The classes and lectures for this subject are entertaining, and intellectually stimulating. There is a lot of freedom in the subject for you to explore your interests despite a narrative emphasis on Alexander the Great. The subject is also research-essay focused, and demands a good grasp on how to write a good essay to get a H1.

The topics of this subject covered in the lectures are interesting as they covered a variety of areas from the Peloponnesian War to the different empires that came from Alexander the Great's death. However the subject coordinator Dr Gijs Tol marks really harshly and this is not helped by his feedback for the weekly 200 mini-essays being generally unhelpful as they focused on pointing out the flaws of your responses without offering much constructive criticisms on how to improve writing your responses. In addition, the readings are more focused on narrative accounts of historical events relevant to this subject that feels like you are reading a stream of consciousness that jumps from topic to another without much indication and makes it hard to do a critique on them. Don't do this subject unless you are absolutely keen on the history of ancient Greek culture and the Mediterranean World.
