As a huge geek, I find it appropriate to educate myself with as many things within geek culture so that I can make educated statements and have actual conversations about geeky things. So it is only natural that if there was ever a college course that had anything to do with superheroes, I would be a part of it. Well…turns out there is a class about superheroes. It is called The Rise of Superheroes and Their Impact On Pop Culture. It is a free course offered on edx.org, a newer website that offers free courses. Now not only is this class about such an awesome topic, but it has some pretty awesome instructors, one of which is none other than the great Stan Lee. What an awesome opportunity to learn about superheroes and how they have become such a great part of pop culture by someone who has been a man completely immersed in comic books for a huge part of his life.
Though the course is offered for free, there is also an option to pay $50 which will include a certificate that says you completed the course and is signed by Stan Lee. Whether that is the option for you or you just want to take the course for free, this is an essential class for anyone who wants to either gain more knowledge about being a geek or someone who finds joy in anything geeky.
Below is a link to the post that I initially read concerning the course and you can easily navigate to sign up for the course there. This class will be well worth the time and effort you will put in…and it will be super fun as well. Sign up now and be a part of an awesome geek event!!
