This class was not too bad, and Cohen offered extra credit! She was a bit monotone and quiet (and I may have fallen asleep once or twice), but she was very knowledgeable about the material. The tests were not as hard as some other Art History classes that I’d heard of; we had to memorize certain buildings and art pieces (their names, what they looked like, general time period) but we did not have to memorize their exact dates or their exact artists. Plus, Cohen provided a study guide Powerpoint slideshow that included all the pieces/general terms that would/might be on the exam. They were free response and a little stressful because everyone was flying through their blue books while Cohen changed to the next question on the Powerpoint slides. My section was a lot of information, but very helpful in helping me understand lecture material.

I took this class as a G.E. and I was met with more workload than I expected. There's a lot of reading, although nothing too out of the ordinary for North Campus courses, and you really have to study for those tests. It's mostly all memorization and there's two papers. The T.A.'s are really cool and easy graders. Professor Gerstel gives you more information during lectures than you'll be able to type down, but even if you don't do the textbook readings, the textbook has almost everything you'll need to know to study for tests (although I suggest actually fully reading the textbook if you can, it's very fascinating). Aside from that, I would highly recommended taking this class! The professor is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about medieval art and by the end of the course I was super imterested in the subject as well! These kind of classes make me wonder why I'm a South Campus major in the first place.
