    I would highly recommend this course! Not only is it interesting and insightful, but also fun to learn about possibilities for future design projects and the professor is passionate about his field.

    I learned a lot about what makes a design successful/good and how current designs, such as city plans, can be improved to heighten the quality of life for inhabitants. It was also good practice taking thoughtful notes and many times I would leave lectures with a lot to think about.

    Take good notes! Be thoughtful and give your own opinions when you're writing them. Do all the extra credit and ask the professor questions.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Design Appreciation is not just about architecture or design. It is about a lot of things. It teaches about design in general, such as the design of this government, the design of the economy, the design of urbanization, the design of zoning requirements, etc.

    Course highlights:

    I believe that the highlight of this course was when we video chat a student in Germany to speak with him about a mobile type product he designed. It was very interesting to learn how he implemented sustainability in his design.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I advice to go to every class. if you listen and pay attention, you will do well. Take good notes because it will help you when taking your quizzes online.
