Northern Illinois University is offering a course this semester on the HBO series Game of Thrones under the course titled “Game of Thrones, Television and Medieval History”.

The popular television show is now in its fifth season which began in April 2015. The show has garnered a large following worldwide and is based on books by George R.R. Martin.

According to Huffington Post, the mode of instruction for the course includes watching the show, as well as readings from them book. Students also watch presentations that relate the content of the book to cable television, history and current occurrences. Co-professor Valerie Garver said, “it (GoT) represents aspects of the Middle Ages much more realistically than other media depictions that purport to be more accurate. It stands out because it comments on the human condition in a way that seems real to people. It’s a really good example of a piece of modern culture that draws on how the past impacts the present.”

Accounting major Alex Weier, a student interviewed by the Huffington Post said the show is deeper and more in-depth than many realize.”The themes of the show are reality-based themes, where good doesn’t always beat evil,” he said. “It keeps you on your toes.”
