UCLA’s Luskin School of Public Affairs will begin offering a Masters Degree program in understanding Los Angeles’s parking restrictions beginning in 2020.
The two-year course is part of an initiative by UCLA and other public universities to prepare graduates with practical, rather than purely theoretical, skills that may help them out of the crippling debt and underemployment that often accompanies getting a graduate degree in the liberal arts.
“We believe this degree offers a great opportunity for our students,” said the Jeffrey Katzenberg Chair of Parking Regulations and Indiginous Studies, Dr. Mordechai “Shelly” Abramowitz. “Tuition for the two-year program is $80,000, which we think is a good investment since our graduates will be driving all over L.A. as Uber drivers working to pay off the tuition for this program for the next 40 or 50 years. The money saved from not getting so many tickets over that long of a period can really add up.”
Classes will be held every day between 3-5PM, except Wednesdays when the classroom will be off-limits for sweeping.
The Avocado reached out to UCLA’s Dean of Physic Sciences, Dr. Miguel Garcia-Garibay, for more information about the program, which honestly just confused him since the degree was not part of the physics department. We then asked him to explain to us how planes fly, but we couldn’t follow any of what he was saying.
