We all know that we would rather be binge-watching our favorite TV show than sitting in class listening to a lecture. Well, what if your homework for a class was to binge-watch your favorite show? Here are six schools where you can take a class on popular TV shows:
Oberlin Experimental College
If you love biology and SpongeBob, Spongebobology is the class for you. The Experimental College is a unique student organization and a department of the college where students often teach the classes. The college offers courses not offered in traditional courses of study, such as Spongebobology.
University of Nebraska-Lincoln
All honors students at this university have the opportunity to take Quality TV: From Buffy to Breaking Bad. The class takes students across several TV shows, such as The X-Files, The Sopranos, The West Wing, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and Sherlock, allowing students to compare the TV shows’ qualities to Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Students can take Sherlock Holmes Across Media as well as The Women of Game of Thrones. Sherlock Holmes Across Media allows students to compare Sherlock Holmes’s character development across the different types of media. In contrast, The Women of Game of Thrones allows students to analyze the role of women in Game of Thrones.
