Amazing teacher! Very knowledgable about the information! No exams, just 3 essays and a final essay, all of which are very flexible in their topic. I enjoyed learning and going to class. He replies to emails promptly and is very helpful. He's very enthusiastic about history and makes it fun. Absolutely one of my most favorite teachers and classes.

Dr. Hagerty is the man! I had no interest in British history before taking this class but he made it fun and interesting. Only papers, no tests, and he is extremely helpful in deciding research topics. Highly recommended!

He was a cool guy, he was really interested in the subject. Class was pretty easy and he always gave study guides for the tests. I had to study for two solid afternoons for the three tests-- one of looking up the terms, another memorizing them. Solid class

Great Professor! Ended with an A. Takes attendance. Tests on the * vocab words he gives you. Expect to write essays. Only a midterm and final but they were mainly essays he gives you the prompts before the test. Mainly just remember you can't completely blow this class off when it comes to studying for tests. If you study you'll end with an A.

AMAZING PROFESSOR! Nice guy. Easy class, but TA sucked (he did the grading). No tests, all reports/papers. Turned in my final research paper 4 days late on accident but he didnt take any points off when i explained. In class notes on paper topics are the only ones you need. Highly Recommended.

He is clearly passionate about the topic of xenophobia in modern europe. however, there is no pressure to really pay attention to what he is talking about - even though most of it is very interesting. His TA is not very helpful, he does most of the grading though. The inflections in BHs voice make his lectures about certain topics seem overdramatic

This course is a total joke. I feel terrible saying that, because hagerty's a nice, likable guy...but the course? Ha. Not an easy joke either. The assignments are juvenile and the expectations impossible. Book reports, "note quizzes" that you Surprise! are told day of you can't use notes on. Lectures ramble, uninformative. TA does all the grading.

Professor Hagerty is awesome! Lectures are mandatory but he keeps them interesting. Sometimes he gets off topic but he always ties it back in. I'm taking another course from him because I liked him so much.

Such a wonderful professor and nice man. Also, very understanding if issues occurs. I had printing problems the day my final paper was due and he let me email it to him. There are papers due almost every week, so the class can be demanding at times. Also, classes are mandatory! Other than that, I enjoyed and recomnend the class.

Prof Hagerty taught my Writing Seminar, US-British Relations. The course is demanding only in that you are going to be writing CONSTANTLY. But, I have to say I've improved more as a writer in his class than any other. He's incredibly helpful and holds wonderful discussions. Willing to let you explain your point and willing to clarify his.

Excellent lecturer. Ended up doing a decent bit of writing, but I can't say I mind it too much. If you are strong willed in you're arguments and provide good evidence he's a pretty good grader (even if he doesn't agree with you). Highly recommended.

Irish in America. Great class, wonderful professor. This class is the reason I became a history major. Lectures had nothing to do with the quizzes or papers, but Bernie made it fun to go to. Sets one class aside for Irish music, dancing, and other such fun. Great guy, still talk to him when I see him in the History department.

Excellent professor. Makes every lecture interesting and entertaining. Very good at facilitating useful discussions. Clearly he enjoys what he does and knows a lot about it. Sort of tough grader, but has useful comments.

If you like story telling, then this is the class for you. Makes a class that had no potential one that was very bearable, if not more that that. The exams are pretty easy as he tells you what is going to be on them. Probably the only class I have taken so far where I am not constantly looking at my watch to see how much time is left....

Boring lectures. Mandatory attendence bc it's not necessary. I got a perfect on a quiz I didn't even read for..just made stuff up. I'd take it for an easy history requirement. Paper sucked though. I did it on alcoholism because I was taking an alcoholism class. If i hadn't been, it probably would have been hard because Iused class to do other work.

Hes a very good teacher. I'm not a history person but he makes it as if hes telling you a story instead of teaching you history. Always willing to help! Quizzes are very easy if you read and grad student grades the papers but very fairly it seems. No tests, just 2 book reports and a final paper. Definitely take him if you get a chance!!
