To us, college calls to mind memories of cramming for exams, all-nighters and the occasional frat formal. Clearly, a lot has changed since our days as a student because Netflix and chill has officially infiltrated one university’s curriculum.
How? Well, there’s actually a course dedicated to binge-watching The Good Place starring Kristen Bell at Beloit College in Beloit, Wisconsin.
Students taking Intro to Philosophy at Beloit will be tasked with watching all three seasons of the NBC comedy from Parks & Recreation creator Michael Schur. That’s, um, an interesting albeit fun homework assignment.
But it’s not all about zoning out and tuning in, according to Professor Robin Zebrowski, who created the course. The show actually explores a number of philosophical theories in a fun and easy to understand way.
