There are many places of which memes are shared, mainly the Internet. If there were such a thing as to take a college course on memes, people who have a limited understanding on the topic can better comprehend the attitude of kids who consider memes a part of their life. Places such as /r/me_irl are chock-full of memes, and a lot of people whom I showed memes to did not understand their context. Maybe a college course on memes can help them understand the Great Fish Meme War of 2015-2016, or even old memes such as the Battletoads meme. It will also remove the incorrect memes used on Facebook, which is a plus.
I think not because who wants to know what memes mean what they are suppose to be funny not something we need to learn about its pointless to have a whole class on something most people don't even look at for more than a few seconds on facebook or instagram.
Memes can help a major amount of people understand social contexts in certain situations. take into instance some sort of quote -- "Me too, thanks." A lot of people who do not understand the reference will surely fall behind, and in many cases, lose friends, job opportunities, or even lose a perfect marriage due to the eventual separation and awkwardness that follow suit (not to mention the overall disappointment that is garnered when the reference is not understood.) They are real and everywhere. Take in to consideration the connection between parent and child. they can better understand what their child means when they take this possible college course. In turn, it can help the parent bond well with the child and will help the child have a better attitude. Whereas the lack of such course is a pain to recollect on when thinking about the United States education system. Any why not stop at memes? If and when every single education opportunity has been added to any college, Community, Ivy League, or what have you, everyone's aspirations will be satisfied in the educational standpoint. And, don't limit yourself to a few social networks. Many places host these and it is a beneficiary to have it as a college course to bring everyone together.
