His lectures are very dry and the textbook is totally unnecessary. All of the primary sources can be found through a quick Google search (and then you can Ctrl+f to find the answers to the Moodle quizzes). Exams are fairly average in difficulty but they graded the paper very lightly so that helped my grade significantly.

Gallia was very hard to understand, he would start a sentence and go off on something else. Also, you will need to read the textbook carefully because he does not cover everything he requires you to know for the midterm and final in his lecture. 30% of grade is based on discussion (with TA) participation.

Meek and mousy at times, but knowledgeable. Flexible in working with students and really knows his stuff. We often had movies on random slow-moving days, too! I'd recommend him. Watch out for TAs, though.

Andrew Gallia has probably been one of the worst professors I have experienced at the U. He is a nice guy but he is entirely useless for learning anything. I was very interested in the topic beforehand but after his class, he kind of ruined the topic for me. Went to the class nearly every day and it is a Snoozefest. Terrible lecture voice.

Rome. Great prof, knows what he is talking about and you can tell he loves to talk about it. Really easily drawn into the class. Take one of his classes if you can.
