Default New IOU departments, courses, etc.?

I'm trying to get a new campaign up and running in my Time Travel University setting, basically Illuminati University (IOU) but with much greater focus on time travel. I'm currently trying to put together a good course catalog, but it's no easy task to fill in the dozens or een hundreds of course names. So if anyone has ANY kind of ideas for departments and/or courses offered, let me know. It should not be courses for actual time travel, as those are alrady covered, I need something for a more... full educational experience. And it's just for inspiration, so there is no "wrong answer" (except anything that offends the Archdean's cats, of course)!

(edit: Just checked if the web URL was available. It's not. DO NOT GO THERE!)

Here is an old thread on the forums with some humorous course listings.

Some other things from that campaign.

Take your geiger counter with you to the cafeteria. Anything that "looks" good to eat is probably radioactive.

The rats in the steam tunnels might go easy on you if you bring them some arugula. Of course, exactly what "arugula" was baffled all my players. Well actually what the rats asked for was "ah-ah-rooo-guu-la-ah".

All the sections of Chem 101 are taught by either Prof A.Sobrano, B. Sobrano, C. Sobrano and so on. How and why the inventor of nitroglycerin got cloned and ended up at IOU (not necessaily in that order) never got answered.
