HIST308 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A-
"Gives good feedback" "Get ready to read" "Amazing lectures"

Final paper matters most, if you just catch up other factors such as participation and group presentation as others do. However he does not grade it very strictly, and is always kind enough to give you a nice feedback. There are much load of reading - a book per 1-2 week (s) but the assigned books are interesting. You'll regret not taking Empires.

Very good prof, History of Modern Ireland. Much lecture, but he kept it interesting. Some reading, but not a lot. Two 5 page papers, tests are sorta hard. Good prof to take if you are interested in Irish History

Dean Hill's is the proseminar to take. I was placed in (it wasn't even one of my choices) and I ended up loving it nonetheless. Paper topics are interesting, he is amazingly helpful, funny, fair, etc. Also an awesome contact person to have in the future

My favorite class. Ever. Dean Hill is such a great professor - he's very laid back, and tends to teach things as discussions rather than lectures. The books are good reads. He shows movies and has dinners with the class too, all relating back to the Irish conflict. Take Dean Hill's class!

This was definitely my favorite class this semester. Dean Hill feeds us, shows us movies, extends deadlines whenever we ask, and is very amusing. He's a bit of a grammar stickler, but definitely take anything he teaches.

Knows A LOT and is always there to answer questions whenever you need him. Kind of a tough grader, but always there if you need help. Good sense of humor and the kind of professor you can talk to.
