Mr Farrell is amazing! I had him several years ago at the U of Windsor and I still refer to my art history notes as I teach elementary school art! Love him!

Farrells classes are some of the most interesting courses I have ever taken. He never failed to keep class interesting and made you want to attend every class! He is the most incredible professor I have ever had.

Comment:
90-Minute lecture that purely surveys notable works of the Late Medieval-Modern period. 50% Mid, 50% Final (both take-home). For an 830am course, Professor Farrell's immense charisma/knowledge will leave you in good-spirits onward. His espoused emphasis of unconventional thinking, and Carlin-like humour, will make this course one to remember.

This prof is on another level. The class might not have all too much structure, but he is legit amazing. Take his Saturday class in Detroit and your life will be 10x better. I've got mediocre grades from this prof, but hes still one of my favs.

Horrible professor. Wont provide anything to review. If you are weak at taking notes, expect failing the course.

Here's the thing, if you can be passionate about what you are learning then you will be fine in this class. If you expect to get an A because you're a straight A student then forget that. You need to be attentive to detail, and understand the beauty behind it all to fully appreciate the class. Entertaining, and charming prof, especially at 8:30am.

Tall, Blond hair, Blue Eyes and Devastatingly handsome. Those that have taken this class know that phrase well. His knowledge and passion for art and art history is second to none. PLUS, he makes it enjoyable. Try taking an 830am class with him and you won't need coffee. Energy is contagious.

I hated that there was no textbook for this class. The Farrel talked way to fast, and tested on unimportant details that are easily missed in the lectures. U will do poorly if u don't record the lectures. U basically need to copy wat he says word for word if u want an A.

Worst excuse for a professor I've ever seen. Every lecture is Farrell 101, telling his life story with utter disregard for time wasted. "I digress" 247. I don't mind that he is offensive. Sample midterm question: Which of these four artists don't use flattened columns, which were barely discussed. I am a straight A student, save for this course.

Amazing prof! I was expecting a boring art history class but he makes everything super interesting. The fact that the midterm and final are each worth 50% does make it stressful but if you go to class and pay attention to details you'll do fine. Makes you want to wake up for an 8:30 class, absolutely HILARIOUS!

hilarious and extremely knowledgeable in this subject but worst professor I ever had. midterm ( worth 50%) was pushed back till a few weeks before the final. a majority of the class failed or got 50's. He then decided to make the take home final worth 100% of our grade which was very stressful. Rude and disrespectful

heard great things about him but WHOA. -recording lectures is almost a MUST -one 50% midterm, one 50% final; open book but horrifying questions -no posted office hours, doesn't take emails -disrespectful, unprofessional sincerely, a 3rd yr. honour student suffering with my lowest mark yet (this was the last credit of my art history minor)

He is hilarious! For being 70 something, he moves around, and he even jumped on tables! You have to go to his class in order to do well, because he does take attendance but he has take home exams and midterms which is awesome.

Fabulous prof. Most interesting art history class I have ever taken. His exam is only hard if you don't pay attention in class. He makes class interesting and entertaining, and clearly enjoys teaching. 10/10 do recommend.

Hottest professor ever. Enjoyed many classes with him. Knows everything about Art and History; makes students feel like they are traveling in time to ancient Greece, Egypt or Medieval Europe. Kind of looks like an almighty Pharaoh (Farrell /Pharaoh kind of sounds the same). Out of all the professors he is the best. THE BEST. Thank you Dr. Farrell
