Many universities have offered various courses in the realm of nerdery, ranging from Star Wars to Harry Potter to Lord of the Rings and many others. The mere existence of these courses is enough to warrant universal creaming across the nerd community.
But here comes the cherry-popper: Dundee University in Scotland is introducing an MA in comic studies this coming September with the option to continue and earn a PhD after completing the one-year Master’s program.
Some particularly devoted nerds (I say that in the most loving way possible) can actually become doctors of nerdery.
Graduates on the course will study the impact of comics on the worlds of art, literature and popular culture.
“This is a unique opportunity to give this important medium the attention it deserves, and to allow those with an interest in comics to study it in detail.”
