I'm guess I'm going to be the Negative Nancy here and say my initial reaction to having courses like this isn't great.
My perpetual concern with the skeptical community as a whole is that we present skeptical inquiry and critical thinking as unique talents, and that people who engage in these tasks are doing something fundamentally different from how the average person approaches science, medicine, religion, politics, etc. I get even more concerned when these divisions are being actively encouraged by the world of academia. If a chemistry class is not teaching students how to properly vet experimental evidence, and those students then decide 10 years later that detox therapy is a great idea, the issue is not that the university didn't offer a course on skepticism. It's that the students didn't learn chemistry. I'd much rather have a few 15 minute lectures within typical university courses on how to evaluate evidence, how to be aware of common biases and logical fallacies, and how to find trustworthy news sources rather than shoving all of these ideas into a separate course.
I realize there are thousands of imbeciles with college degrees that serve as counter evidence to my argument, but I have a hard time believing that you can take Physics 101, Journalism 101, and Stats 200 at a decent university and not come away with a significantly refined skeptical worldview. If those classes are not already integrating critical thinking into their curricula, I doubt a class on bullshit is going to do anything more than serve as a band aid.
I am still pissed off that I never took a basic "History of Science" class, despite 6 years studying mechanical engineering. I'd favor more courses like that over a class tailored to calling bs.
