Study StarCraft For College

Yeah, you read it right! And no, no one is kidding!

Students in UC - Berkeley can take up StarCraft studies for college credits. The only thing the students could want in addition to this is a Blizzard sponsorship and playing around in StarCraft II!

Read all about this marvellously educating college course (that WILL give you college credits)!

Course Description:
UC Berkeley students with an interest in real-time strategy games and the competitive gaming landscape are encouraged to participate in this class.

This course will go in-depth in the theory of how war is conducted within the confines of the game Starcraft. There will be lecture on various aspects of the game, from the viewpoint of pure theory to the more computational aspects of how exactly battles are conducted.

Ace! I love starcraft and would surely get an A!

Leord3221d ago

Yeah, if only all courses had this enthralling topics...

Bnet3433221d ago

Wish they had this at my college. I'd get straight A's on these.

Terrice3221d ago

Haha, me too. Its a shame they weren't offering this back when I was still studying.

I knew the world of academia was expanding in many directions, but lecturing on a computer game is a new one on me.

Wonder if it'll be popular or not.

Leord3221d ago

Well, apparently they had an interview with the lecturer. I assume we'll get more details on this later on...

Actually, I went to Cal and took a class on competitive fighting games such as Street Fighter and King of Fighters. The credits don't go towards graduation and is merely given for the sake of giving credit unless you need it to fulfill the minimum units for full time student. The class is held by another student, but gives students the ability to hold oddball classes for fun! It is a great idea!

Lol, we never had one of these:
