The best aspect of this course was the enthusiastic professor who gave interesting lectures and opened students up to new information about the city of Baltimore. The students got to the chance to see and learn a lot about Baltimore through enjoyable self-guided field trips. The worst aspects of this course included the excessive weekly homework assignments and the evening meeting time. The course would be improved if there were more class interaction, group trips, and a lighter workload for students. Prospective students should know this is a fun class, where they will learn a lot about architecture and gain a deeper appreciation of Baltimore.

The best aspects of this course included constantly engaging and interesting lectures and field trips outside of class. Some students felt that some of the history taught was slightly dry and that the weekly assignments were sometimes unhelpful in learning course material. Students suggested changing to a seminar style class with more interactive discussion during class. Prospective students are advised to take the class because the instructor's lectures are interesting and the class trips are enjoyable.
