AFRO005 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Very easy class. I hate to read and procrastinate a lot. In his class I was excited to read and do the work because he's so cool and his class is great. None of the work is unnecessary. He is very passionate about AFRO studies. Take minimal notes or take pictures of the slides and you'll kill the essays and get an A.

AFRO 121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A+

Dr. Beatty is a phenomenal professor & is passionate about what he teaches. I took his Egyptian Hieroglyphs & I have learned so much about the language and culture. Everyone needs to take his class in order to have a fulfilling Howard experience! The workload is a lot but that's the whole point because how else do you expect to learn the language.

Dr. Beatty is a very smart man. There is not much he doesn't know about the subject matter. He does give a lot of unnecessary work, but its very possible to get an A. He offers a lot of extra credit.

introAfroAme Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

okay if your looking for a class that is easy DO NOT take this class. I hated it he gave a lot of busy work that was unnecessary and he gives no study guides but he's cool outside of class. But if your like me just trynna pass then your not looking for a friend.

Dr. Beatty is very interesting and is really into history. He can be all over the place in lecture but its very interesting. Overall, he is a good teacher and has a passion for his students and his subject. He does req. a lot of reading and writing but its nothing drastic. He is not going to give you a grade, you will have to work for the A

Great teacher and great man! He focuses heavily on Africa and Egypt in the beginning and then goes more to black issues during and after slavery. His first love is Egyptian history.

Was told by another student to take his class. I wasn't disappointed. He is opinionated, but very insightful and backs up his arguments with alot of interesting information. Take this class if you really want to learn about Black history. Do the bi-weekly's and you'll be fine.

Howard needs more professors like Dr. Beatty. I didn't really care for the book, but I really enjoyed the class. You learn something new every day which is cool.

I was not an Afro-American Studies major, but his class made me change my major. I am amazed at how much he knows, especially about African history. He really cares about students and it shows everyday in class. Great professor.

I love Professor Beatty. Alot of students at Howard University are intelligent, but lazy and try to find ways to avoid work. Students who don't like Professor Beatty are students that don't want to work. It's an easy A and he is always very passionate.

Every student at Howard should take his course on Egyptian hieroglyphs. His command of this language is amazing. He took the class to New York to the MET for our final exam. Very fun class, but alot of work.

Great professor. I heard him in Freshman Seminar and wanted to take his course. Was not disappointed. You will work, but you will learn a great deal that you knew nothing about.

I love Dr. Beatty. He is very passionate about Black Studies and has great energy in class that keeps your attention. Loved learning to write my name in hieroglyphs. You can get an A, but it's alot of writing.

afro101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

His Lectures are boring but could be interesting if he didnt try so hard. Everybody in my class was on their computers or phone. Not one of the professors who geniuly care about his students. He doesnt live what he teaches, which he is very passionate about. Easy class if you do your work, not a good professor.

AFROSTUD Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This class is no joke. There is so much random material that is covered and alot of reading also. But he grades easy as far as essays. Its easy to get by, but when it comes time for exams, STUDY your butt off. I received a B in the class. if you get on his good side and visit office hours, it will help your grade out.
