ARTH100 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Hilarious" "Participation matters" "Tests are tough"

I have a really hard time memorizing and that's kind of what the beginning of this course is about so if you don't want to memorize 50 monuments and periods before midterms, well that's Art History

Love Art! He's funny and engaging, made art history fun to learn. Willing to help outside of class and very Clear about what he wants. Be engaging in class and ask questions if you have any. He's a well respected and definitely one of my favorite professors.

Survey II Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Tough Grader" "Amazing lectures" "Would take again"

One of if not the best professors I've had at SCAD, in or out of the Art History department. His classes were tough but worth it. His lectures are interesting, even at 2p lull, and his field trips usually don't suck. If you get the chance, take one of his classes. You won't regret it.

ARTH110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B

My previous experience with Art History at SCAD Survey I was very negative. But Difuria somehow tricked me into caring about the past and now I know it is important for the present. Difuria! You mad man!

ARTH 463 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B

Class was engaging and full of discussions. Just about everyone got involved which was nice, but what I disliked about this class was the way he commented on assignments. He would start off his critique with making rude comments that are more hurtful then helpful, then tell you what needs to be fixed. Its uncalled for.

ARTH 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Arthur DiFuria was an incredible teacher. He has a phenomenal vocabulary and the way that he talks is very engaging. The tests are very easy as long as you do the homework and reading. He is a very helpful, understanding, and sometimes goofy teacher. I cannot express enough love for him!

Organized, professional, flexible, and very funny. I learned a LOT from him. he even went to the trouble to re-organize the class when the students wrre having trouble. Also met with me because I got a C on the mid term, just to see how I would change my approach.

He works you very hard and insists on a high level. I was glad. The class was full of slackers and he gave them no quarter. More professors at SCAD should be like that.

ARTH-380 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I took this class to fill an ARTH elective. He is nice, but he is somewhat picky and I found him unhelpful even when I asked for help on understanding things. There are very few assignments in this class which is nice. His lectures are kind of everywhere though. You will HAVE to be a good note taker. And reading the book is essential.

ARTH100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

You get better grades if you read what he assigns from the textbooks. (and he doesn't assign a lot) I suggest bringing a laptop to class if you're quicker typing than writing because sometimes his info comes out a little too quick. Difficulty of tests vary. Some are easy and others almost everyone fails.

ARTH100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I have never had more eloquently spoken professor, nor one with more of an ability to inspire you about a subject. He studies the esoteric values in pieces of art, as opposed to simply memorizing dates and names. I would take him again in a heartbeat if I had the chance.

He's a really funny and cool guy. His class was pretty easy overall; half his tests were memorization and the other half were online with half a week to do them (but still fairly difficult), plus two small writing assignments and a group project. Take him :)

HIST101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This dude is awesome, and a great professor. he's easy to listen to, and very helpful. The online tests are kind of hard, but you can collaborate with fellow students, and if you pay attention in class they're no problem. I got an A in the class with three absences.

ARTH100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This professor is fantastic if you truly want to learn about art history. His tests are extremely hard, even though half of it is online. I studied for hours but never got an A. He's very nice and funny, and he makes a dull subject pretty interesting. He's also always there to help you with anything. Hard class, but I definitely learned a lot.
