This refreshing course forced students to think outside of the box and delve deeper into the objects of creation and history. Many students found the professor’s hands-on approach to teaching very liberating. The course included museum visits, interactive lectures, and the exploration of unfamiliar topics. Grading for the course is only based on two tests and two essays, and many students found this harsh. It was also hard to take notes because of the pace and the slideshows mostly contained photos which did not include enough information. To improve the quality of this course, students suggested that the professor begin to put lecture notes on the slideshow so that it is easier to follow. For prospective students’ knowledge, there are no textbooks required for this course and the work load is fairly light.
