The class introduces students to major figures in classical Greek and Roman mythology and demonstrates the interconnectedness of classical mythology and history from ancient times until the present. According to the instructor, Dr. Kevin Birch, "A general knowledge of classical mythology is indispensable for an understanding of social and political history of both the ancient and modern worlds and without this knowledge much of literature and art, past and present, would remain unintelligible." The class meets Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10-10:50 a.m. Chesapeake prerequisite HIS 121 is required.
