[livejournal.com profile] donutsweeper posted a set of "Five Times" Supernatural stories which detail Five Ways Dean Did Not Become a Hunter. The first drabble, At his grandfather's knees, is my favourite, but the third, Graduating summa cum laude with a degree in Hunting Science, is proving a terrible, terrible distraction from my own academics.

Required courses for Hunting Science would include Latin I and II, Introduction to Critical Mythology, History of Hunting, and a fourth year Advanced Seminar in Hunting Methodology. Electives might include an Ethics class (you know I'm thinking of Sam), a media studies crosslist called "Bump in the Night: The Supernatural in Popular Culture", and some sort of mythology crosslist. It's the small sort of program that would rely heavily on cross-lists for its electives.

The program-in-my-head has a definitely social sciences slant, which is no surprise given my own background. I also feel that a more practical approach would belong in a college setting (using the Canadian definition of college), though I suppose it could also be comparable to a professional degree.

Just so you know, you've pretty much just made my night with your discussion of Hunting Science.

What do you think? Anatomy and Guide to Slaying courses go in, or get saved for a more practical, less theoretical program?

your descriptions of hunting science as an academic programme ACTUALLY MADE MY MOUTH WATER.

Do you think Sam could have run away to study this at university and still made his daddy (openly) proud, or would a social science approach have been TOO PANSY?
