Professor Gerencser was a very engaging professor who encouraged class discussion. He was definitely a tough grader, but fair. He was always happy to answer emails or meet to discuss your papers. Even if you are not interested in political science, this is a great course to take since it engages you in a lot of critical thinking.

Upper lvl philosophy. Hard. Seemed like the people who really got into it were those more naturally inclined to the subject. First time I wanted to stab my skull with an icepick during class. Prof. loves his stuff so that makes learning easier. You earn your grade. Not hot (not ugly)- some people must be smoking here.

Class is boring at most times though he is a nice, charismatic guy. Difficult political theory material and I'm not quite sure if it attempts making it easier on anyone.

I found the class to be very monotonous and dry, but it had more to do with the material than with the prof. I thought sessions got repetitive at times and often went much longer than seemed necessary. The tests were more challenging than I anticipated, but I also scored better than I anticipated, so he seemed fair. Read your book/handouts!

Anyone that can make Plato, Aristotle and Cicero interesting has to be doing something right. VERY easy to talk to and always willing to lend a hand. (And yes, easy on the eyes as well). Grades are based on 2 papers and essay tests. Grading was a little on the hard side, but well worth it. Best class I've taken thus far.

The hotness, yes, made this class so much more bearable. Did an admirable job of making a dreadful class interesting. Tests were very easy, they're just short essays. He doesn't really give much homework, but you have to write 2 short papers. Grades easy.

I hear that he's not a good prof. for intro political science classes...he gets too bored with it. His political theory class was interesting though. He's laid back and fun to listen too if he's talking about something that he's interested in.
