Dragons Around the World

This course will expand the student?s horizon to include an understanding of the cultural and environmental diversity of cultures on every continent with human habitation. Legends are created to help humans to understand the natural and cultural events of their specific culture in their specific ecological niche. Analyzing dragon legends enables students to have a holistic perspective and awareness of the interrelationships among cultural systems, individuals and their environments (cultural and physical) on every continent from Africa to Asia to Oceania, the Americas and Europe. Students are introduced to over fifty cultural systems and their ecological niches. (Gen. Ed. SB, DG)
