This course offered an in depth overview of architecture essentially from the first signs of human construction up through the 20th century. It provided me with a lot of great background but was structured in a memorizing heavy way. Most of the exams relied on the ability to regurgitate dates and names in relation to any number of works that spanned thousands of years. Generally not too difficult if you do the readings (and daily response papers) and are willing to memorize, just time consuming.

A Global History of Pre-Modern Architecture is a rigorous course that details an abundance of different architectural styles and their development through mainly Europe. The course works as a fast paced lecture with 2 papers due a week (some focused on long readings, some on short) There are 2 fun projects throughout a semester, and 2 exams detailing everything you've learned before based on memorization.

I was not the best at architecture, but I thoroughly enjoyed the class because of Broucke. I intend to minor in art history, so I took this class for that. Broucke was incredibly accommodating for when I was sick and had other personal issues. His enthusiasm for teaching made the class a joy to attend. My only complaint is that the tests are a bit difficult, but if you know what to expect and study exactly what he says to, you will be fine. Overall a really good class and amazing professor, I would recommend.
