This class was tough.
I learned about specific qualities of three different periods in art, music, and literature. This course focused on the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic periods in Europe. There was a lot of reading involved, and my professor graded harshly (especially on grammar), but it was worth taking because of the engaging and meaningful discussions.
I learned that authorial intent and historical context are important in how to analyze art. I also learned that the nuances of art is what makes it fascinating.

Advice for students:
Be prepared to put many hours into reading the course material each week. Never disrespect your professor during conferences. Take clear notes to review for the final and midterm. Attend lectures!
