Mythology and folklore       have been used since the first people gathered around the fire as a way to make sense of humankind and our world. This course focuses on the many myths and legends woven      into cultures around the world. Starting with an overview of mythology and the many kinds of folklore, the student will journey with ancient heroes as they slay dragons and outwit the gods, follow fearless warrior women into battle and watch as clever animals outwit      those stronger than themselves. They will explore the universality and social significance of myths and folklore, and see how they are still used to shape society today.
