Amazingly intelligent. He lectures from memory and knows something about pretty much everything. His course was truly fascinating. Only problem is that he made his exams years ago, and doesn't change them to what he actually taught this year, but in the end hes an easy grader and weighs the percents of each piece of your grade in your favor.

Super interesting man, super interesting class. It was my first Anthropology class, and I learned so much. He is really knowledgeable and has the coolest stories to tell. There is only a midterm and a final, so it isnt that hard of a class at all.

John Burton is by far the best professor I have had at this college. I plan to ask him to be my adviser, and because of his teaching I have decided to major in Anthropology. He supplements his class with his own studies and so he is a master of the material. If you want an easy class that will expand your mind give it a try!

Very good storyteller, chooses a wide variety of texts and is extremely animated, making for a good lecture. Sometimes a little low on class discussions.

Anthro 245? Don't do it. You'll just watch movies and probably learn nothing. And then the class ends up being pretty hard.

Amazing professor. Love his tight jeans and boots - love his discussion of cows even more.

His classes are AMAZING...I highly reccommend him...Difficult to get in touch with, though. Sometimes doesn't keep appointments/respond to e-mails.

Prof. Burton is an amazing professor. I loved every class I had with him - especially language & symbolism and theory in anthropology. He is a great guy - still helpful after graduation - even though I switched careers and moved away from anthro.

John Burton is a first rate professor and a superb anthropologist. His language and symbolism class made me decide to major. Eloquent, smart, with a wry sense of humor. Highly recommend Africa course too. Treats students as young anthropologists and never talks down. Can't recommend him enough!

My favorite teacher this semester. Burton's stories are interesting and easy to follow. He's very approachable and understanding, so no worries about talking to him after class. You respect him right off the bat for his knowledge and experience in the field. Class gets our early often.

Can get boring as an early class but if you can bave the time than its def worth it. Surprisingly tough grader on the minimal amount of work assigned.

John Burton is an amazing storyteller and a very funny guy. He started off one of his lectures with "the first time i had malaria..." I liked one day when he put away his notes and told stories the whole time. Dance major in college, no less...

He's very intelligent and knows what he's talking about because he's done fieldwork in the past. He's sort of intimidating but friendly if you talk to him one on one.

He was everything you would want a college professor to be extremely intelligent, fascinating and a bit arogant all at the same time.
