Many students who were enrolled in this course agreed that the professor was an excellent speaker and her lectures were engaging and interesting. Students were excited about their field trips to the BMA and felt it have them the hands-on experience that they needed in dealing with museums. The class felt organized, fun, and compelling. However, many students felt that the course readings were dense and were not fully related to the class. In addition, students would have found it helpful to have PowerPoints along with lectures because often times they missed what she was saying because of how quickly she spoke. Suggestions for improvement include: fewer readings, more discussion, and a new projector that works. Prospective students shouldn’t be discouraged from taking this course if they aren’t an Art History major.
