Reviews

This is one of the best subjects I have ever taken. Billy is a captivating lecturer who draws on thought from the fields of anthropology, sociology, literary theory (to name but a few) for his lectures; and it kinda goes without saying that the course material (myth) is interesting and entertaining in itself. There is 'something for everyone' in this course if you have any interest at all in almost any field of the humanities.

My favourite unit I took this year. Billy's lectures were captivating and packed with information. Readings could sometimes stack up but commitment to study was rewarded in weekly quizzes. Final essay provided a balance of structure and freedom in research. Billy made sure all were thoroughly prepared for final exam. As a history and art history student the myths and history taught in this unit have been vital in providing a basis for future studies.

The content was interesting and the discussions during our tutorials were never dull. However I felt like the majority of the course consisted of reading the textbook and then regurgitating that information during the weekly quizzes or in the final exam. The only part of the course that required some critical thinking was the major essay, which I found to be enjoyable. 3/5

This subject is awesome for myth-lovers! Even if you don't have a lot of previous knowledge, but are really interested in Greek and Roman myth then this is the subject for you. There are weekly in-tutorial quizzes which are based on readings directly from the book, so if you highlight/write notes on the required chapters then you should be set. They quiz you basically on names of key mythical figures and what occurred within the set myth. The subject's essay was not that difficult, I got an HD in it and recommend just picking a key theme the has been repeated throughout the semester by the lecturer. The final exam was simple enough, basically just know key names and myths (make sure to review the book/chapter notes which you should have taken throughout the semester). If you've taken ARCA1001, it is similar in the way that there are a few image questions in the final exam. I hope this review helps, and make sure to enjoy the upcoming semester!!

Interesting content but a LOT of overlap. You first have to read the assigned textbook chapters, upon which you are then quizzed (I found it pretty easy to get near perfect scores every week - which drastically improves your standing with the tutor), and THEN you go to the two hour lecture where the myth is retold to you. I tuned in and out, and there were obviously useful insights from the lecturer but overall I found it monotonous. Main advice: READ THE TEXTBOOK and make sure you SUMMARISE it. it will save your life. also get an early start on the essay.

By far the best subject I have taken. The unit coordinator is funny and entertaining and puts in a lot of effort into his course. The tutors are friendly and helpful, but you need the textbook to pass the course! You should revise constantly as the names can become confusing but other than that it is really enjoyable for those myth lovers out there!

Based primarily on memorization of text book in order to score well on weekly quizzes of 20 questions. Final exam is the same, memorization of characters and names in relation to the myths. This subject is better if you don't have other intensive subjects to study, or are doing part time
