university in India is planning on adding ‘Facebook post writing’ to its English curriculum.
Meaning people could literally soon be paying for a degree in which they’re learning to write a status or wall post.
And despite few people actually calling Facebook posts ‘literature’, Delhi University, which is among India’s premier universities, has big plans.
According to the Hindustan Times, students will also be taught to write blogs, cover letters and proof read as part of the ‘skill enhancement course’.
The idea to introduce the new classes was proposed by the English department’s choice-based credit system core committee.
