You couldn't make this up even if you wanted to:
I can see merit in at least some of them.
Four, Five and Eight got me interested... Ok, only Five and Eight really, providing it was only WonderWoman....
I could relate to the Star Trek and Philosophy and the Simpsons and Philosophy ones. There's a lot of interesting stuff in both of those programmes - amazingly so in the Simpsons case. what an excellently deep programme that is,
I can see value in many of those classes. I'd not want to base my thesis on some of them, but, I'm sure most of them would actually be quite an interesting course, with many opportunities for further study. As to the vampire study, Scholar, I believe our own resident lecturer, Janet, has actually taught courses on just that subject. She will correct me if I'm wrong.
I've taught university level courses on magic, magick, vampires, etc.
I'd suggest before slagging off the idea, people investigate the academic work on such things, including monster theory, theories of othering, etc.
Thank you for your input Janet. For those who, perhaps, do not understand the reasoning behind some of the topics under discussion, is it possible to give a brief synopsis of the desired outcomes from a study on, say, vampires? I'd attempt to describe what I'd think that such a course may teach, beyond the obvious, but, as I am not an educator, there would be nuances that I'd miss until someone hit me over the head with it.
