    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is an art credit that requires an abundance of sitting through the professor speak with no structure causing the student not to know what to take notes on therefore causing them to write down everything chaotically, not being able to listen to the lecture.

    Course highlights:

    We talked about Plato, Hume, and some photographers and what their opinion of art was and true judges of art.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try to find a different class.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I'll be honest---I took this course because I was required to take some sort of diversity course, and it worked with my schedule. I can't say I would take this course again, but I would say I'm glad I took it. Knowledge is never wasted, and in many ways it made me think very differently about art, particularly the lecture on objects as art and art as objects.

    Course highlights:

    I'm sure this is overplayed, but I did learn to look at art differently and to think critically. It challenged my perceptions of what art is and isn't, and although my opinion remains largely unchanged, it was an interesting look into the world of art and the philosophy of it.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely read the book. Not sure if this class is even still available, but you WILL have to read the book. Don't think you'll just be looking at pretty pictures and writing "This painting sucks" on your exam. You will have to know the artist and the style of any of the works the prof might put on the exam, and you will have to offer more thoughtful insight than "This is totally a urinal upside down and it's dumb." Remember this is also a PHILOSOPHY class so you will be delving into the minds of people like Plato, so heads up.
