Course Description

Do you feel totally clueless when it comes to Greek Mythology? Do you often say to yourself:  "It's all Greek to me"?  You were supposed to learn this stuff in school but classical mythology isn't really taught anymore in elementary or secondary schools. This basic self-paced course can help.

Greek Mythology will give you an overview of the huge collection of stories explaining the creation of the world and the lives of the gods, goddesses, heroes and heroines. The scope of the Greek myths is astounding.  Starting with the birth of the world, through bloody wars like Troy and Thebes, heroic acts of Hercules and childish pranks by Hermes, and the touching stories of mother love in Demeter and Persephone.

Greek Mythology 101

Greek myths have passionate love stories, adventure stories, superhuman tales, fairy tales, magical stories, tales of gods and monsters and beasts and stories of witchcraft and sorcery.  We've inherited these myths in the form of art and literature. It's really entertaining to discover them.

Student Testimonials

  • "I thought the assignments really made me learn an extra amount. They were fun, and challenging. I LOVED this class. I also could tell the teacher was very knowledgeable and always gave me a speedy return on grading, etc....Very interesting class, smart and friendly instructor. It wasn't overly easy, and I really liked that. I learned A LOT in this class." -- Caroline S.
  • "The instructor has provided a very orgainzed and detailed course. The reading materials were interesting, but at times I did become a bit overwhelmed at all of the names of the ancient gods and goddesses and their relationships with one another and with the mortals. I appreciate your prompt responses to my email messages and your grading of the assignments and quizzes. This course should be rated with four stars. I have enjoyed my walk with you, even though it was "all Greek to me". I can only hope that you will offer more courses, such as Roman Mythology!!!" -- Sara H.
  • "A fantastic introduction to the myth's of ancient greece with a slight flavouring of Humanities subjects. Realistic expectations of work load with the chance to expand on the work and explore styles within and around the subject. A correct and non bias presentation of the facts of myths without becoming too narrow....Well done. You have inspired me and made a difference to my learning experience. Its course like this that inspire me to go forward in my personal study and achieve my personal goals." -- Chris M.
