Darsan- Seeing the Divine Image in India-$5
Easiest and most interesting GE ive taken! I know it seems kind of random, but his lectures are actually very interesting. Your grade really depends on your TA because that is who is grading and writing your essay prompts, but even with a hard TA the class is still pretty easy and straight forward. I highly recommend buying his lecture notes, and you can get away with missing class because he basically just quotes his lecture notes. Its easier to remember and more interesting by going to class, however, and you get to see the pictures and the cool music he plays before class! Discussion is mandatory and there are quizzes on the readings(VERY easy, like 3rd grade level). Only two essays, one 6th week and one final paper. Also, you get to go to LACMA for free!
Selling the course reader, lecture notes, and the mandatory book you have to read all for $50. The course reader is absurdly expensive in store and mine is in great condition!
Professor Brown was very interesting and funny, and I really enjoyed the class.
I'm selling the course reader for anyone taking the class Fall 2015. It's in perfect condition! It was around $60 at the store, but I'll sell it for $30 :)
email me at ************* if interested.
An easy GE overall.

Midterm and final are both 3 essays. 2 on the slides and 1 big question. Key sites for slides and study questions are given a week or two before the exams for review.

Course reader is really expensive! It's somewhat useful for the paper and the discussion, but can be ignored. I got an A- without it.

Course: Art History 56A
As an Art History major, this class felt watered-down and vague. It's exceptionally hospitable to non-Art History majors and people without prior experience, but seems to fall flat if you were expecting an in-depth examination of Asian Art. There's very little traditional stylistic analysis and very few monuments--which makes the class easy, but not necessarily informative. Professor Brown's lectures could get a little dry, but thankfully doing the readings and attending section is enough to earn you an "A" in the course.
Brown is an awesome professor! He is completely interesting to listen to and for those that do not like Art History all that much, I suggest to you this class. It is user friendly and filled with beautiful art to boot. Every time I went to class it was a bit like a story time (not to belittle Brown at all)--he presented the art but then he would also surround the art and give it meaning through a presentation of the social background...history...I guess that is why it is art history...
Anyhow, take this class, go to lecture, you. will. be. fine.
