CPO 3003 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is a knowledgeable professor, very clear on what he wants, but very difficult! I will say I learned a lot, he answered every question every student had, but he is HARD! If you are looking for an easy A, or even B, you may want to look elsewhere...

Sure he is knowledgeable but he seems to think he is better than his setting which is never a quality of truly wise scholars or good professors. You can learn from him but expect him to treat you and all other students with very little respect.

POS3703 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Not the best polisci teacher I've had but he's okay. 2 tests, some homework, and a paper and that makes up your grade. Would not recommend taking this teacher. One thing is for sure DO NOT COME LATE TO THIS CLASS

Very well versed instructor. Tests can be a little tricky but so what. You will actually learn something and be a better knowledgable individual. He expects you to read the material and be prepared to explain what you've read. Taking him again for research methods.

I agree with the others who say Dr Gurses is tough but he is very clear in what he expects. As long as you follow his directions, sit up front, stay engaged, and do what he expects, this is a GREAT class and you will learn a lot. He is very challenging, and I appreciate that in a professor. If you're going to school to learn he's a great choice.

Professor Gurses is awesome. I learned a lot in his class. He actively engages his students when he lectures. Sit in the front! Read all the chapters and be prepared to discuss what you've read. Do not take this class if you are generally disruptive, tardy, or always on your phone or computer in class. Don't be lazy. If you are, get lost.

Well versed in foreign politics, esp middle east. Classes consist mainly of participatory discussions. Sit up front, it helps. He does have high expectations of his students and is really challenging. I learned a lot and will definately take more of his classes.

He is very knowledgeable, however I agree with others who say this is NOT an easy A class. I hate the way the grades are presented (2 tests, 1 paper, and participation).
