UnderAcademy College is an unaccredited undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate anti-degree institution. UnderAcademy College situates itself as a shadow-academic environment offering alternative courses and anti-degree programs in a variety of subjects. The primary mission of UnderAcademy College is to remain open, marginal, and unaccredited.

“UnderAcademy is not anti-academic, it is under — like under the influence of the academy. And, we are not a university; we are called a college because of its phonological proximity to collage.” Talan Memmott Founder and President, UnderAcademy College


 


CHANGING OF THE GUARD

markUnderAcademy College is pleased to announce that Mark Marino will take over as Probationary Provost. Former Provisional Provost Talan Memmott will assume the role of Founder and President.
Memmott said, “with UnderAcademy in operation for eight years now, it is time to move from being a collage of a college toward become a bricolage of a collage of a college. UnderAcademy will be in great hands with Mark as Probationary Provost. I mean, we’ll see… it is probationary.”
Mark has worked with UnderAcademy almost since the beginning, offering courses in Grammar Porn, Fake News, and a master class in Dad Jokes. He carries a Caput Magnum degree from UnderAcademy College.

MASTERS CLASS IN DAD JOKES

What do you call a guy who takes a course in Dad Jokes?
A Pun Gent!

In this classy class, we’ll explore the ins and outs of jokes only dads would tell. Patronize the patriarchy with us as we explore a form of humor so painful to hear they’re endEARing.  You don’t have to be a dad, have a dad, or have bagged a dad (ahem) to be in this course. All it takes is a shameless love a puns and a sense that no joke is too corny. Learn to make young people groan or maybe just to appreciate the punning paters in your life!

Course runs January 18 – January 28
