Final Exams (Suggested Templates)

 

In light of the recent election and the desire of professors to remain relevant, here are some suggested templates for use in drafting final exams within your department.

Economics

What does the high-end commercial construction business teach us about how to run the federal government so as to improve the American economy and the welfare of the American people?   (maximum word count: 28 words)

Philosophy

“Amateurs and Professionals”

The amateur/professional distinction is long-standing in western thought.  In light of the recent election, please explain which is which, how one can tell and whether it’s all going to be amateurism from here on out.    (Please note that use of definitions, stipulations, the ideal observer or the like will be penalized.)

Political Science

We do not have exam templates for you.  Please contact your department chair as soon as possible.   This major and the department have been discontinued.   Exams are canceled. Tenure relocation pursuant to Regent Rule 10-5-23 in Journalism or Theater Arts is advised where possible.  For further career advice, see  http://kremlinology–WTF happened?

Journalism

We do not have exam templates for you.  Please contact your department chair as soon as possible.   This major and the department have now been merged into Theater Arts.

Theater Arts

We do not have exam templates for you.  Please contact your department chair as soon as possible.   This major and the department will continue, but all classes and workshops are canceled.   It’s all a four-year Twitter externship from here on out.  (Good luck with that).

Bonus Question

What do cultural conservatism, proto-fascism, crony capitalism, industrial policy, free-range ignorance and white supremacy have in common?  (maximum word count: 1 word).
