SOC482 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Gives good feedback" "Clear grading criteria" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Posas is very specific about what he looks for in projectsassignments so make sure you read instructions carefully And don''t be late That being said if you put in the effort you''ll do well. His lectures might drag on sometimes but he''s SUPER helpful with understanding materialassignments if you visit him during office hours.

Soc201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A-

Dr posas was a very hard professor. His class was mandatory & even if you were 5 minutes late he would shut the door on you & tell you "sorry". He would only help if you went to his office. For a 200 level class, you think it would be easier.. We had more work than my 4 other classes combined, too many assignments. Should be a writing intensive.

SOCDemo Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I actually thought he was a pretty good prof. He must have read comments on here cuz he was easy to understand this semester! He talked a lot, true, but also enjoyed students' comments and thoughts. Maybe he reformed?

ETHN100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I just got done taking his class and I have to agree with what everyone on here is saying! He is very arrogant, very snotty, and I didnt understand him or his assignments because he has a very thick accent. His class isnt hard, its just hard to sit through! Attendence is manditory and the topics are uninteresting.

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

Posas is arrogant and closed minded, he teaches HIS opinions and doesn't care about anyone else. I felt like he was blaming us (Caucasians) for all of the world's problems. I would not recommend this course.

Class was pretty easy, tests are easy. However you need to go to class everyday to get the material for the exams. If you don't go to class good luck on the exams! Huge term paper at the end of the semester.

Presents information well. Sometimes hard to understand, but his examples in class are humorous. Grades hard on attendance, you will lose a lot of points if you miss class. Overall an ok professor.

Soc. 201/446 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Got an A in both classes. Very Helpful and gives lots of extra credit. If you show up and do your work you will get a good grade. If you have a question it is very easy to approach him outside of class. If you are lazy, you wont do good...If you study and prepare for tests you will do GREAT!

ETHN 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Easy class. Many Ex. Credit opportunities by watching videos in and out of class. MC and essay tests. Good elective class if you are searching for one. Grades fair, do the work and you will do good. Need to read the book to do the essay for sure. I'd take him again if looking for a "filler" class or elective.

Very enthusiastic about his subject matter, his tests are hard, and the study guides do not always cover everything on the exam..He is very helpful and you can tell he cares about student learning - I would take another class from him

ETHN100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I think that if he could be understood a lot more then I think he could teach the class more effectively. And he shows tendency towards favortitism.
