ART HIS 21, taken Winter 2017 Submitted Dec. 8, 2018 Grade Received: A+

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.

ART HIS 21, taken Fall 2021 Submitted Dec. 4, 2021 Grade Received: B

The lectures were so long….BUT The TAs and professors really love art so discussions were fun and interesting. I got new perspective about old buildings and objects that I’m so excited to apply when I travel!

ART HIS C115D, taken Fall 2017 Submitted March 8, 2018 Grade Received: B+

Dr. Cohen is not often the best lecturer and her voice is often quiet, but she is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her subject (Paris and her beloved Sainte-Chapelle).

The readings for the class were extensive and difficult to grasp. Initially I read them all, but it became burdensome, plus we never discussed them in class, so I gave up reading them altogether after the mid-term.

The exams were relatively easy, slides, short answer questions, etc. There was a lot to memorize, but that's an art history course so I cannot complain too much about that.

I'm taking her again this quarter and am enjoying the class. After two classes with her, it seems like she teaches at a graduate level, perhaps that's just me, but that's what it seems like based off of lecture and reading materials.
