HPS-456 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very smart man. I love him outside of class, but in class he gets carried away with his stories and gets off topic often. You need to make sure you listen in class and he notices when you are absent. We had to write papers summarizing every chapter that were about 7 pages long each chapter. Reading the 2000 page book was necessary & time consuming.

Healthcare Law Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great guy. I learned a lot from him. He is all over the place, but he LOVES his job. He was born to teach. He is unorganized and you never know where you stand in the class. He does curve your grades though. Tests are take home essays which are very long. The book is HUGE and expensive. I do believe this class will help me in my career.

HPS 410 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is horrible at teaching. All over the place, nothing about the topic you need to learn for your major. He can't answer a question and is terrible with medical term! Take a different class if you can!

HPS-410 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This man is a great teacher. At times he is completely scattered but normally pulls it all together in 1 giant metaphor (which he loves). There are 4 papers/projects and no exams. Do not buy the book, you are not tested on it and will not need it.

Let me just say, this guy does not belong at UofM-Dearborn. He is way too intelligent to be there, should be at Ann Arbor or better. He is clearly there because he loves what he does. Extremely difficult classes, I will admit, but this is not without purpose. Be prepared to devote at least 12 hours to big paper. Also large readings. Great class!

HPS456 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Hard work, but awesome Prof. Understanding, pushed due dates back whenever we needed it. Always there to help you when you needed it. Work load was a lot & work was tough, but it's a tough subject. Curved a lot (a 65% was a B). If you do the work & put some thought into it, you'll be fine. (Wouldn't recommend if you're taking another tough class).

This is by far the worst class I've taken. He is all over the place. There is no structure or organization in this class. He rants about nothing most of the class. His work load is ridiculous. 10-12 pg paper, another 6 page paper and a midterm that is take home. I would NEVER take his class again! You couldn't pay me to! Ugh

SOC410 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Attendance is important. He stresses importance of the reading, but I didn't do any of it and got a B. Can be confusing, and he goes off on tangents, but a nice guy. Helps with career advice, enjoys telling stories (up to you to find the metaphor at times), not the greatest at returning assignments, but if you should up and try you should be okay.

SOC423 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Many people will say that his lecture style is confusing and broad, but given the course I had with him, I think that his lecture style, while long will always leave you with something to think about. The challenge is: are you willing to just open up and listen? I will say this he is brilliant and you will feel better after taking a course with him

By far one of the best professors at the school. You will learn a lot about EVERYTHING imaginable in his classes, and he has great advice when it comes to career planning. Overall just a really nice guy.

Not structured. All assignments require a re-do. This course is required so if your stuck with Radine buckle up and enjoy the ride. He's very articulate & educated but let's say he as an eccentric way of teaching!

very all over the place in his lectures. Extremely confusing. Very smart, intelligent guy but very unclear. If you ask one question about an assignment, he'll only leave you with 4 more questions...

S553 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

One of the Best at UofM!!! Very knowledgeable about what he teaches and about life in general.Often goes off on tangents, but usually tries to make those tangents relevant to the class.Hard for him to stay on topic and stick to the syllabus, but that's what makes his class so interesting.Wonderful professor and always ready to help! Loved him!!

I am currently in the class and I can honestly say Professor Radine is an AWESOME professor. He is extremely educated and really cares about his students. He also offers advice on graduate school, employment and anything you need to know for the real world. He is the best proffessor period!
