Well thought out well presented. I feel I have gained a very knowledgeable and thorough understanding of both Greek and Roman mythology and their historical gods and goddesses from taking this course.
I loved this course. It covers material that is generally available to those who can afford an expensive private education. It was a great way to keep myself occupied during the coronavirus lockdown.

Really liked this class. Great presentations that tied in mythology, psychology, and psychoanalysis, which is exactly what I wanted to get out of the class. Thank you.

Mr. Struck, you have opened my eyes to the past.

A great overview of a rich cultural tradition. This course gives you the core knowledge and some fantastic tools to guide your own way through any family of myths.

My only complaints is that I want more. The instructor was engaging, the stories were great and this has taken me back to being a student and living for mythology.

Don't take this class if you don't have time for the (extensive) reading. But even if you DON'T have time? Listen to the first week's lectures!
The class is great!
