If rumors turn out to be true, fall 2009 courses could include:
- Hooters Sociology of Feminism
- Schlitz Malt Liquor Cultural Anthropology Seminar
- Trojan Religious Studies 260: Catholic Literature and Philosophy

“I never thought of taking a women’s studies class before,” said CCSF sophomore Christopher Pfiessler. “Now, I can’t wait. I must be maturing.”
