From Star Trek in context, to the notorious “Jay-Z class”, to any taught by a Jesuit, a Hoya’s class list can contain a variety of unique and interesting choices. However, every Hoya also has a few remaining academic requirements that he or she needs to satisfy.
While Georgetown prides itself in its well rounded, liberal arts curriculum, at times these classes can sometimes seem like they are only expanding your doodling techniques rather than your interests.
Fear not, you can easily find yourself in a class that you love! A class that not only keeps you from scrolling through the latest Instagrams, but also creates newfound interests and passions. Or maybe you simply find a class you would recommend to another student come preregistration time.
We asked around for these recommendations and here are some Hoyas’ choices for the best class they have taken at Georgetown that they were required to take (click on the class names to get to the course descriptions to see for yourself!):
Note: The below suggestions were all reader entries, they do not reflect the views of The Hoya, The Fourth Edition or this writer.
- Problem of God with Father Fields, Father Hentz and Professor Sanders
- Introduction to Biblical Literature with Professor Linafelt and Father Walsh
- History of Civil Rights with Professor Chatelain

With preregistration already here, check some of these classes out. Who knows – your new choice for best class could be among this very list!
Also, pandas! (We’re really good at segues.)
