    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a very difficult class. Notes and reading are completely necessary. Discussion is mandatory in class or your grade will drop. Tests are essay/definition-based and it is a struggle to complete it in 55 minutes. Details and overall concepts are on the tests. The research paper required for the class is 9-10 pages, and the professors do not grade those easily.

    Course highlights:

    The course is a humanities overview from prehistoric times to the beginning of the Renaissance. There is a large quantity of information covered in this course, and I learned a lot. Drs Maple and Knedler stress the importance of philosophy and art.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's required if you're in the Oklahoma Christian Honors program, and watch out, there's a Western Thought II in the spring semester. This was by far the toughest Honors class the freshmen have to take. Make sure you pay attention in class, speak up (even if it's just a little), take notes, do the homework and study for your tests! I know that's a lot, but it takes a lot to succeed in this class.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    A better overview of western culture from the dawn of time to the Middle Ages is difficult to imagine. Art, literature, and the overarching human movements driving them were explored in great detail. By placing value on interpretation, and not merely recognizing various works provides a far greater level of educational benefit.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights are definitely in learning how to analyze visual art. I had little experience before this class, but by learning key points to look for in each form and period, it became very easy, even with pieces not covered in the course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be able to recognize all of the art by name. Don't focus on learning what is important about each one, but learn what is important about each group of art. Being able to explain this is valued more highly than to simply name the physical differences between each example.
