BEST TEACHER EVER!!!! Class was fun, he is super nice and so so so helpful! By far my favorite teacher ever, he even let me skip class one time when I had 3 exams the next day. Will take ever class possible with this guy.

Nairn is very nice and kind. He likes to throw in jokes to make the class more interesting. A long class goes pretty fast because there is many tasks to do. There is a lot of reading but you could get by without doing it. Two papers and two tests which allow notes. I would recommend, easy and not too boring!

Niarn is a good prof. Lots of reading and discussion so it's sorta important to do the readings. However, I don't think I've done one since the first class. Consequently, if I get called on I have to say I don't know the answer to the question, which kinda sucks, but I've still managed to get an A on the paper and an A- on the first test.

He is an amazing professor and really wants to get you interested in the class. Your grade is mostly tests and papers but they are all take home or open note. He's very helpful and not hard.

Nairn is the best THEO teacher to take. He is engaging, and the class is interesting. He has different views on theology which are interesting. Tests are open note open book. If you don't get an A then you're not on the right planet. He wants you to actually learn the material and doesn't care as much about the grade.

GREAT PROFESSOR!! I was really intimidated to take my first Theology class especially since it wasn't one of my interests, but this class was amazing! He really gets to know his students and you can use your notes on tests.

He is a great prof. His discussions are always interesting and he has a pretty good sese of humor. Quite a bit of reading but it is a Theo class.

FANTASTIC TEACHER! Seems a little threatening at first, but mostly because he is very punctual. He loves to have fun and enjoy classtime, and has a great sense of humor! Easy grader, and supports/recognizes your beliefs no matter what they are, and is open to any belief in a religion class, NOT common among certain teachers. DEFINITELY TAKE HIM!!

TAKE HIM! Had him for J-Term. A lot of reading (you could get by without doing it if you wanted), but the work load is manageable. His lectures are interesting, and papers are designed so that you'll be able to write using your own opinion. Final exam was not too bad... he worries more about understanding concepts rather than memorizing.

This guy is an amazing person. My favorite professor, teacher, instructor, etc.. At any level of education. Was extremely understanding when I was forced to miss a few classes. Everything he goes over in lecture is directly related to exams (unlike many profs at UST). Will take him again for THEO 3XX and any other classes if possible.

Nairn is one of the best profs I have ever had, hands down. Funny, knowledgable, cares about the students, and is passionate about religion. Isn't Catholic but still emphasizes the Catholic structure of St. Thomas. Definitely recommend taking Nairn

Best professor I've ever had at UST. He's funny, interesting, and it's an easy class. Tests are open notes, easy A. He drinks during class and its hilarious. Although he is a huge liberal and its obnoxious, he has a good heart and cares about his students and the topic.

Nairn is the best teacher I have had at UST. He is not Catholic and makes theology somewhat interesting to people who arent even religious. Open notes for just about everything. I dont think anyone gets below a b in the class. TAKE HIM!!!!!!!!

Nairn is great. Like most of the professors at any institution, unfortunately he is a big liberal. However, he is very funny, plays movies, and lets you use notes on the tests. The lame group work gets repetitive, but I strongly recommend taking him for 101, and if he lets you, hitting the bars with him as well.

Very nice man, very easy class. Lets you use notes on tests. Lecture consists of answering group questions on the readings and powerpoint slides. Highly recommend this professor. EASY A class. If you have to take theo 101, take this professor!
