Professor Markham is awesome. He's really helpful, especially if you're an ENV major, since he's head of the department. There's usually a fair amount of reading that he posts on Blackboard, and a research paper. His exams are essay-based, and he's very serious about his class, but don't let that keep you from taking a class with him. He's great!

Dr. Markham is an excellent instructor and advisor. He is very concerned about student success and will support you completely if you make a real effort in his classes. He expects students to work hard- not be lazy, uninvolved class-skippers. Extremely knowledegable regarding subject material.

Dr. Markham is really passionate about his field of study, and he definitely conveys it through his lectures! Sometimes his lectures can be very boring though with no discussion. He doesn't have a very loud voice, and it can be hard to hear him. All in all though, I liked him, and am thinking about minoring in environmental studies!

He seems to be a really nice guy & I enjoyed his sense of humor although he was a little boring at times. You will need to read and study for the exams to do well, but it's nothing too difficult. As long as you really put in some time and effort into your book report and observation assignment, you should be fine too. Overall an enjoyable class.

Dr. Markham does not allow much group discussion mostly because he lectures the whole class time. His class was a challenge but he is very helpful if you have any questions.

Markham is an extremely rude teacher who speaks to his students as if they are 5th graders that dont know what college is. ALL lecture with 4 major tests that are all essay. If you study hard you can get a B or A-, but he refuses to give higher than that. He will always find something wrong with all that you do. VERY RUDE WHEN ASKED FOR HELP!!

Markham is definitely not for every student. His lectures are long and if you don't have a genuine interest in the topic you may fall asleep!Also you must take great notes as well cause he barely ever writes anything on the board. I must say though the man is brilliant. He really knows the subject and if you pay attention you will learn something.

i have him for an environmental class in the sociology department. everything in the lectures is clear. no surprises on the tests. and he is more than fair when it comes to grading. this class was the perfect course to take care of my last upper level and writing intensive requirements.

i like william t markham. he is a very smart man and is helpful if you have questions after class. lots of lecture though. 50 minutes of lecture every class. exams are basically all writing and he grades your research papers pretty harsh but he does help you on what you can do better. i recommend him if you are looking for a good teacher.

His class is all lecture. Very intelligent man and knowledgble on what he talks about, but it's very boring. He is a hard grader on both tests and quizzes and doesn't make himself very available outside of class.

This guy was the worst teacher. He thinks he the smartest man alive and he is soooo cool that he has traveled all over the world. He always keeps you till the end of class if not later and rambles on about stuff non related to the class. There were 2 research papers and graded them pretty easy. I never want to take this teacher again.

How arrogant. Almost every day, he metioned how great he was at his job, and what a great professor he was. I thought he sucked. He does not encourage class participation, and the guy thinks he wrote the English language.
