This course will glance into both the culture and history of ancient Egyptian communication through hieroglyphics. The significance of these writings, from their inception to their current state, will be explored over two sessions as we decipher this once forgotten language of the Gods.

Class 1: Ancient Egypt & the Medu Netjer


The ancient world from which Egyptian hieroglyphics emerged might be a thing of the past, but is definitely not forgotten. A professor guides students through the historical significance of the ancient Egyptian civilization and how their hieroglyphics, medu netjer or "utterances of the Gods," withstood the shifting sands of time to give the modern world a glimpse into a once great civilization.

Class 2: Deciphering Hieroglyphics


Have you ever wondered how to interpret ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics? This class examines these symbols at a basic level. An instructor will break concepts down into the vital pieces of information that are necessary for introductory comprehension, from the many ways to read hieroglyphics to the phonetic sounds they represent.
