    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Super easy class, mostly group discussion! The readings are really short and easy to engage with and the in class quizzes are also super easy!

    Course highlights:

    You mostly learn how to pick apart a reading, or a movie, or a song. You learn to analyze things beyond the primary level, and you learn that everything can have more than one meaning.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just show up to class and participate in group conversations because the professor is a really cool guy and he has his own way of doing things, so just go with it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is spot on and really knows a lot about the Arts; he keeps students engaged in every lecture. For people who generally love music, literature, movies, paintings, sculptures, or all of the above, this is definitely a class to take.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot from this class about different artists and the inspiration behind all of their artworks. The focus in this class was mainly on the Renaissance, Baroque, Neoclassical, and Modern ages, so I got to learn something about each. For example, Renaissance was a transition from the Middle ages (also known as the 'Dark Ages'); it was the period of rebirth and was believed to have started in Rome, Italy.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Many students would classify this course as an easy A, but it is not totally. There are a number of readings to be done, and there are pop quizzes at any given time in class. It is also very important to listen to each musical piece a number of times cause you would most likely be tested on them.
