POL 260 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

This is one of the classes I have enjoyed the most. Professor Fomerand uses his expertise to make sure students understand the basics of International Relations. To me,he was clear, helpful, and easy to understand. Not a class for lazy people,reading and participation is really important.I recommend for someone interested in International Relations

POL260 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B

This professor is VERY hard to understand. He won't prepare you for the midterm and don't depend on your book, he will not prepare a review for The final other than tell you that it will be cumulative and consist of EVERYTHING he went over during the semester.

POL450 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is hard to understand at 1st, once u get used to him u will be fine. He's laid back and will help you. H's super SMART! Work load isn't big, just readings mostly and handing things in throughout the semester. This is for POL 409 and 450. Just ask for help and he will help you with info or where to get it, or help with paper topics.

Really great professor. Always attempts to help students. The students can have more flexibility in this course. Just make sure that you read the assigned chapters from the class textbook. Overall,experienced, intellectual and cooperative mentor.

POL320 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 VERY difficult to understand so you NEED to pay attention! Doesn't take attendance, he just remembers faces.he gives a midterm, final and a 10 page paper on any topic you choose and is willing to help you with it if needed.he gives a review for midterm and chooses some things from midterm so study it all. No HOMEWORK, just read chapters

POL101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

His teaching method is weird to say the least. Its all lecture so it drags and can be boring. His exams are a mixture of whats in the text and what he talks about. Don't be surprise though that on the exam you answer a question correctly according to the book & he marks you wrong because he was looking for HIS answer he spoke about.
