Pop-Cultural Academia

Students are offered academic courses that revolve around pop culture

Implications - Modernized college courses reflect the importance of pop culture and mass media influences. While 17% of the Gen Z demographic wants to pursue entrepreneurial endeavors without gaining higher education, colleges appeal to their interest in pop culture as a means to encourage college attendance. By combining aspects of entertainment such as celebrities and television, post-secondary schools have a new opportunity to retain interest in traditional educational institutes.
