Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course to everyone--whether you have special interests in Art History or not. I studied art, and I ended up double majoring in Studio AND Art History in part because of this class! Daniel Coslett has taught some of my favorite classes at Western Washington University including Architecture classes and many more.
In this course, we learned about ancient Greek and Roman architecture, art, and culture, as well as their origins--the ancient Etruscan cultures, and Minoan cultures were also fascinating to me. For example, we learned how to distinguish the cultural origin of a temple (or other buildings) based on specific subtleties in the architecture.

Advice for students:
Study Tip: Read the chapters OR go to class--if you have a pretty good note-taking system, or memory, then you don't HAVE to read the chapters, because the professor covered most everything in the lectures (and it was more fun to listen to him than read anyways).
