Not too easy. Not too difficult.
First, it is a general requirement. Second, I found it interesting to learn about Greek and Roman history and to put that into the context of modern world history. Many aspects of our modern world were derived from ancient history. The understanding of this information can help us to envisage where we (humans) were and where we are going.
I gained an understanding of how Greek and Roman culture were established and flourished respectively. It shows the rudimentary systems of governance, religion, and humanity and how each shaped their world and affected ours.

Advice for students:
An appreciation for history will make this course easier to accomplish. Reading assignments and discussion are important steps in this learning process. It is also good to take Art History (AHIST 1401) either before or concurrently to have a full appreciation for this time period.
