    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was a good bit of work. He covered a whole lot of material in a short time and it's a lot to remember. There were times when he'd assign a 2 page journal on Monday and have it due on Wednesday, which was a little stressful. That being said, I learned a lot in this class and it really helped me understand art and how it affects society. It taught me how to look at art and think about it's deeper meaning.

    Course highlights:

    Starting with Ancient Greece, we learned about art, philosophy, architecture, music, and literature up till the late 20th century. He also talked about major historical events and how they affected changes in art.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to write a good bit! There are 8 two-page journals, but they're single spaced! If you have a thought about something, say it! Dr. Simmons really values well thought out discussion. If you have time to do extra credit, he makes it readily available and it really helps your final grade. For the tests, the part I found most difficult was "slide identification." This is were he shows a work of art and you have to write the title. It can be confusing, so it's important to be really familiar with the art.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor made it extremely easy to learn, a lot of notes but definitely worth the listening. I retained so much and walked away with way more than what I thought.

    Course highlights:

    I gained all kinds of knowledge about the Roman Empire, Renaissance, and the Enlightenment. I also learned how to listen and write extremely fast all at once!

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to show up and also be open to listen and wide awake every class, would not suggest taking this class in the morning if you are not a morning person. He talks a lot and gives you so much information!
