Who knew Star Trek would make it into the college classroom? While some might find philosophy a bit too dull, Georgetown University has taken a new spin on the classic subject. The class “Philosophy and Star Trek” considers questions of merit: Is it possible to travel back in time? How are the body and brain connected? What is free will, and do humans have it?
Georgetown is more than a haven for the Star Trek obsessed; it’s a medium-sized, private university that’s tough to get into. Georgetown is considered a very selective school, as only 18% of applicants are admitted. With a student-faculty ration of 12:1, you can understand why!
While Georgetown offers many different programs, the most popular majors are in Social Sciences, Business Marketing, English, Health Professions, and Foreign Language & Literature.
