Pop culture studies

There are colleges that offer classes about "Star Wars" or "Game of Thrones" (pictured left). But at Syracuse University, you can actually get a degree from the Bleier Center for Television & Popular Culture. The center is run by Dr. Robert Thompson, who the Associated Press said possesses "a font of pop culture knowledge like few others." The dean where Thompson teaches said: "I've seen Bob get 60, 70, 80 media calls in one day. I've seen him in a hallway on his cell phone for hours. You could go so far as to say Bob is the most quoted academic in the United States."
