Kind of a D-bag, really arrogant and doesnt use slides or blackboard. Be sure to write your essay outlines in paragraph form and not bullet points. Exam questions: Merit principle, sponsorship scandal, fiscal crisis of the state, Weber's features of bureaucracy, executive and legislature relationship, and a 6th i cant rmember

What an ego, widely known to be one of the worst poli sci professors at UofO.

Roman is a hero. He's reasonable if you talk to him one on one and you're not a try hard hipster that thinks a tie and a sweater vest gives them all the political knowledge in the world. Sometimes he'll give you the questions to the exam but if he doesn't then there is a lot of material to go through for the exam. Overall hilarious and really clear

He was the worst prof I ever had. I was not interested in going to class at all. I found him very egoistic and rude when it came to students suggestions and questions. Does not care about the students he teaches.

Roman is not a friendly professor. Don not come to class and expect him to be your best friend. However, you can expect to get a full and educating lecture from him. He is very open with his opinion, but he is also always willing to hear students opinion and feedback so long as you have enough information to prove your side of the argument!

doesn't use slides, stands there and talks about everything in no order. Impossible to follow and difficult to take notes worth studying.

He may be rude, difficult and often go off on tangents - but he is one of the most knowledgeable profs I have had. He does speak his opinion, and makes it clear, but does not grade you poorly for disagreeing so long as your arguments sufficiently address the issue. If you're looking for a nice guy don't bother, but looking to learn? Go for it!

This professor rambles too often and generally seems unprepared for the lectures. Class attendance is mandatory as he doesn't not use virtual campus/slideshows. His one redeeming qualities is that he lets you choose your own essay topic. The final exam was random so study everything (even the little details).

Did not direct us whatsoever towards what was expected for midterm or exam, readings irrelevant and not even mentioned in work... hard to follow lectures and very moody teacher.

Pretty good prof overall. Assignments are fairly easy, just make sure to follow directions carefully and you will be fine. Lectures are convoluted, but really quite interesting. I did not do any of the readings and did very well, just go to class and take notes. Very helpful outside of class as well, take advantage!

Very difficult to follow, especially as he did not use slides. Assignment expectations were very vague. Marking for final exam was very objective. Not approachable (no people skills). Knew his material but could not communicate it. Would not recommend this professor.

Awful! Condescending, arrogant, but scattered and disorganized, disrespectful, does not prepare lectures well and then is super demanding of his students. Not helpful at all. Terrible, terrible.

have no idea if he is a hard marker because the TA marked everything... he is so rude and pretentious it makes it really hard to like his class, interesting or not. Can't get distracted during his class cause he talks about a mile per minute with no lecture slides or anything... I REALLY HATED HIM THATS ABOUT IT

He knows a lot of information! Very helpful when you see him in office hours! Barely answers emails, thinks his opinion is the only one that matters! Was very rude to some of the students in our class.

You do not need to attend class just read the text. It's more helpful than the prof. The papers and dgd are easy, but he did not give us any hint as to what will be on the exam.

The class is an interesting class however his lectures are hard to follow if you are not familiar with his lecture and note taking style of teaching. You must go to class because he does not use VC. I found the readings very helpful and related to the class well. He is very intelligent and you can learn alot in this class.

Don't come to his class if you want an easy mark, come if you want to learn and have a real person in the front of the class telling you real things and real opinions about the real world. Life is hard and he is too, but you learn a bunch of stuff with him... btw, extremelly helpfull in his office hours!

In the beginning I hated this class; the more I attended the more I learned to love the class. There is no virtual campus which ensures you attend class. This has grown to be my favourite class, he calls out the annoying kid, and he’s super easy on the eyes ;) 8/10 in the look department.. Not joking..
