I graduated with a BA in History in 1986. Professor Curran was an outstanding Civil War History teacher. Today I teach history and still remember Professor Curran. I remember his kindness in helping someone in trouble. He challenges you to be your best. Go to every class. You will learn.

Awsome prof. Optional attendance. Knows more than anyone could fit in thier head. Show up once a week and you will get the information you need. 2 essays. No exams and no final. Was able to get an A without trying.

Poor Dr Curran, Yes every class no matter what becomes "irish history" and he says "in this framework" alot. I took him 5 times and I loved him. You will have a 10 page paper, but you can re submit it as many times until you get an A. Tests are easy, 10 questions, study them, know them, Get an A.

He's 20yrs overdue for retirement.Cant get a straight answer out of him and everything has to do "within this framework". did well but that was because I wrote a 16pg term paper.most of the time listened to him argue with a 99yrold****in the cla

HORRIBLE TO THE TENTH POWER. DON'T TAKE HIM. YOU'LL FALL ASLEEP IN HIS CLASS AND STILL SEE HIM RAMBLING ON AND ON ABOUT NOTHING IN YOUR DREAMS. THE GUY SOUNDS LIKE HE'S READING A 500 PAGES BOOK WITH ONE LONG PARAGRAPH WITH NO COMMAS IN BETWEEN SENTENCES.

He is a very hard teacher!You may think that since he doesn't require attendence this class will be great, but it is really not. Midterm=25%,Final-25%,termpaper=50%must be a minimum of 10 pgs)meaning if you don't write 20 you'll get a C.

Within this framework, we would have the realization that...Curran is a waste of time. I got a B+ in the class, but his class itself is a waste of time. The class should be called: "My Daughters and My Republican Brother Are Very Boring"

His midterm and final is unreasonable. He asks one question on each and that is to tell how the readings and the lectures have helped or not helped you understand the materials that were covered in the classroom. He is horrible and your worst nightmare.

People may get put off cause hes a tough grader.but you have to look at it as a challenge. If you want help, make sure to see him often. Very helpful in my research paper on philhellenes and final. If you get F on your 1st test..no prob if u improve
