FILM 3220 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

If you are interested in in-depth film analysis, Dudenhoeffer is the man to teach you. His class requires a great deal of work each week, but it pays off & the films/readings are usually interesting. I have taken his class three times. Be sure to pay attention to his grading scale as it is confusing. He is polite & always tries to help when he can.

FILM 3220 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Smart and knows film, I will grant him that. I signed up late for his class and so he didn't accept a paper he discussed on the first day of class. When I told him that was unfair he resented me for the rest of the semester and purposefully gave me poor grades or didn't grade things making his class a nightmare. I do not recommend him. BEWARE!

FILM 4200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I took Dr. Dudenhoeffer for FILM 4200 but also for FILM 3200 and 3220. He is extremely articulate and his intelligence shows; his calling is film analysis. You will learn how films carry political themes, how they reflect on the current affairs in the world during their release, and even what "social work" they perform. Get ready to discuss deeply!

FILM 3200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I took this class because I had to. I got a B. He offered extra credit that would have gotten an A, but it was a lot of work. Overall, it was okay. He is a smart man, but maybe even too smart. He cares a lot about Film and its analysis, more than anyone I've ever come across.

This man is too smart for his own good. He's a great professor,but extremely softspoken. If you plan to take him for film, bring a dictionary.

Film3200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Without any regard to his teaching methods or the structure of the class, I feel no pretense in calling him a first rate genius. He is one of the most intelligent and articulate people I have ever met. Some professors don't seem like they belong at the university level, he is not one of them.

Great professor!! Very clear on instructions and overall a pretty easy course. One essay per week and an assigned reading but it's really easy. I would definitely recommend him!

ENGL4220 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Professor Dudenhoeffer is not easy and anyone who says he is, is probably some chick who thinks he's hot. It is not easy to approach Dudenhoeffer in his office due to the fact that he likes to run his mouth. However, he does respond to emails. For someone who taught this class for the first time, he is clear. The textbook is heavily used in class.

ENGL2110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

On the first day of class he said we would experience some serious cognitive dissonance, and he wasn't kidding. It was an awesome class though, and the texts he used were really interesting. Oh, and he's super attractive.

Film3200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I had him for film history and the class was easy enough. You should be able to get an A if you read the material and go to class. However I have never had a professor that I have clashed with as bad as this one. He is pretentious and assumes students know everything that he does rendering his lectures completely incoherent. I do not suggest him.

Don't be distracted by this teacher's good looks and charm. He'll make you work for your grade. Go to class and do the assignments on time. If you have questions it's better to go to his office. Don't play on your phone or computer in class. I wish I could take something else with him.

ENG2110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Nice guy and knows his stuff. He's good at explaining concepts in an understandable way. If you miss class you're screwed since his lectures go over so much. Writing notes can be hard cause he goes through things fast and his handwriting is really hard to read on the board. Overall, it's easy to pass his class but it's not an easy A.

ENG2112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I would not take this professor unless you like to read about mythology and are prepared to teach yourself everything.Boring class and all he does is talk.If you can teach yourself and are prepared for a 25 question midterm and a final for EVERYTHING you have learned,take him. He is pretty cool but I would NOT recommend him for World Lit.

This prof is cool. He challenges you to think and respects your opinions. His class does have a leftist air to it, but he manages to get his point across. You are a grown up, you'll meet people with many different points of view in your life. He is super cute and hot too wich makes going to class so much more fun! meow!

Great professor! He encourages class discussion to show you're engaged in relating philosophies from the books we read to the films we watch. Short essays due weekly. He's respectful, kind, and sometimes a bit silly - so don't be afraid to ask questions! Also, expect interesting subject matter when it comes to films (adoption, abortion, sex, war).

FILIM3220 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great professor. Took him for 3220- focused on Eastern European cinema and Lacanian, Freudian, Kantian and Zizec philosophies. Those who say "everything was about sex" weren't paying attention. While this class was challenging, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Very thought provoking. Go to class..he points out things that you probably wouldn't get just from reading. His "spaciness" doesn't really interfere with what he's teaching and is often rather entertaining, actually. Great teacher. :)

Didn't know much about film history until I took this guy's class. Great professor, although he would benefit with powerpoint. Attendance is mandatory. Do all the weekly discussions and extra-credit and you should do well. Final exam is multiple choice.
