COM4332 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B

The class wasn't too bad. The professor did come across as pompous, but he treated everyone fairly. He did not baby anyone. There are pop-quizzes and the exams are essays. If you don't like showing up to class and having to read what is assigned, then the class is not for you.

loves to hear himself talk, stands in front of class and repeats everything that is on the powerpoint. takes random quizzes throughout the semester and likes to do it at the end of class so that people who leave early will not get credit. i would recommend the book, but you may not need it. avoid this class if you don't like sarcastic teachers.

MMC4640 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B

Easily one of the worst professors I've taken. He loves to hear his opinion repeated back to him. Listen in class and get to know what he thinks and then write your paper on that. He gave me an incomplete on a big paper, I met with him, he doesn't know what is wrong with it, but still hasn't given me a grade. I'm excited for this class to be over.

Great professor. People who aren't able to adapt to a changing teaching enviorment might not enjoy the class. Take it for what it is and youll have a great time.

MMC 1540 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Plain and simple, do not take him. All he does is stand in front of the classroom and read off the powerpoint while you take notes. He loves to hear himself talk and is very full of himself. I have never received a "C" in any college class before his due to his poor guidelines and teaching abilities. Thumbs down for James Tracy.

COM4930 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Professor Tracy gets a lot of undeserved hate. His class on culture and conspiracy was very insightful, and certainly thought provoking. Writing the essays are a breeze if you put in minimal-moderate effort, and the test questions are given in advance. Being introduced to Jim Marrs's book and movies such as Thrive alone make the class worth taking.

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

This proffesor is as worthless as his teaching.... Nothing intresting was taught, in fact, he taught against anything useful in the field of communications...avoid him at all costs....you'll end up trying to pass his awkardly strict teaching policies rather than passing relavent career material... and he loves to hear himself talk

Professor Tracy's class was a pleasure to take. Yes - you have to read about 30 pgs and write a 1.5-2 pg paper weekly and you are only allowed 1 unexcused absence. That said, it wasn't as bad as people make it seem. If you do the work and pay attention, the tests won't be that bad. HE GIVES YOU THE Qs 3 DAYS IN ADVANCE. I learned A LOT. Refreshing

This class is much better than his mass comm theory class. He demands a lot out of his students, but he is fair. He is a big intellectual and likes to have long discussions during class. He requires short papers for each class, but is pretty liberal on the grading.

This professor only likes to do one thing, and that is hear himself talk. He has an extremely condescending personality and thinks he is such an intellectual it comes off as been arrogant and annoying. His class is more like a graduate level class. Be prepared to write papers every week and do lots of readings. Exams are HUGE essays w/ no notes.SUX
