More Jediness from the UK!
Bring your own light sabre: Uni launches Jedi course
The UK’s first Jedi course teaching personal development through a Star Wars syllabus will open to students at Queen’s University in Belfast from November.
According to its publicity material, the course, Feel the Force: How to Train in the Jedi Way, teaches the real-life psychological techniques behind Jedi mind tricks.
It also claims to examine the wider issues behind the Star Wars universe, like balance, destiny, dualism, fatherhood and fascism.
The university says it hopes to attract young Star Wars fans and introduce them to education through open learning.
No prior qualifications are required and the blurb informs students that light sabres are not provided.
