Make sure that you are interested not only in the historical/battle and wars of the expansion of the Roman Empire, but also the political and social changes within Rome from its birth until it's downfall. I found this course to be a bit different from what i was expecting, but not wholly bad, just a bit bland for those who have little to no interest in the political and social actors of Rome. This course focuses primarily on broad, subjective topics such as 'what makes a good emperor in the eyes of the Roman people', and 'what is the role of freedmen and women within Rome'. It is more a reflection on your perspective/insights on what YOU think about the society of Rome given ideas the lecturer expresses in lectures and analyses further in tutorial time with primary sources such as Ovid, Cicero, Polybius, etc.

Lecturers are really passionate about this subject, the assessments are quite straightforward and not that difficult. I found the second half of lectures to be more interesting though, once we got out of talking about all the events of the wars and on to actual people.
