Greetings! I'm Mike Christopher, one of Valencia College's Professors who currently instructs both the Introduction to Humanities (HUM 1020) and Mythology (HUM 2310) courses.
Liberty University: M.A. -Master of Arts in Christian Apologetics
Rollins College: M.L.S. -Master of Liberal Studies
University of Central Florida: B.A. -Humanities
Valencia College: A.A. -General Studies
Valencia College: A.S. -Film Science Technology
Aside from my academic pursuits, I obviously enjoy the Humanities (all that this entails with our cultures, our foods, our music, arts, literature, cinema, beliefs and religions; all the things that distinguish us as human beings). I find that observing people can be quite fascinating. Have you ever asked yourself why you or other people do the things that you or they do? In my courses, I hope to engage in conversations with the students, present alternatives to the "norm" or "usual," and learn more of who we are and what is available to us. I wonder about the multitude of possible concerns here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Va5PfPT3iMc
Do you, why or why not? We will use Canvas in our courses.
The textbook that we are using for HUM 1020 is the Gloria K. Fiero, Landmarks in Humanities, 5th Edition or custom Valencia edition ISBN 9781307567571.
For HUM 2310 Mythology, we are using An Introduction to Comparative Mythology, 3rd Edition by Dr. Jennifer Taylor. You can find these at the Valencia College bookstore and probably most online sources such as Amazon, Alibris, Abebooks, Half.com among others. I instruct at the Poinciana Campuses. See you this Semester!

I am usually available 15 minutes before courses begin, usually available for time after courses end, and via email. I instruct both courses (HUM 1020/Intro to Humanities & HUM 2310/Mythology) at the Poinciana campuses.
