Love Game of Thrones? Now you can become an expert on the Seven Kingdoms. The University of Virginia is offering a class on HBO’s Game of Thrones.

The class will be taught by associate professor of English Lisa Woolfork, who says, “One of the goals behind this class was to teach students how the skills that we use to study literature are very useful skills for reading literature and TV in conjunction. Game of Thrones is popular, it’s interesting, but it’s also very serious. There are a lot of things in the series that are very weighty, and very meaningful and can be illuminated through the skills of literary analysis.”

 

This doesn’t seem like the kind of course that will help you get a job when you graduate ... but it would be fun!
