Mythology CLAS-1040

Architecture showing winged figures

This course will introduce you to the gods, heroes, and monsters of Greek and Roman mythology. The focus of the course involves reading and discussing selected works of ancient Greek and Roman literature in English translation, but we will also move beyond these narratives to examine how the Greeks and Romans portrayed their myths in other media, including art and architecture. We will also explore how the Greeks interacted with gods and heroes through religious practice and ritual.
