POS 3703 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Lets start off by saying this professor is awesome! yes the class can be a little gruesome, but as long as you do the discussions for each chapter and complete the assignments on your textbook you will be fine. I do warn you, you must reread the chapters to understand the material, and take notes.

"Assignments galore" "Tough Grader" "Tests are tough"

Not helpful, he actually makes you feel like you are wasting his time if you have a question. Keep questions to a minimum unless you want like feeling like a idiot as he is good at it. He's quick however to tell you what you have done wrong in on assignments discussions. 2nd class of his, thought since I knew his style it would be better. WRONG!

PUP4003 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof Jewett is one of the 'easiest' teachers I've ever take. Not because the work is easy but because you know exactly what is expected of you at all times and all the responsibility lies on you! There are no surprises in this class! He is a very fair grader and gives great feedback on your work! I will definitely take him as many times as I can!

POS3182 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B

It took me a while to get used to his teaching style, but after a few online quizzes (every two weeks) his class was a breeze. Attendance is taken every day, but you get extra credit for going and answers to test questions. He is SUPER helpful with any problems you are having. TAKE HIM.

This professor is amazing! Super helpful and great feedback. For a regular semester you have a quiz and discussion due every two weeks. For every quiz you can take it twice to improve your grade. I highly recommend this teacher!

PUP-4003 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

As an online Summer A session class, there was double the work load bc there was half the usual class time. Prof Jewett tells you this. Essay & test on 2chapters from 2books every week, but both were easy if you read the chapters. He drops the lowest week's scores. I could've gotten an A if I'd followed the syllabus & posted 8 responses each week.

Took class online this summer. Taking this class for summer was hard as there was a LOT of reading & writing, but Prof Jewett is very fair & understanding. Organize yourself & you'll do fine. Great time and great professor!

Great professor, really cares about his students, attendance is not mandatory, but is worth extra credit on tests. gives you all the notes and basically the questions that will be on the test. Easy grader, take him if you can!

POS 2041H Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Even though I do not have much interest in politics, I enjoyed this class. There are 3 tests which are fairly easy and are based on his notes. There are also discussions every class about the assigned reading. The only downside to this course was that there are five papers, which are a lot of work. However,an A is definitely achievable.

POS 3182 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Read and print out the notes he gives you. that's what will be on the test. The books can be found online so don't buy them. must go to class in order to pass plus if you go he will give hints on what to study as well as give extra credit for being there. When going over the different counties take notes its also on the test. 2 papers really easy

Not a fan of his teaching style at all. The way he grades papers, he always manages to find something "wrong" with what you wrote. He is one of the nicest guys, but a terrible professor! He is willing and eager to answer your questions. Overall, if you're looking for an easy class, this is not it. I got a B in the class, but has to work my butt off

Great professor, 3 tests, 2 papers, a current event, attendance and class participation is all easy. You can get C's and D's on the tests and still get a B in the class. YOU MUST STUDY EVEN A LITTLE, do the papers and attend class and you should not have a problem passing the class if not get a B or even an A. Dont procratinate on the papers!

POS0000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

His tests are tough and very broad, he doesn't let you know what to study but asks you exact questions that you would only know if you memorized them. Unfair grader, boring lecturer, he literally reads off his notes to the class. Really, really nice guy, but not a good professor! Would not recommend him to people :(

3 tests and they are difficult, class notes are not very clear. He can be rude at times and talk to you like your beneath him. Do not recommend, not worth it.

So incredibly boring, and a tough grader when it comes to the papers. I had him for a morning class and could barely keep my eyes open. He expects a lot of work out of you and acts like you don't have any other classes to work on but his. Nice guy, terrible professor. I have no idea why people like him so much. Wouldn't take him again.

TAKE HIM! He expects you to put forth work but gives you very detailed guidelines about what he expects. He gives you extra credit just for going to class! It would be hard to fail this class.

Three exams, two papers, and participation make up your grades. Lectures are dull and boring, though he tries to make them interesting will stupid jokes. Exams are easy if you study the outline he gives you. Media market paper was a pain to write, but if you follow his example you will be fine.

Honors. Five 1500 (about) word essays. 3 books to read. He is a great professor, who loves and mastered his study. The only complaint is that this class is a LOT of work if you are taking it just to fill your Gen. Ed. You'll get what you put into the class, but if you want a piece of cake class , because POS might not be your major, perhaps avoid.

Dr. Jewett is a nice guy but his class is remarkably boring. The textbooks are incredibly boring and the material in one of them is all inclusive on tests. The papers are a joke, the tests are very easy and he barely lectures. Not to mention the redundant current events. Easy class and you will be disappointed if you were hoping to learn a lot.
