    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The coursework itself, although a heavy load, is made easy and enjoyable by the amazing teacher Mr. Edsall. He's hilarious, very talented at lecturing, and a genuinely caring person. He'll be there to help you when you're struggling with the material or even when you need advice on a personal issue. Overall, the subject is very interesting if you are interested in human history, especially the Unit on the Dark Ages and the Renaissance.

    Course highlights:

    My two favorite units were the Dark Ages unit and the Renaissance unit. In the Dark Ages unit we learned just how far humanity has come in just a few centuries in terms of medicine, social issues, and politics. In the Renaissance unit, we analyze beautiful works of art that symbolize unique historical events.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're good at retaining facts and understanding complex multiple choice questions, this class is for you. I would advise you to show up to the class as much as possible because the lectures are key to understanding the material

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Through class participation and discussion, students are able to evaluate the famous works of art that have changed the course of history.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to explore different artistic expressions that covered topics like politics, gender, race and religion from various cultures. No other course changes the learning environment to one of discovery. I genuinely enjoyed coming to class because not only was I being exposed to these pieces, I learned to develop proper visual, contextual and comparative skills so I could gain an in depth understanding of the image.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I believe the best study tool to succeed in this class are flashcards. If you place the image on one side and additionally information on the back, you will be able to familiarize yourself with the art faster than just reading a textbook. Studies have shown that flashcards enable active recall, which forces the brain to memorize new material.
