The HURL hits keep rolling 

Just out from your Department of the 3.7 GPA, another new course proposal that should be thrown into evidence of where current higher education is going.
HURL 408/508 Global Human Relations. A global study of racism, sexism, heterosexism, class issues, and the interrelationships of global social justice issues.
Well, sure, a global study. (Don't) Think globally, act (like an ass) locally or something like that. But if you read the other courses, this looks the same as the five we reviewed last week. What's new? Let's visit the course outline. Again, this is advocacy masquerading as academic work, at a public university in a state cutting its higher education budget. And they wonder why people won't pay more for it?
