    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He is a very passionate and knowledgable professor. He knows a lot about the subject of art history so open yourself up to his knowledge (and his Lord of the Rings jokes). He structures the Humanities curriculum by looking at art, architecture, and literature from different cultures. He uses the pieces to give you a visual and then discusses what it shows about the culture. So you have a visual that holds the content. I think this aspect is cool because it's a new way to go over cultures we think we know enough of like the Romans and the Egyptians, and if we see that work we can talk about all the knowledge we have of it and the culture it is part of. He makes the class interesting and provides a lot of help with essay rewrites and study guides/study sessions. He also gives extra credit if you go to the Getty, which is a pretty cool place and is a nice excuse to get off campus. The homework really helps you keep up with the content so that studing for tests isn't too hard. Plus he tells you what you will be tested on. Even if it is an 8 am, I would really recommend because I learned a lot and it was engaging.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned about many of cultures of humans from the cavemen to Renaissance Europe. You learn a lot about ancient religions and make connections between them. What's really cool is there are a lot of connections between cultures that I never knew before, like many cultures have great epics like Homer's classics. I also learned the origins of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and how this history is shown in art and literature.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Buy the textbook. Go to class. Read the assigned reading, he usually gives reading quizes each class and it makes studying for unit tests easier. You can still do well if you dont do well on the quizes though. Go to the extra credit opportunities even if it requires an essay (he grades nicely on those). Listen to his lectures they're the key to his tests and he'll even say what's on the test most of the time. Some people think the prof is annoying because he seems like he's trying to be better than you with his knowledge, I never got that vibe. He's just a passionate art geek who gets excited about what he's teaching. The students with the other perspective didn't do as well in the class because they wanted to spite him for some reason ?? (don't do that). Also if you feel like other students have more previous education on the subject and you feel like this will set you back, it doesn't really. And don't be discouraged when Keene says things like "who has gone to this country? Nobody? Who has read Beowulf?" I've never raised my hand to those questions but it hasn't set me back at all.

    Read the book and the assigned material diligently, study for exams early, and Professor Keene offers a lot of extra credit, make use of it.
