In lieu of posting anything of real substance, due to time shortage, I give you a rather strange anecdote. At UGA (my alma mater and Hannah's current school) the religion department is rather small, and there are not a whole lot of religion classes for the graduate students to take. Hannah is in an undergraduate religion class (a whole other interesting post. . . ) for an elective, and her graduate student instructor was telling the class that graduate religion students have essentially infinite flexibility of options when choosing a concentration for their religion major, due to the shortage of grad classes offered. Here are two rather bizarre emphases:
One grad student has chosen a religion major with an emphasis on religious rites of passage that involve tatooing.
Another grad student has chosen a religion major with a focus on television depictions of religious rituals that involve the smashing of pumpkins.
Yep, and they're actually getting letters after their names for that! Ah, the great bastion that is our public higher education system. . .
