Have you been to college? All students HAVE is free time. They don't need any more time during the day freed up. As far as the cost goes, why does it matter? They are spending their money to pay for the course. Right now that money is a loan that has a high chance of not being paid back. If we got government uninvolved with the student loan game then maybe students would be a bit more discerning with which courses they spend their money on. Though that's advocating personal responsibility. Can we handle that?

5. “Philosophy And Star Trek” (Georgetown) – Star Trek is very philosophical. What better way, then, to learn philosophy, than to watch Star Trek, read philosophy, and hash it all out in class? That’s the plan. This course is basically an introduction to certain topics in metaphysics and epistemology philosophy, centered around major philosophical questions that come up again and again in Star Trek. In conjunction with watching Star Trek, we will read excerpts from the writings of great philosophers, extract key concepts and arguments and then analyze those arguments.
