    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.
