Indiana-Oberlin University (IOU)
Course Syllabus
Typical Gen-Ed Liberal Arts Course 101
Spring 2016: January 5 – Till Fucking Forever

Course Description

Over the course of the semester, we will take an up-close and in-depth look at the broadest, most mundane aspects of a topic that has nothing to do with your major while expanding the mind through the memorization of key buzzwords like “trigger” and “synergy” and “eudaimonia.” Oh, and you better believe there’s gonna be a fuck-ton of Communication Models, too. So many Communication Models.

Course Objectives

To provide you with severely limited insight into a potential career path through hands-on PowerPoints and YouTube videos.

To offer a personal touch only attainable in a lecture hall full of 500 students.

To leave you as uninspired and clueless as possible, forcing you to take a major you switch out of junior year so the university can milk four more semester of tuition out of your aching teats.

To indoctrinate you into the hive mind of guilt and PC culture with graphs depicting the gender wage gap and unemployment rates of minorities.

To teach you how to analyze the knowledge, skills, attributes, and tools necessary to take the $5,000 course fee and fuck yourself in the face with it.


For all examinations, students will be graded upon their ability to memorize, regurgitate, and forget.

Essays will be graded in strict accordance with the professor’s political and social opinions.*

*Course Note: If you are a fat girl who writes about the struggles of being a fat girl, you will receive an automatic “A.”


Class will meet Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 6 a.m.

Even though all the material can be found on the PowerPoints online, attendance will account for 50 percent of your overall grade (the egomaniac professor has all sorts of eye-opening team-building exercises that are just too important to miss).

Missing more than three classes will result in an automatic “F.”

Class Participation

To receive full class participation credit, students are expected to sit in the front of the room and chime in whenever possible — as long as their beliefs coincide with those of the instructor (see “grading”). Be sure to close your eyes while speaking like a smug turdnugget and include phrases like “per se” or “in a very real sense.”


Class will meet on the opposite side of campus in Room BCDR165342 of Sacagawea Hall, across the bridge that feces-throwing vagrant lives under.

Parking is available to all upperclassmen with blue stickers and green passes who were born in the Year of the Dog according to the Chinese Zodiac.

Code of Ethics

IOU has a zero-tolerance policy in regards to cheating.*
