Want to take a class called “Sherlock, Science, and Ratiocination” (via the Mythgard Institute at Signum University)? Of course you do, and now you can! Dr. Amy Sturgis is offering an online course!
She will be using Arthur Conan Doyle’s writings and the BBC’s Sherlock, among other sources.
Students may take the twelve-week course for master’s credit, and auditors may take it for the love of the subject. The course includes two 90-minute interactive lectures each of the twelve weeks (a total of 36 hours of lecture, which registrants may attend live or download for viewing/listening at their leisure), as well as options for the registrants to take part in online discussions with their peers and question-and-answer sessions with her.
The details – including the weekly schedule, lecture topics, and assigned texts – can be seen on the YouTube trailer at http://youtu.be/1pKVdfH1ePs and at the website at http://www.mythgard.org/academics/fall-2013-courses/sherlock-science-and-ratiocination/
