Easy and interesting. Random facts about sex and our culture kept me awake through some of the drier material

very boring. Any questions asked his response was "its in the syllabus" and I'm not a lazy student...I get all A's and then I take his class and get the first C on my transcript. Very hard class with him teaching.

ANT221 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Took this as a teleweb course, so my contact with him was limited. However, he responded to emails fairly quickly and was pretty helpful. There are 4 multiple choice tests which are kind of long and hard, so if you're not a good test taker, he's probably not the best person to take. Had to drop the class, but would still recommend.

many people say that hes boring. well that might be true for some but imo he is not a boring teacher. if you listen to his class you will be fascinated. just take time to put a little effort and you're good. mr. hansen is sure a very good teacher. he is kind of strict but imo it is the best way to control naughty students. i like him he is cool.

Hansen was awesome. I really enjoyed the class. It got somewhat boring towards the end, but each class always had it's highlights. I would reccomend this course be taken over the summer. It's quicker, more condensed, and I think it was more interesting that way. I didn't buy the book and got an A. Rent them from the library and you'll be fine.

ANT122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

His lectures are slightly boring, but cultural anthro is a gen. ed. for most colleges, so if you take it, take it with Jerry. Tests are completely based off of readings and lectures. I had a B at the end of the semester, but he bumped it to an A because I showed concern, and had good attendance. He is very understanding. Overall good teacher.

Awesome online class. Gave me a new appreciation for indigenous cultures. I wish I had taken the on campus course because it would have been interesting to hear other students' takes on how capitalist societies are adversely affecting traditional cultures. My favorite culture is the Trobriand Islanders and their yam currency.

He was boring most of the time. But he is a good teacher. He is willing to help. The one thing I did not like was the book he made us read, which is written by his brother.

As everyone has said, he isn't the most exciting teacher out there, however, he does provide great notes. His notes are always written on the board and you just copy them down. He expects you to read the textbooks, do it (or at least skim them! They are on the exams. I'm pulling a B without too much of an effort. Just show up.
