HIST3310 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I had to take this course because I needed this last credit to graduate. What I discovered was excessively disappointing. No students at Trent have ever even heard his name before. Though he likes to think he is quite popular since he has published books no one has read. I now understand why.

HIST3951 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Robert Wright is one of the best professors at Trent @ Durham. He is by far the smartest man I have ever met. He is a fair marker but is very tough. His essays are tough to do because of the size (3,000/4,000/5,000 words) but doable if you work ahead of the final deadline. Class is awesome-based on conversations. The man is a hottie which helps ;)

Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is a tough prof but he pushes you to your full capacity. He is probably the smartest man I have ever met and I think that is what intimidates students. The no official deadlines messes up a lot of students but if you stick to them you'll be fine. Not necessarily a total history class but I think that's what draws students in. Overall he's an awe

hist400 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

don't take the class if you want history. take it if you want politics. class never stays on topic making reading a waste of time. he can't control the wingnuts either so good students don't care anymore.no historical readings all political ones. worst part-every course he teaches he puts one of his books as an assigned reading.gimme a break,

Prof Wright is the best and most influential educator I've ever had the privledge of encountering.He expects hard work and dedication from his students and in return grooms and molds them into scholars.This is my second Wright course and I plan on taking as many as I can. Highly recomended. His classes will inspire you and change you perspective.

HIST 254 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Fair, approachable and easy going. Only people who hated his class were the ones that had no clue what was going on and made no effort to. Students who just rambled on without supporting themselves with facts didn't do well in his class. Go figure. Great Prof.

Tough but fair. He demands vigilance and hard work from his students, and in return he shares his valuable wealth of knowledge on Canadian history

... Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Great prof. but he seems to attract ass-kissers who he cannot control in discussions... attracts a lot of students who like to hear their own voices - severely detracting from the quality of discussion

one of the better university profs you will ever encounter in your acadmeic life. He will challenge you and in turn you will become a better student and a better thinker! I've long since graduated from Trent so this is an honest opinion and not sucking up/ brown nosing
