Always Do the Reading
Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Not only is it an interesting topic, but it also another look at history and a way for students to understand the sorts of belief systems that our ancestors held. The professor for this course is also amazing and incredibly knowledgeable about the topic and makes the material fun and engaging despite the topic's potential of becoming bland or boring.
For me, the highlights of this class were learning about the mother goddess archetypes as well as hero myths. Learning about the stages of the Hero's Journey and relating it to our own lives and experiences is an inspiring way of validating the hardships that young adults face in college.

Advice for students:
If you are taking this course I would recommend you to not only rely on the required reading material to learn the myths that will be discussed. I personally was able to get a deeper understanding of the stories by researching more about them which doesn't take more than a few google searches.
