As if the hit HBO series Game of Thrones wasn't popular enough ... Northern Illinois University is just one of several universities that offered a course in the spring semester about the show. The class is called Game of Thrones, Television and Medieval History, and was offered for honors credit.
NIU is not the first or the only college that offered the course, these other colleges and universities also offered the course about the popular cable show:
University of British Columbia
University of California, Berkeley
State University of New York at Cortland
University of Tulsa
University of Virginia
"Game of Thrones" just wrapped its eighth and final season.
