Register Now for One of Mythgard’s Summer Courses!

Three new exciting courses will be offered at the Mythgard Institute this summer:

Modern Fantasy – In this course, Mythgard’s president, Dr. Corey Olsen, will lead an examination of the work of some top fantasy writers (among them Peter Beagle, Ursula Le Guin, Neil Gaiman, and George RR Martin) with the course’s primary focus being on comparing each authors’ approach to fantasy, myth, and magic.

The Arthur Story: History, Mystery, Myth – This course, taught by Dr. Verlyn Flieger, will track the history of the legendary but mysterious king from the later 5th/early 6th century through 1500 years. Throughout the course, students will find many different – and often conflicting – versions of the story, which throughout its history has moved from folklore to romance to tragedy.

Elementary Latin I – Offered through Signum University and taught by Dr. Philip Walsh, Elementary Latin I is designed to offer students the basic elements of the language, placing an emphasis on grammar, vocabulary, and reading comprehension.   

Registration is ongoing now, but don’t wait! The deadline is Monday, May 14. And these are three courses you don’t want to miss out on.

Not sure whether to take the course for MA credit or just for fun? Visit Mythgard’s Embark page to learn more about both options.
