    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is awesome. Brandhorst is weird and quirky and makes any class he teaches so much fun. He's also pretty lenient when it comes to assignments or essays if something comes up.

    Course highlights:

    There's a mandatory museum assignment, but it is a really good experience. You have to go into the city and visit a museum, and then write a response essay to the prompt provided. The class is mostly essay based but the essays are pretty straightforward for the most part.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you do the assigned readings. Otherwise you'll reach the end of the course and have to read all the essays the night before the final exam.
