HIST 103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

The class is mostly based on reading assignments that are actually really interesting. It is a good gen ed to take that is only easy if you actually do the work. The professor is nice and definitely isn't a boring lecturer. He also does look like a George Clooney stunt double.

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

I'm not a fan of History, I solely took this class b/c I'm a Psych major & felt History of Madness & Mental Health would be the perfect history class. At 1st it was rough but Prof Eghigian made it easy to learn. He's a genius and he makes it easy to retain info due to examples & humor. Plus he looks like a George Clooney stunt double haha #swag

Professor GE is a very intelligent professor who keeps students interested with class discussions and video's shown in class. My advice is to be sure you have read all of the material before exams and take notes during discussions. If you do this, you shouldn't have a problem obtaining at least a B.

HIST103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

His slides were never posted on angel, so it is hard to write down everything he said. Tests are essay test and open notebook. If you are a bad writer don't take this class, it was interesting but there was also A LOT of reading which is what the essay tests were on. Keep up with the readings. Not an easy Gen Ed.

HIST103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

not an easy gen ed. A lot of reading-and there is no text book so you have to print out the readings every night from angel. The tests are open book essays but take lots of notes because its hard to write an essay without them. Also on the test is true/false so you have to go to class to get his lecture notes for that. worked hard got a B+

Great class. Tests are open book essays, but are not easy. You still need to study for them. Grade is from 3 tests plus discussion class attendance. Easy if you take good notes and prepare well for the exams.

HIST123 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Greg is a great guy, good lecturer, and will help you out however he can. (One kid showed up to our final an hour late and greg let him finish the rest at home.) Just read the texts and participate in class and youll be all set for the tests (all open book) Not an easy A but a solid Gen ed.

HIST408 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

His exams were more brutal than the Battle of Normandy. I had a better chance of surviving the holocaust than this class. I have a 3.5 GPA and this class was my only C in my entire life. He is a crazy liberal who hates conservatives. I'm rather apathetic but his biased liberal agenda offended me greatly. Always late for class, and always ran late.

HIST143 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

The guy was an excellent lecturer and his class was really interesting. The fact is you have to read the material. People thought they could slide by without doing anything and it bit them in the butt come test time. However if you are interested in the subject I highly reccomend it. Ended up with an A-.

A very engaging lecturer who might do well if he switched to being a talk show host. His exams, open-book though they are, are graded extremely hard. You will be lucky to limp out with a B.

This is the only class I really look forward to going to, however it is not easy so don't expect an easy A. He has a great sense of humor and is a really great speaker.

Great Professor! Very enthusiastic about the subject, interesting lectures, and great sense of humor. The open book exams are moderatly challenging, he expects you to know the material, but if you go to lecture you'll learn what you need to know. Definatly take his class.

Excellent Professor. He gave some of the best lectures I have heard in my college career. He is extremly knowlgeable about all things NAZI. His lectures are engaging and excting. I would strongly recomend you do all the readings and go to discussion sections. Overall great class!

Great professor! Very interesting lectures...makes you imagine what it was like to be in Germany during the Nazi years. Open book tests aren't too bad, just be able to write good essays (which means u gotta read the material). TA sessions on Fridays are pointless but the class overall is great.
