    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a required course, basically a literature and art survey of the world, part of three in chronological order. You'll read world lit's celebrity books, but I highly recommend Dr. McCannon because she has an excellent classroom demeanor; she knows how to keep pace without leaving you behind, she has a taste for the perfect way to make a text relatable, and she introduces you well to the world of academia; if you want a career in this field, she gives you great criticism practice!

    Course highlights:

    For me the highlight was the examination of Chinese poetry, in both semesters, which inspired me to study Chinese! It's easily been one of my most rewarding experiences; you'll likely have something similar where one aspect of the course really speaks to you, if you give it a chance!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention to her blog posts as they're basically free exam review; this course is sort of choose your own difficulty; the more you reach for, the more difficult and rewarding it will be, but Dr. McCannon is extremely approachable and does her best to make her students feel welcome!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor McCannon made the curriculum interesting and interactive. We were not simply learning- we were experiencing.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course were the City Treasure assignments where the professor encouraged us to find remnants of past cultures in New York City. It helped us connect with the subject matter and get us out of our comfort zone.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the books and study the artwork! Take thorough notes and you'll ace the class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This whole course was very different than anything I have taken before. It is comparable to an art history course. Although I was not particularly interested in it, Professor Varnum made it bearable.

    Course highlights:

    The Byzantine Art game was extremely eye-opening. It was essentially a debate in class about whether or not icons of Christ should be preserved. We had to think like people from that certain time period and really emphasize our arguing side despite our personal beliefs.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the material before class so you are not lost when the professor lectures.
