Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

This course prepares students for university-level academic writing through the study of ancient Egyptian religion. We will investigate the ways that beliefs and rituals connected ancient Egyptians to the gods, the dead, the animal world, and the wider cosmos, and we will explore the evidence for Egyptian "myths" and "mythology." Through learning to use Egyptian literature, art, and archaeological artifacts as evidence for ancient religious practices, students will improve their skills in academic research and writing. Assignments include preparatory writing and essays focusing on readings and discussions in class.
