    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great introductory class for art history. The class is small so you are able to ask specific questions and really delve into the subject. You build a vocabulary throughout the length of the course and are able to see motivations between architectural styles.

    Course highlights:

    Watching Christian dogmas take form through art and architecture was a really compelling part of this course. Many churches were constructed to emphasize light with both reflective surfaces as well as a clerestory, or upper row of windows implemented to allow light to shine down on the congregation. Light was often a representation of holiness and Christ, and the architecture of churches sought to incorporate this.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class requires 3 response papers, a final paper, a midterm, and a final exam. All of these projects take several hours so be aware of time management. Set aside an appropriate amount of time for each assignment, and don't be afraid to reach out to your classmates to study and discuss potential essay questions for exams.
