Anyone who has been to college knows the delicate balancing act that takes place with difficult classes your major requires, tempered with easy classes so your GPA doesn’t make you look like a total idiot. If you are going to Syracuse University, it may have just added the coolest class at any college to the schedule. You can take an entire class about Doctor Who from the Newhouse School of Public Communications.
The class discusses the history and lasting cultural impact of the long-running BBC sci-fi series. The teacher of the course isn’t some geek who just happened to talk the university into letting him come onboard. The class is being taught by Anthony Rotolo, the director of the university’s online master’s in communications program.
As you might guess, the class has turned out to be popular – with 100 students enrolling since it listed on October 26. The best new is that you don’t need to be physically at Syracuse to take the class; it’s online and available globally.
