Though we are given the option to know about the legends and tales which created the magical world, there is not yet a class exploring the in depth creation of magical branches itself. In the extended Harry Potter Universe, Ancient Studies was offered as an Extra Curriculum Course found on the sixth floor of the Hogwarts Castle allowing students to delve into the Ancient Magic of all countries around the world. The class itself is not compulsory to pass into the next year but allows a user to add another skill under their belt and gain more house-points/money. It would be an option for Some of the Magic could include the following:
- Ancient Egyptian Spells (Looking into written magic and the magic of Pharos themselves
- Druid Magick and it's routes in England
- African Witchcraft
Though there is not a full course given for the subject on Harry Potter Wikia (http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Ancient_Studies), it would be teachable as there are many sources out there about historical Magic workings.
Benefits of this Course:
- Allows a student to understand the Origins of modern day magic
- Creates a wide range of courses available to a user
- Allows for a diverse and imaginative course
- Gives a user more freedom of course choice as it is not compulsory!
I for one would love to take this course! It offers such an insight into all kinds of magic and would teach the very origins or magic itself- back to Egyptian Gods and Druid Races! It could be an excellent idea for the foreseeable future. Though it is to do with Ancient Magic, and therefore history, it is more of a separate subject as it incorporates the use of this magic and would need it's own personal course layout!
Magical Blessings and Happy Hogwarts!
