CAMS 1103: Classical Mythology

Course Description: (Sample Course Syllabus)
Three credits. Origin, nature, and function of myth in the literature and art of Greece and Rome and the re-interpretation of classical myth in modern art forms.

The form of 1103 to be offered must conform closely to the form offered at UConn. Candidates who have not previously worked with Professor Travis may apply for temporary certification, with full certification pending completion of the online course and a follow-up certification interview. Candidates should understand that this process may take several months to a year, and that full certification must be completed before instructors may apply for permission to list the course in the following year. Applications for this course must be submitted a year in advance of the planned year the course will be taught in the high school.

In addition, candidates to teach CAMS 1103 should meet the same standards as those required for CAMS 3012: a Master’s Degree in Classics or other MA supported by equivalent classical coursework.

Semester offered: Fall, Spring or Full-Year.
