The best aspects of this course included a passionate instructor, helpful assignments, and a small class size. Some students felt that the course load and the readings were particularly dense and that the expectations for writing papers were not clearly defined. Suggestions for improvement included providing clearer instructions for assignments and choosing the reading assignments more carefully. Prospective students should know that having a background in art history is helpful; they should be prepared to read and write a lot, and memorization is necessary for tests.
