Kansas Wesleyan announces two new majors for Fall
In last week’s department meeting, Kansas Wesleyan officials announced a few new majors that will be added to the new catalog. Starting next year, KWU will be offering two unique majors to students to help them into a more modern day society.
The first major announced was a Zombie Apocalypse major. “We hope to teach students the skills needed to survive, and take care of their communities in the case of the impending Zombie Apocalypse,” Steven Yeun, the department head for the new major commented on the issue. Yeun proves to be a great professor for the newest major after starring as Glenn Rhee in the popular “Walking Dead” series. “Glenn is dead, it’s sad, but that’s the situation,” Yeun told the Advance last week, “I have to move on and after playing this character for so long, I believe I am really knowledgeable on the topic and it’s a topic that really needs to be addressed.” The program hopes to introduce five new classes next semester.
The second major students will be able to add next fall is a Harry Potter major. The degree hopes to help students learn about the literary techniques and lifestyle of the wizarding world of Harry Potter. KWU was excited to hear that J.K Rowling is willing to teach the classes. “I do not fully understand what students would do with this degree,” Rowling told the Advance last week, “however, if there is going to be a major, I should teach it.” Students looking to partake in the Harry Potter major will not be able to take any Potter themed classes until next spring but will have the opportunity to get the general education and literature requirements out of the way in the fall.
Students around campus seem to be super excited about the new degrees heading our way. “Not a lot of school’s offer a chance like this. I mean, I can kind of see why, but I’m excited for a zombie fighting class for sure!” an anonymous student said yesterday afternoon. All classes included in the two majors will be available to students outside the major who are looking to broaden their expertise in either of these fields.
