RussiaSince1914 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Heinzen is a good professor. Loves to joke around and makes the lectures relatively entertaining. He assigns several books to read plus text book. Gives quiz on book readings. Tests are tough, but he is a very forgiving grader. Final paper is based on the Harvard Project. Lots of work, but I highly recommend his class.

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.

RussiaSince1914 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/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.

HISTRUS Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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.

RUSSIA 1914 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

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.

HIST101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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!

HISTMETH Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.

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!!
