ARTH 1380 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B+

Not the hardest class, but you will have to really make an effort for a decent grade. Steinhoff is very passionate about Art History and wants her students to engage and to grasp what she is teaching. There is a lot of information to memorize. Powerpoints don't really help, you're better off taking your own notes.

ARTH 1380 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This is not an easy class. You have to put a lot of effort in this class. If you are taking any other hard class than don't take this. The material for this class does not completely come from the textbook so if you miss a lecture, that is it. Powerpoints are not helpful.

ARTH 1380 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Not a very difficult course. 2 exams, 2 papers, 4 quizzes. Exams-read ppts, pay attention in class, and take good notes. Papers are not difficult, and grading is fair. The subject is pretty interesting, but she likes to drag on a lot and loves discussion (won't force you though). Good core class for GPA boost. You still have to do your part though.

ARTH 1380 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Overall easy class if you study and review the notes. She sometimes can put you to sleep but if you pay attention you will easily get an A or B. There are 4 quizzes and 2 test which are fairly easy to do. There are two papers which are related and fairly easy to do. Overall good professor and good class to get an A or B

I really enjoyed this class. She was super clear in her expectations on the first day of class, and had a guideline of what the class entailed. It involves four test (one will be dropped), two papers (which build on each other), and multiple quizzes, which are pretty easy. YOU HAVE TO ATTEND CLASS.

I thought the class would be a drag but it was a fairly interesting and easy class. Great professor. When you study make sure you look at the Quiz in addition to the study material because a lot of the quiz questions are on the exam

Though at first I did not like Professor Steinhoff, she is extremely knowledgeable at what she does. She will teach you accordingly and prepare you for the 2 tests. Quizzes and papers are easy. She's actually pretty nice. She gave us Thanksgiving week off and an off day after every test. I fell asleep every other time, but still made a high A.

ARTH1380 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Easy A/B class. If you go to class and pay attention, you'll hardly have to study. Paying attention is half the battle. She can put you to sleep, but if you stay awake, I can almost promise you'll get an A. The 4 quizzes are easy and can be Googled, the 2 papers are straight forward. I worked on both the night of and got an A.

ARTH1380 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This was my blow off class for the semester. I went to 3-4 classes total and will probably make a B minimum. All you need to do well know how to write good papers/know how to bs papers well and quizzes the answers are found by googling or looking through e-book. Never read the book, just listened to e-book and slept. Easy class.

ARTH1380 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I came with 0 knowledge of the subject and I think she is pretty easy. There is 2 tests, 2 papers, and 4 quizzes. The tests are MC and are mostly common sense/little history. Papers are a joke. Started both on the day they were due and Aced both. Bs ftw. Quizzes are based on class lectures but I just google my way there. Read the book maybe twice.

Great Professor. Really helps you understand the material as a whole instead of memorizing minute details about art. There are 2 tests that are multiple choice, 2 papers, and 4 quizzes, all of which a super easy!

Go to class, read the book, study for the test with her online guides, if you have half a brain you'll make an A. If you're lazy you'll make a B. This is art history. Notice the word art before history, I was bummed this is not a history course at all, it is just a bearable art course.

Best professor ever. She drives you to fully understand the material.This is not a class to memorize vocabulary terms and dates but truly master Art History..so you can know what she's talking about. Her lectures are very interesting. The tests are essay. The papers no so easy (just DONT leave until the last minute).Highly recommended!!!

She's a good prof, helpful and understanding IF you are working hard in her class. Expects participation and is very responsive on Blackboard. Gives very detailed study guides for each test. NOT tech savvy but tries. Knows her subject well. Writing papers worst part, don't wait till last min to do paper! xtra credit opportunities.

She was a good professor, very detailed, not the most interesting subject if you're not into art nor history. But she does a good job of getting through all the material, helps to review the book and stuff she posts online.

Professor Steinhoff is overall a decent teacher. The class is interesting at times, but sometimes boring and repetitive. The guidelines for the second paper were not too clear, but I ended up making an A on it somehow. Not too bad of a course. I recommend her unless you know of a great teacher for this subject.

Prof Steinhoff makes this class extremely interesting. I love this stuff so I went to class a lot but you don't have to go always to get a good grade. Just make sure you do her online study guides prior to the tests. Paper topics are fairly easy and fun to write. Take for visual arts requirement!
