JTD is the boss of Global Politics. If you want to major in politics and focus on global, you should take all his classes. Wrote his own Global textbook and it's so good you can use it as a source for the papers you write in his class. Princeton graduate, genius analyst and writer, great sense of humor. High standards but worth the effort.

Go to class, go see him in his office hours, write 3 good papers and you will get a solid grade. Very straight forward POL 105 class. You will get out of it what you put it. Reading isn't exactly required, because there are no tests or exams. He is a really good guy, who does care about his students.

Prof. Dickovick is amazing. I've never met a professor who is so interested in his students and cares so much about how they are doing. Do yourself a favor and take a class with him before you graduate.

Great professor that assigns great readings and leads class conversations that really probe the issues. Tends to have all the work due in the last week, so that will be very stressful and you will leave campus without any clue what grade you are earning. Otherwise a great prof.

Professor Dickovick is amazing. You shouldn't graduate from W&L without taking a class from him-- it's an amazing experience. They way he runs his classes is incredibly engaging. Not an easy grader, but you know you deserve it if you do well.

Great guy - we always had a good time in class. Lots of discussion, lots of reading but it's really worth it. Some of the readings are dry but others are really great. If you can find a way to game the system to get Dickovick, do it.

Stands out as the best politics professor I've ever had. He cares about his students and goes out of his way to make sure everyone understands what's going on, but still expects a lot of work. Relatively easy B - difficult A. A great person.

Professor Dickovick is great! He was my 1st politics professor here and I've loved him- not an easy grader, but not awfully hard either. Very nice, and a good class environment.

He is an amazing professor. Assigns quite a bit of reading and is a tough grader- so dont take his class if u want an easy A. However u learn a LOT. i was never bored once during class, and he's really funny too. I would highly recommend his class to anyone who is willing to put in some work!

I am a Pro. Dickovick fan! Great class dicussions. Really encourages students to examine look beyond their immediate reactions to see all sides of an arguement. Reading can be a little intense sometimes, but the conversion, writing and study skills I learned were well worth it. Take this class!

very helpful during office hours and is a great facilitator of class discussion. I felt the class was very productive. Sometimes the reading can get a little heavy but, if you are interested in the topic you will not mind it at all. FYI: He went to Princeton.

I was told that you cannot learn anything about politics in a politics class. After taking this class....I agree. TOO MUCH READING

Dickovick rocks my world! I love how he pushes/encourages students to explore all (or many) sides of a political debate/issue before they form their opinion.
