Real Class: Getting dressed seems pretty self-explanatory, but there’s an actual college course about it at Princeton.

Can I Fry That?

Real Class: Even though this seems like a class the television-obsessed Abed would be into, or the ex-lawyer Jeff would teach, it’s real.

Theoretical Phys Ed

Tree Climbing

Nominal Ascertainment

Is this course about learning the names of things, or how to remember someone’s name? Who knows! What we do know is that the show Community makes learning look fun.
