This guy is a GREAT philosophy teacher. Close attention and you will be fine. Slack, and it will probably hurt.

Maybe a litle hard, but he is definitely worth it. Knows his aesthetics! VERY creative thinker and almost always has a smile on his face. Nice guy and very funny.

Legit. Love his lectures and respect that he does not give into grade inflation for his popularity, high ratings, etc. But you do have to work because he doesn't cave and his class is not for slackers.

Great professor, great personality, great vibe. Reminds me a lot of Richard Feynman! Class is not hard if you always focus. Definitely recommend.

The professor was awesome I enjoyed his class. Trig lived up to his rep as a genius with a 170 I.Q. This man is a phenomenal teacher. He is gorgeous too like I expected since he is rated the hottest prof at UCF. Ok, beauty and brains for days! BUT maybe he could make the class easier? I studied SO hard for a B! For an intro class! :'(

I strongly recommend him. Trig is smart, hilarious and VERY entertaining. He is a little difficult but he is also good at explaining what you need to know for the test. Attendance is a must to do well.

Seriously Trig should be in *Hollywood*. He is talented. Reminds you a lot of Depp or Downey Jr. Witty. Out there. A little eccentric. Great sense of humor. Ok the class is a little hard but the teacher is classic so who cares.

I like his lectures a lot. He can be very playful and hilarous in the lectures! Like when he does parodies about teaching and plato or impersonations. He's a little out there for sure. Grades are fair, but tests are a little hard. I like the class because you learn a lot. :)

Professor Johnson taught me world religions and philosophy. Comparative ethics, epistemologies, soteriology, hermeneutics, theology and a lot on religious experience. He is one of my favorite teachers. You learn a lot in his class. He gives the best lectures.

He makes the lectures interesting, but attendance is MANDATORY and if your note-taking skills are anything but superior, the tests can be pretty hard.

Trig is a wonderful professor. Really entertaining professor, loves philosophy, and does everything in his power to make you love it too. He doesn't post anything online, so taking good notes are extremely important, as he teaches away from the book as well. His tests are challenging but if you take good notes you will be fine. Take this professor

HUM 2210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I had no idea what to expect day one, but I am quite happy with the outcome. In my opinion, he gives engaging lectures and is extremely knowledgable in the humanities, especially early Philosophy and Aesthetics. Attendance wasn't required but I found that I Enjoyed going to class, and all of his test material is in his lectures. Great teacher!

Totally great class. He is deep and very stimulating usually, but still gives you pretty easy tests. So you get what you want! Makes class intersting and he is intriguing. Those are bonuses. And bonus points for grade. And rated the hottest professor at UCF! ;) TAke him!

HUM 2210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He's an interesting guy, but his class stinks. He lectures on such deep and profound topics but tests you on surface level irrelevant nonsense. Tests are written very tricky and the majority isn't based on lectures or notes. He's like House meets Johnny Depp & class is interesting but it starts to suck when it doesn't help you on the test.

Oxford University grad. Teaches 3 subjects. Genius. Very popular. Happily, he emphasizes phil basics, does speak clearly, and does expect thinking precision......as you'd expect in intro phil. You'll dislike it though, if your brain struggles with the merely basic and thinks the course very difficult. It's not hard. Helpful also with bonus points!

He's an adjunct for a reason, serving little to no use for a student who is philosophically equipped with basics or more. Those of you that are enamored by him would do well to analyze him further. You may find him less impressive if you recognize his petty over-complications. A large portion of his lecturing is is wasted on his self-glorification.
