As a York student of PEP I would like to take issue with the “Blag your Degree” column in the last edition. I know this is meant to be satire but I think all it does is demean the degree that I and many others work so hard for and the department whose staff are among the best in the country. The writer seems to have completely misunderstood the nature of the degree course and what it is involved: far more than just the “art of bullshitting”.
I don’t mean to sound like I am taking this all too seriously but I just think you should be more careful when writing such columns so as not to demean the department staff and students who spend numerous years and thousands of pounds studying for this degree.
