Hist 2301 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Skip class? You won't pass."

Very difficult to work with, didn't feel her personality at all. Her class requires attendance but her class like an online class because all she does is done over the internet. I recommend you either take another professor at Utep or you just take an online course, because this course combines the disadvantages of both. Material is not hard though

HIST 3364 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Clear grading criteria" "Get ready to read" "Would take again"

Very awesome and knowledgeable. Class was a university course so don't expect to just walk through without working. But she makes it very interesting, always listens to students, answers questions, very awesome professor. Assignments are always easy to understand. There is a quiz every class, but if you do the reading it is super easy.

Hist 1411 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Extremely strict about attendance. Attendance recorded through online program, so must connect to internet to use. I was often counted as absent because I couldn't log on in time. Class devolved into a religious studies course at one point, talking about just religious practices rather than historical events. Lost interest at that point.

Great class! Not easy to pass but not hard either. Need to do the reading. Get the book that has primary sources!! She makes the class very interesting. She comes off as a hard professor but is really nice and helpful

HIST 2301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A+

I absolutely loved her. Her class is super easy and she keeps it really interesting. Yes there is a lot of reading but the quizzes are open book and you have an hour and a half for 20 questions and a whole week to read the chapters. I almost had a perfect score in her class. Seriously is an easy class but you do need some time. Easy A!

HIST 2301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

ALOT of reading if you want to get a good grade. Not impossible though, some of the material can be confusing because of all the different societies but an A isn't all that hard to get. Just show up to class, do the readings ahead of time and memorize terms and lectures. (it can be hard taking an exam with terms in a different language)

HIST 2301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She is a great teacher very helpful and understanding. She is strict on attendance and takes it through a system called top hat. Her test are based off her lectures and her quizzes are based off the readings for the week. I highly recommend.

HIST 2301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Armstrong-Partida is strict on attendance but she is very knowledgable in her field and I found her lectures very interesting. Exams are standard essays and reading is as to be expected in history classes (moderate to heavy). If you are into medieval or early modern history - take her class!!

HIST 2301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: WD

Rude, difficult to work with, strict on attendance; dropped the class. Don't even bother taking her. Would not recommend taking any class with her
