    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course. The lecturer was very enthusiastic and active in promoting classroom discussions.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights were: classroom discussions, interesting learning material, light homework load, and fair exams. Personally, I learned about differing art styles and how many of them may seem bizarre, it is interesting to see the philosophy behind them and their evolution throughout history.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up to class and participate. Tests are mostly essay based so if you have a rapport with the teacher, you are more likely to get the benefit of the doubt when your exam is graded.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to an individual intimidated by or saturated in Art. I think no matter where you are in your exposure to the art world, this course would ultimately serve you well. With little experience learning art historical terms and movements, or previous education in Art History, the subject matter traveled through by the end of the semester would surely open you up to new information whether it be in formal analyzation or a starting point for learning foreign cultures.

    Course highlights:

    Formal analyzation is the ultimate skill worked on through this course. Beginners or predisposed art viewers welcomed, alike. Starting from Paleolithic artwork of Tanzania, through the first civilization of Ur, up through Europe, and around to the Americas, there is sure to be something to spark your interest and stretch your capacity of understanding function versus aesthetic value, present in all Art.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do take thorough notes as they will assist you greatly in papers and exams.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher was very energetic. The book for the course was not required since the professor uploaded the readings online. The professor was always happy to teach the class . The review guides were very helpful for the final.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about Neolithic art , Paleolithic, a brief history of Roman and Egypt. We also touched on Byzantine art as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention the lectures and come for attendance.
