    | 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.
