    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is incredibly for both majors and non majors. There is a lot of work that goes in outside of class time. If you are an interior design or architecture major though, this class will provide you with vast knowledge of design and architectural movements throughout history. You will apply this knowledge in your studio classes in ways you would not expect.

    Course highlights:

    While the three projects that are required during the duration of the course are extremely difficult, they teach you a lot. The three projects for 221 include the creation of a manifesto, the design of a roman bath and an indo-arian temple. The graduate students in this course are hand selected my the professor himself so they are very reliable. The professor himself is passionate about the topic and knows an incredible amount about it, making him a great resource for all architecture/interior design students.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're passionate about learning about new and exciting topics outside of your major, take this course. But, just know it is a lot of work. The amount of work is intended to expand your knowledge on the topic though and can help you immensely on exams.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course material was very interesting, I learned a lot but it was difficult. The professor is somewhat disorganized, at least to how I am used to studying, but he is a lot of fun and while architecture is not my major, I still considered taking the second semester of the course.

    Course highlights:

    Initially, as an architecture history course, I thought we would be following a chronological path through the great civilizations of the world. Instead, the procession through time and across the globe was very hard for me to follow, skipping from recent history straight back to ancient Greek and Roman then to India and back to North America. There was a lot of information I learned, but it was not organized in a way that made sense to me.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    A lot of student were making flashcards for each building. This is a bad way to study, because it isolates each building. A better way is to group buildings together either by architect, chronologically, or by style.

    Start the projects early and always redo them for a better grade. Your GPA will thank you.
