SOCI 1120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

he is the most useless teacher i've ever met. when he actually bothered to show up to class (which was rare), his lectures were so unclear and difficult to follow, it was absolutely pointless. i was so lost the entire semester. DO NOT TAKE HIS CLASS!!!

SOCI1120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

His teaching method has left me to learn NOTHING. His notes are words on a paper that lead you to just read the textbook to understand what he is talking about and he doesn't give proper notice of assignments. He speaks in a mumble and covers his mouth while speaking. One of the worst teachers I have ever had.

SOCI1120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Almost never responds to e-mails form students. Not friendly teacher at all. Final exam questions were very hard to understand. Didn't give enough time for written mid-term at all.

Seary is a very intelligent man. Should he be teaching...no. His lectures are unclear and they do not follow any structure. I have never been in a class and felt like I have learnt nothing. Not to mention his expectations for tests are ridiculous.

Soci1120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He know's his stuff however he comes off angry all the time and I didnt really like that, I want the professor to be friendly and seem like he likes us (pretend at least) serious, yes sarcastic at times. My class made a facebook group and tested each other before midterms ect. and it helped a ton!! I defiantly recommend it. Good Luck

Seary is a beast. The man wrote a 348 page Ph.D paper - he knows his stuff. Challenging, helpful, and forgiving, he's someone that wants you to learn. Do the readings (yes, all of them), participate, and you wont just get a good grade, but you'll learn something too. He's too hard if you're lazy like I am. Much respect.

He is a decent teacher. Seems sarcastic and does not like it when any sociology methods are challenged. Seems a little snobby. Sometimes I disagree with some of the things he says but that is life I suppose. He can be sarcastic and unprofessional but if you accept what he is saying as the end all be all then you should do fine in his course.

With his depth of knowledge, life experience, and enthusiasm for sociological theory, Seary has inspired me to dig deeper - I only hope more professors are like him. Folks who rate negatively are simply clueless and looking for a free ride. If you want a genuine education show up, do the work, and you will benefit. Big time. Highly Recommended!!

Dr. Seary knows what he's talking about. Some might complain that he speaks in a monotone voice, but his speciality is not in a dramatic performance, but rather the content. He relates the topics to heart wrenching stories from his own life, and puts something personal into every lecture. The exams are tough but fair, and he hints what's on them.

Socio1120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Jesse Seary's teaching methods are different , he teaches from his own knowledge rather than the book , his 2 tests, may be challenging but if you put in the effort it should be fine , NEVER miss a class, notes are helpful for the exams , overall not a bad professor.
