Professor Maher is definitely a teacher I would recommend for sociology. He knows what he is talking about, and explains it clearly. He doesn't believe in tests; You do presentations and two essays at the end, which he gives you a study guide the first day you walk in for them. He lets you miss five days w/o penalty. Would definitely recommend.

Dr. Maher is a very fair teacher and very understanding. He does take attendance everyday so it's important to be there. Also he is all about presentations too. His finals are essay questions which you will get the answers to in his lessons.

I had Dr. Maher for online sociology. He was a very fair grader on all the quizzes, tests and group projects. He is very into group projects but they are manageable even online, promise. He's kind of snappy over email but that was the only downfall.

He really knows what he's talking about so he doesn't settle for BS'ing your way through the class. He'll assign homework, but not pick it up, but have a pop quiz that's open note, so if you didn't do your homework, you're screwed. He's into group presentations & it sucks if your classmates don't care about it. He's an amusing, alright teacher.

I have had this professor for Cultural Anthropology and North American Indians. Both classes were very interesting. Lots of group projects.

Professor Maher is a very fair instructor....at least for the online course I took. He rarely answers email, and has very little emotion (it seems) but he is good overall. All the exams were essay style (5 within 75 mins.!), but he grades on content and understanding mainly. Very nice man overall. I recommend.

Mr. Maher was a very fair teacher. He made clear what was expected of students. Take notes, get the book and make sure to follow his reading schedule. Group projects challenging because it's a group. He is happy to give clarification on those when needed. Testing was in essay format for midterm and final, do some reading! Good sense of humor.

I had him for Anthropology. He is big on group work, and powerpoint presientations. Which are easy, but group work is always a pain. He engaged us in tons of critical thinking, and really cares about his material. Which is refreshing for this university. Because he offered so much bonus he made it virtually impossible to fail. Loved this class!

Great professor! He will take the time to ask you questions on your projects and at the side, he enjoys talking to you as a student about the homework and projects. Very kind and genuine teacher, he knows what he's talking about and he's a real laid back hippy guy. Do not play with your cellphones, he will make a fool out of you!

I loved my N American Indians class. I learned a lot and hav a new respect for the natives of this land. He is constantly changing his teaching methods and seems more interested in making the class fun & easier to learn than just throwing a ton of information at you. It was a WEB class, so just read the chapters and take quizzes you will be fine.

Great teacher, would recommend to anyone. Be aware there are a lot of group presentations. However, he does notice who does their work and who doesn't.

Best lecturer ever. Maher is one of the rare kind of geniuses that knows how to explain things well. He prepares you for upper division courses well via the class reports. You can learn as little or as much as you like through his grading system. Beware of the reading notes as they will make or break your grade! Read all of books he suggests!

Great lectures & makes you put some effort into the grade. He will make you really question your own culture & why the world is the way it is. Take him if you want to learn about culture, but aviod if you want a Mickey Mouse course.

This class was a challenge. It needs to be anthropology/speech class. It's a good class and is interesting. Lots of oral reports which can be made fun. I learned a lot.
