    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor was engaging and as a student in his class,, I could experience his clear passion for what he was teaching. The material could have easily been taught as straight facts from a history book, but the professor actively sought ways to make the learning interesting for the class. In turn, this made his material far easier to recall and remember when needed.

    Course highlights:

    By taking this course with Professor Whitmarsh, I gained a new level of appreciation for art. It is simple to walk through any museum and examine every painting or structure inside without ever going beyond deciding if it was 'pretty' or not. Through this course, I learned to appreciate the history that is kept both hidden and found in each work I come across, and I am grateful to my professor for giving me the chance to see the world around me with eyes that now search deeper than they ever had before.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Reading the chapter will always be helpful for this class and it is advisable to do the weekly assignment before starting the new chapter so you will be equipped with background knowledge on the subject to make understanding the context around the subject easier.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend Mrs. Ross as a humanities professor. She makes an effort to connect with and engage each student. Though many students find her course too difficult, it is excellent to take as a student conditioning to transfer to a university. All test information can be found in her PowerPoints, and she heavily emphasizes what will be seen on a test during her lectures.

    Course highlights:

    Mrs. Ross tries to assure students have a conceptual understanding of the history of humanities, rather than giving information meant to be memorized and regurgitated. I feel like I have a solid framework of world history in my memory bank now that I've taken her class. The best part of her class is learning about art and how it correlated with what was happening with history at the time; it give a visual connection for understanding history.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class when she says things like "remember this for me" or "remember this for testing purposes" or if she writes a vocab word on the board. These will definitely be test questions. Her test has a portion where you must name a piece of art, including artist and time period, when she shows it on the projector. You are given a list of these at the beginning of the unit. There is no reason not to get a 100 on this portion as you are literally given the answers beforehand.
