As a module in a degree I would think it would be both sustainable and interesting. But basing a degree/masters around it would be stretching it IMO.

Certificate for $26!

To be fair, course content would fit in nicely into a media studies course and imo would be a welcome addition.

Surprised that they can produce the optional and additional certificate for a mere 26 bucks. Maybe you don't talk to a live person? Computer generated?

I would say you are right. Probably all online and very "no frills" too I would imagine.

I'm sure lectures and study materials would be available online. Best way to do it really.

Reminds me of a couple of free edX classes I want to take, but not in meme studies, the latter being fun.
