Greek Mythology Course objectives:
1. to introduce the major themes, narratives and characters in Greek and Roman mythology
2. to understand literary and cultural allusions and background in relation to Greco-Roman mythology.
3. to explore the role of Greco-Roman mythology in building Western culture.
This course introduces both Greek and Roman mythology which form the basis of Western Literature and which continue to influence modern literature. Both myths and adaptations of myths in modern form will be read and studied. Various aspects of the myths will be discussed. Students will learn to approach myths critically and at the same time strengthen their skills in reading, analyzing and discussing narratives. This elective course (2 credits) provides a basis for literature classes taken in later years. General English skills should improve as well.
