BC University offering: The Simpsons as Sociology? D'oh!
Barry Artiste, Now Public Contributor
You know for a minute I thought this was a joke, then I realised Silly me, I live in British Columbia, where the joke is a University which recently got it's University accredation.
Only in British Columbia, where a real BC University Simon Fraser University is forced to cut courses, double their class size and layoff staff due to budget constraints, but this University of Fraser Valley (No Relation) seems to have Students Parents Course Tuition cash to burn.
Certainly University College of the Fraser Valley (UCFV) will rank up there in Academia with Costa Rican Diploma Mills and other ludicrous Universities which remain questionable by Employers who seek Real University Graduates from Legitimate Universities.
Again, only in British Columbia. To that, I too say D'oh !!
The Simpsons as sociology? D'oh! Course is so popular at University of Fraser Valley that there's a waiting list.

ABBOTSFORD - It's every parent's worst nightmare. You shell out good money to send your kid to university, only to find out he is spending his days watching cartoons.
Some lucky B.C. students have done just that this year, spending course hours studying The Simpsons.
The University College of the Fraser Valley, which just two days ago was granted university status and renamed University of the Fraser Valley, will be offering the course, Sociology of The Simpsons, again next year.
