I'm a huge mythology buff and currently teach popular and well-reviewed live Outschool classes in Greek, Norse, Japanese, and Egyptian Mythology in Popular Culture. I've also studied ancient cultures at Georgetown University, including a class in Ancient Greek Religion. I'm combining them together here in the Self-Paced format and am excited to share my knowledge and love of ancient culture and mythology with you!
Clips from PG-13 movies will be shown, but will be pre-screened by the instructor to be age-appropriate for the class (no gratuitous violence, sexuality, profanity, etc)
