I love this man. He's so passionate, friendly, helpful, organized - all of the things that you look for in a professor. He can be tough, but in the best way possible. Asks critical questions and challenges his students to really immerse themselves in the material. SO nice on top of being such a great professor. Really makes an effort! :)

The nicest professor I've ever met! He is so kind and extremely helpful at office hours. His lectures are well organized and he understands the stuff well. The material and tests are not easy, but if you really work on it, you shall never fail it. Although my major is far from art history, I'm willing to take his class again if possible!

I found that Professor Sinha does not know what he's talking about in reference to the history of a civilization. I didn't notice until we got to Korea, but once I did, that was all that kept me awake in class. His dates are often off by centuries, if not entire time periods.

He's well-meaning and very knowledgeable in his field of study, but not a great lecturer. The readings were fairly interesting, topics he brought to class were fairly interesting, his whole teaching style is fair, not bad, but not that great. He's also repetitive and is unclear about what he expects during discussions. Basically, he is boring.

Though you can tell he knows a lot about his field, I had a terrible time in his Arts of Asia class. I swear he hated me for no reason and he definitely played favorites. He took off points from one of my essays because I described a brushstroke as being "graceful". Apparently that is a travesty. I hated his lectures.

nice professor, knowledgeable and understanding (but only if you know how to remain on his good side), really likes participation and regular attendance.. lectures tend to get boring and instructions for assignments and tests are indeed rather unclear, very strict when marking papers, in all class proves to be rather demanding, specially the exams

He knows his stuff, a nice person, but VERY VERY unclear. His writing assignments are confusing, and you can't ever get perfect scores with him. What I also found shady was that he did not give out grade percentages on the syllabus..so I dunno if my A-s on my tests weighed more than my Bs on my writing assignments

I thought that arts of asia was an awesome class. His lectures were so organized and if you stayed awake and took notes you couldn't fail his tests. He is so smart and helpful if you can make it to his office while his there. It was a great class and fun but I wouldn't take it twice.

Well-meaning, wants his students to do well, knows his stuff. He wants class participation, but sometimes isn't forceful enough in engaging the class. Arts of India was really easy, just master the format for all response papers, and you're fine. would have been better if i'd participated more, but he really harps on thinking critically.

worst professor/human being I have ever met. He is an aweful teacher and unfair grader. He doesn't understand how to write and punishes the student that do know how to write.
