A College Curriculum on Your Bookshelf: 50 Books for 50 Classes

It’s officially back-to-school time, and we all know what that means: sitting in class, writing papers, getting sweet knowledge delivery before running off to the latest kegger. But what about a more practical method of study? Yes, in this case I am using the word “practical” to describe reading literature. What follows is a list of college courses (plucked or adapted from the course catalogs of actual institutions of higher learning) and works of literature that you might read to replicate the experience of taking them. Whether or not you’re headed back to school in the next few weeks, get your learning on with this curated curriculum of literature. [Disclaimer: not actually a substitute for a college education. But you knew that.]
