‘Game of Thrones’ College Courses We Would Want to Take

According to Time magazine, Harvard is now offering a new Game of Thrones-themed history class called “The Real Game of Thrones: From Modern Myths to Medieval Models.” The class will focus on the books’ and show’s similarities to and differences from actual medieval history.

One of the professors of the class, Sean Gilsdorf, a medieval historian and administrative director and lecturer on medieval studies, said, “Game of Thrones does dramatize nicely some fundamental things going on in medieval courts.” He added, “Tensions between a queen and the younger women who marry their sons are some ‘Real Housewives of 10th-century Germany’ kind of stuff, where you see these women going after each other.”

This isn’t the first college course to be based on Game of Thrones, which got us thinking: What other lessons could someone learn from the show?
