Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs Course | UC Berkeley Extension

If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, and would like to take your first
hieroglyphs course, or just brush the cobwebs from your previous study, you
have an opportunity to do that through UC Berkeley Extension. Dr. Teresa
Moore is teaching introductory Egyptian Hieroglyphs this coming semester.
The following is the announcement from the on-line version of the UC
Berkeley Extension catalog for Spring 2016.

Sign up! You won't regret it.


Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs ANTHRO X402

Course Description

Gain familiarity with the most common hieroglyphic signs and their elementary grammar using a textbook based on "The Shipwrecked Sailor," a 4,000-year-old tale of adventure and magic. You relate these language exercises to Egyptian history and religion. Get an introduction to royal and divine names frequently encountered by travelers and museum visitors. Study the simple formulae likely to be seen on funerary objects on exhibit. Each class session includes discussion and recitation, and concludes with a brief slide lecture highlighting some aspect of writing and literature in ancient Egypt.
