About the Course:

This class focuses on the popular British television program Doctor Who, beginning from the 2005 relaunch and working its way through the series up through the most recent finished season: Series 6. We will explore the ethics of time-travel, the nature of humanity, concepts of morality and justice, the Doctor as a mythological figure, and more. The aim of the class is to allow students to learn how to watch with a critical eye and also to serve as an introductory course to the show for those who are not familiar with it, or anyone who wishes to navigate the series and search for the answers to that all-important question: Doctor who?

How to Enroll:

Enrollment will be via an application process involving a questionnaire (to be posted on the DeCal site) which is to be turned in to the Facilitators no later than 48 hours after the end of the first class. Once the questionnaire is posted online, students may begin submitting it by email once completed. Students will be informed before the third course meets whether or not they are enrolled, and those accepted will be given the CCNs accordingly.


UPDATE: Due to an administrative change in the Academic Calendar, the applications for this DeCal will not be processed until after the deadline for adding classes without a fee. Students should be aware that due to this unforeseen complication, they will have to pay $5 to the school to add the class. The Facilitators apologize profusely for this, but it is out of our control.
