    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is great for any major. If you are majoring in a STEM field, the course shows you things that you might not experience in your core classes. If you are majoring in History, the course content shows a different side of your focus. You look at art from a huge period of time, seeing it parallel to the development of the human race's intellectual abilities. For artists, understanding what has come before your time, to whom you owe respect to, and experiencing the past is invaluable. An artist should take as many Art History courses as they can.

    Course highlights:

    We traveled from the earliest known works of art, pieces found in caves where early humans dwelled, to the first glimpses of the Renaissance. You learn to identify art from stages of Greek art's evolution, from statues that barely resemble a realistic human to figures that you can not believe aren't living. You see how cultures understood the world around them through the way they made art and what they chose to depict. You understand how people worshiped, whether it was to their Sun God, King, or Savior. Through art, you are immersed in worlds of the past.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best things you can do for yourself in this class, or any Art History class, is to take good notes, make flash cards, and enjoy the reading! You should spend time after class to review your notes. Every night, try to run through your flash cards. Making up funny stories connecting the title, artist, or date of the piece to the imagery will cement the information in your mind. It will make all the difference on the test!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is really strict, in a good way, and it prepares you for a four year college with they way she teaches. The course forces you to be organized and to ask questions in order to understand the material.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to study more proficiently and to not be afraid to ask questions about something I didn't understand. I also learned to be disciplined and read the textbook before the next class. Plus, I learned about a lot of interesting history about art.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to have the textbook and take notes from the reading and in class discussions.
