This class is very difficult but very interesting. The professor is fair but challenging. There is a LOT of reading. He's an intense dude, but in a good way--professional, no BS. Has a sense of humor about himself and life in general

Loved the class! I am taking him again this semester. Funny guy, needs his podium everyday, but will do anything to help you succeed. Heavy reading and he expects you to read. If you do the reading easy A.

Prof. Heinzen is very knowledgeable. If you enjoy history, you will most certainly enjoy his class. He can be hard to approach at times but he is willing to help you if you ask. Overall a good prof. if you like a bit of "dry" humor.

He has very high standards. If you are not doing the work, yes, you will get crushed. But its fascinating stuff lectured by a super knowlegable guy who is very intense. He's also funny but it's a kind of grim sense of humor. I love him but he's not for everyone. He will do everything he can to help students. No BS from him I think he's great prof.

Funny guy, interesting to listen to. A tremendous amount of reading for his class. Essentially his lectures are worthless if you don’t do the readings, & his test are impossible if you don’t do the readings. He expects that you know as much about Russia as he does.

The professor is extremely hard and his class is labor intensive. However, you learn so much from it..I'd say it's totally worth it! He's extremely helpful and wants you to do well in his class. Make sure to have all of the textbooks before the class starts!

This guy is the man. Really knows his stuff and is a good lecturer. He's also a very funny guy, which makes classes fun to go to. Demanding but fair. Ask him about his appearance on History IQ!

Professor Heinzen is an extremely engaging and professional scholar. He is a legit historian, so his classes aren't easy; be prepared to learn. He has a wonderful sense of humor, and made full use of it the very few times class discussions wandered off topic. He is a very good professor, I will take more classes instructed by him.

Was very happy that I took his class. I was concerned of the workload and difficulty, but he turned out to be one of my favorite professors. He really knows his stuff and is very engaging. It's a lot of work, but worth it!

Only hard cause you have to write the research paper but if your in the major you need this class anyway so take him. He is really cool and extremly easy. I was switching my major and didnt have time to write the paper so he gave me an incomplete and said I can hand it in whenever. I never did it though so I got an F. Great Guy Take him!!

He is very smart and he knows this. With that said, once you get past the first couple classes and he scares off all the slackers, his real personality comes out. He is a very nice man. He will make you work hard. If you give him your all he will work with you. The work load for this course is hard, you must know that going in. Oh and he is funny.

Tough class. Probably the hardest that I have had at college so far. After this class you will know whether you have what it takes to be a history major. Dr. Heinzen is a great guy and is very helpful, especially while you are working on your research paper. He knows so much about Russia as well. I got a B+ in this class but I worked very hard.
