The class was interesting and had some fun topics. But his instructions on the papers you have to write are really vague. And working things out with Dr. Peck is a pain. PS chose a easy topic for the research paper

Dr. Peck is by far the best professor at BYU. He brings stories to life and is fascinating to listen to. His stories are as good as the incredibly brilliant books that we writes. If you haven't read his books, you are missing out on an adventure in your mind like no other. "A Short Stay in Hell" is an all time favorite. You won't put it down!

Class was pretty much useless. He's an interesting guy, but it was pointless to go to class, even though it was mandatory because all he did was talk about his opinions, which he tested us on later.

This class is great! Much more eye-opening than I thought it would be. Dr. Peck led great discussions and got us thinking. The TA sections and discussions were great too; I really liked figuring out my thought processes and talking over relevant issues with other students. There's some pretty dull reading and some test questions are kind of vague.

I can honestly say he's been my favorite professor here at BYU because I'm a graduating senior and have had a lot of them. Cares deeply about the subject matter taught and about his students and will go out of his way to meet with you and help you with anything. He's respectful towards everyones comments -- even ones that are truly absurd :)

Long class with even longer readings. Even though it is suppose to be an exploration into religion and the environment it often seemed like it was heavily focused on making the religions look environmental.

Dr Peck has the most awesome stories in the world. He also has a way of helping you to understand the complexities that exist in different issues. It was an enjoyable, informative class.

Dr. Peck is a GREAT teacher. The lecture part is very interesting-due to class participation and thought experiments. The lab portion(run by TA's) is really awesome. You spend the whole time discussing the issues you studied that week. A TON, I repeat, a TON of reading. You'll be easily reading 20-50 pages (if not more) a week.

Not that hard a class, but the professor can be a little confusing. Two tests, two larger papers, and then a one page paper every other week as well as weekly readings.

Best professor at BYU. You will love his classes and his teaching style. I wish all professors were more like Dr. Peck.

Good teacher, class not what you might expect though. Its more about learning critical thinking than about the actual issues, though you learn that too. You'll have to do a bit of reading for the class, too.
