    Winter is coming to Harvard.

    The Ivy League university is planning to offer a "Game of Thrones"-themed class starting this fall.

    According to TIME, the Folklore and Mythology class will be called "The Real Game of Thrones: From Modern Myths to Medieval Models," and will look at how the popular HBO series and the books it is based on both mirror and differ from actual medieval European history.

    Assistant Professor Racha Kirakosian, one of two people teaching the course, told TIME she hopes the course will help recruit more students to the school's medieval studies and humanities courses.
