Event description
Academus' Mythology Crash Course is designed to give myth enthusiasts a 5-hour intensive window into the Ancient World.

About this event

The Academus Mythology Crash Course will provide a free online introduction to mythology, designed for 14-18-year-olds. It is designed to be an intensive 5-hour insight programme into the mythology of Ancient Greece and Rome. Students will cover a broad range of figures and stories from Ancient Mythology to further their understanding of the Ancient World. 

All of our tutors have studied myth in-depth and many have specialised in the fields that they teach. Our modules are all specially developed to make Classics as accessible as possible using new and innovative online teaching techniques.

The course will cover a range of topics across Graeco-Roman mythology. It will also touch on reception studies and will provide an excellent basis for any students considering pursuing Classics further in their education. 

The five areas studied throughout the day will be:

  1. The Gods and their genealogy
  2. Heroes in myth vs heroes of today
  3. The original Monsters Inc. :The monsters of mythology
  4. The political uses of myths in Ancient Greece and Rome
  5. The reception of mythology in art and popular culture
