Review #1 / Course: ART 4409 / Instructor: WALSH J
Professor Walsh is HANDS DOWN the hardest Art History professor. An A is a very hard grade to get in his class. Each exam has an essay that's worth 60% of your exam grade and you have 30 minutes to write it, but each "question" has about 4 questions that you have to cover and his grading is very subjective. Also, he just a little mean. If you speak up in class he will make you feel dumb if you've said something unintelligent. take someone else.

Review #2 / Course: ART 1440 / Instructor: WALSH J
Walsh knows his stuff and expects you to memorize slides of artwork and periods in history. Does require a lot of time outside of class to study, but the material is interesting and he's really enthusiastic about teaching it. Offers bonus opportunities. Rarely curves.

Review #3 / Course: ART 4404 / Instructor: WALSH J
the tests are very hard - there is A LOT of material for exams, but only a little of it is actually on the test. he doesn't grade too hard. there is a paper and daily quizzes you must study for. if you go to every class, you don't need the book.

Review #4 / Course: ART 1440 / Instructor: WALSH J
I had already taken a 4000 level art history class and the 1000 level was harder.He was absent for the tests so I had to ask the TA who knew nothing. I still feel he misgraded my tests.He was difficult to meet with outside of class.Don't take Walsh!

Walsh has ridiculously hard exams that are difficult to prepare for. Get ready for a lot of studying and reading if you take him.

Review #6 / Course: ART 4404 / Instructor: WALSH J
Gives daily quizzes that you must study for. They can really hurt your grade if you don't attend class or if you don't study.
