Comment: I loved Dr Shelton!! She was super passionate about her field and it always showed through in lecture. Some of the material can be very dry/all about memorizing dates and numbers, but there's a large portion dedicated to Ancient Greek architecture/art which was super interesting to me. I took it for a breadth, and although you def have to study to get an A, I would recommend this class. Kelsey was my GSI, and also a super awesome/helpful one at that.

Comment: This professor is quite upbeat about the subject and can go off on tangents, but she really knows her stuff and will definitely answer any questions you have! Definitely bring a laptop to class and be prepared to google images and place them into your notes, since her exams involve slide identifications and she doesn't give those to you until it's a few days before the actual midterm. Although the course is introductory, it goes very in depth to specific types of pottery, names, time periods, and at first it can be very confusing. The textbook helped for clarifying dates. Greek mythology isn't touched on until the very last couple weeks of class, when Greek myths are actually depicted on pottery, so don't take this course if you just have an interest in myth! However, there is no "final" exam, just 3 midterms that are all formatted the same, and the information isn't cumulative which was really nice. An easy P/NP class, and if you really like amphoras go for the letter grade!

Comment: Very detailed exams. Make sure you take good notes in class! It's helpful to bring a laptop and find the images that she puts up on the powerpoints online as you're typing up notes, so that you can go back later and recognize them.

Comment: Professor Shelton was very enthusiastic about Greek archaeology. Her lectures contained a lot of information and she went into great detail, which you needed to remember for the exams. I would recommend taking a different class to fulfill the breadth requirement.

Comment: The class was interesting and the teacher was super nice. The assignments and reading were kinda boring, and the exams alright (nothing to stress over if you studied). It's cool that she doesn't make her finals cumulative. One less thing to worry about.

Comment: There is a lot of reading and even MORE information in lecture--lecture is where you'll be getting a majority of the info you need for exams (three midterms, non-cumulative). She basically talks at you with all of the important stuff, which is why the class would benefit from some sort of textbook rather than primary sources. First exam was a breeze, but don't be fooled: the other two are much harder. Get a good GSI (like I did) and you should be fine. Wouldn't recommend taking this as a breadth though, unless it's P/NP.
