The NY Post has reported that New York University, one of America’s most prestigious universities will be offering a freshman seminar where the students play Guitar Hero.
The article states that prof. Gary Marcus plans on calling the course “Guitar Heroes (and Heroines): Music, Video Games and the Nature of Human Cognition.” (NY Post)
As if the ridiculousness of offering college credit for playing Guitar Hero wasn’t enough, it should be noted that the tuition per year for NYU is about $50,000.
The least surprising part of the article? There’s already a waiting list to take the course. Who didn’t see that coming?
