    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is very interesting, learning about the art and comparing books to the way people lived. Professor Moore made the note taking process as well as the reviews for our exams and was always able to help with extra questions you had during office hours.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course for myself was learning about the Tudor family, the six wives of Henry VII. The tudor family was very interesting for me, how the throne got passed down after each death, how it wasn't in order but it was all based on primogeniture so they once had a 12 year old King.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of your work, consistently check D2L because readings and homework assignments are on their 80% of the time. There is a research paper due towards the end of the semester, take great notes, and take advantage of the time you have to get your first draft checked over by a teacher or some friends. Make sure to check class discussion posts online prior to exams because other students love helping.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to those who have had a primarily or exclusively western education, because the information taught here adds perspective and explanation to much of western knowledge and thought. For example, here you learn answers to questions like: Why are columns and arches common in architecture? How did Spanish end up being the main language of Spain? Why aren't there any Catholic English monarchs? Who painted that picture I see when I Google "philosophy"? How did Christianity become so widespread?

    Course highlights:

    This course features an overview of western culture, art, and philosophy, from the Greco-Roman period to European history at the end of the eighteenth century. The emphasis is on European art and literature; information about the Americas, Africa, and Asia is taught in other courses.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take this course, be mentally prepared to do a lot of reading, and a fair amount of writing. Be sure to always take detailed notes in class, especially regarding paintings. Lectures can move quickly, so an audio recorder might help. Most of all, pay close attention to study guides, because exams feature few or no surprise questions! Do not hesitate to call attention to study guide topics that have not been covered. There is little to no group work.
