"Would take again" "Hilarious" "Gives good feedback"

I wish he taught more classes at FSU. He's easily the best professor I've had so far, he somehow made two and a half hour lectures interesting and enjoyable. Take AMH3047 if you can, you have to work hard and study to get a good grade but it's entirely worth it.

He made me love history when I used to hate it passionately. Fairly easy class if you take good notes and show up. Gives lots of attendance quizzes (piece of cake) and makes the class enjoyable. By far my favorite history professor

AMH2020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A

Very funny teacher. He doesn't make you come to class but it is necessary. He gives random attendance quizes, they're always easy. You have to go to class to get his notes , won't email power points. And alot of the notes werent in the book. I had to record him to get everything. But definitely a great teacher. 3 assignments.

Prof. Mikkelsen is definitely a great teacher. He relates very well to the students and keeps the lectures interesting. Attendance is not mandatory, but without attending, you will do poorly in the class. Not a very difficult course. Take him!

This dude is wonderful. He's nice, funny, and entertaining. The class isn't all that hard. Lots of notes, a few extensive tests, but if you've been there and paying attention it's pretty simple. He keeps it interesting, which helps. Definitely one of my favorite teachers.

AMH3470 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Interesting class, great lectures. There are 2 exams and an optional essay. Don't waltz in like it's going to be an easy A. You really have to attend lectures, take notes & pay attention. His exams really make you think and you need to have thorough notes in order to pass b/c there is no textbook for this class to fall back on if you miss class.

AMH4247 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

the single greatest teacher i've ever had. he is hilarious, crystal clear, and stresses concepts not meaningless information. i took a 3 hour class with him and it flew by simply because this is a person you want to have a conversation with. THE MAN. Personally I think he is better than Dr. Jones, who is the considered the best at FSU.

He is the****...I wish I could get into any of his other classes this semester if he is even still around. He is willing to help....but at the same time make you strive to figure it out yourself. The man

The second test and final were really hard so make sure you study. He's puts on a good lecture though. You learn a lot, but he also preaches a little. He wasn't bad but I wouldn't take him again

I have had his class twice before. He is one of the most dynamic history professors at FSU. If you can,I HIGHLY reccommend taking anything he offers.

Awesome guy, always willing to help or just talk after class. Lectures were really interesting, i always enjoyed going. it really helps if you go to class, he always gives out hints for the tests that the "red seats" miss. he's a really relatable, fun teacher :)

AMH4273 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Best history professor I've had at FSU. He explains what happens in stories with great detail rather than regurgitating facts and dates that will drive you crazy. There's just a paper and 2 exams so make sure you go to class. You won't regret attending though because his lectures are very interesting and he has a great sense of humor. Take him.

His tests are kind of ridiculous, but he is a great guy! Loved his lectures, loved just being around him. A lot of the questions on the tests, I'm not sure where he got from even though I studied A LOT. Essays are real easy considering he gives you all the prompts in the beginning of the semester. Not an easy A, but very enjoyable

This class is extremely interesting, thanks to Mikkelsen's teaching style. He keeps you engaged in the subject matter. You will definitely have to work for your grade in this class, just make sure you go to the lectures and you can pull off at least a B pretty easily. Take him!~
