I'm a political science major. His class is hard even for a political science major. That said you'll learn more in his class than any other class at the university. This guy knows his stuff. You'll need to work VERY hard to get a good grade. Very classy Professor. I think we're lucky to have him. Take his class.

Very very awesome professor, very knowledgeable about politics. He has a sarcastic sense of humor which I loved, over all he is a very nice guy even if he doesn't see it that way. Read the book, he gives out reading tests and also reading will be on the exams. Don't just take notes, write down what he says in class as well and you will do fine.

A great guy, funny and knows what he's talking about to the max. I failed the class, but I don't hold it against him, it was my own fault. And despite that, I still learned an immense amount. Be prepared to take notes and study HARD. The tests are tough if you don't do the readings or take good notes. Very interesting class though.

Horrible teacher. He'd be better off becoming an orator. He requires a lot of attentive reading and it covers most of his tests to the utmost detail. Not knowing even a single sentence is risk of failing a test. He is way too strict.

Took him for International Relations and Current issues in global politics. Very intelligent, well spoken, thorough. Tests are challenging, classroom discussion invigorating. You do not want to disappoint him and I believe he cares about his students.

Dr. Gendlin is a very good professor. While he may require a good deal of reading, it really helps you in understanding the material. I've taken him for numerous classes and would take him every semester if I could.

I love listening to his lectures because he is funny and a great speaker, but the class is impossible. I spent six hours in one day studying for just one of his tests. My only advice if you do take him: take notes on the book and memorize them for the book quizzes...you think they'd be easy but he picks obscure things from the captions to test on.

He is a really funny guy, however, do not take him lightly. he means business. If you dont read all the material, you will fail. LOTS of notes, and not too clear on what you have to know. One of the hardest professors I have had. I had his 2.5 hour course, it was challenging to stay alert. Take at your own risk. His other courses were better.

Tests are incredibly hard for the most part. And they are the ONLY grades you will recieve, if you have troubles learning from reading, avoid at all cost

One of the most intelligent professors on campus. Very funny and he will always make a joke. Tests are super hard. Very important to stay up to date with the readings and take very good notes to pass the class.

Gendelin himself is a fantastic professor and person. He is very knowledgeable on all the subjects he teaches. However he is a bit of a challenge. You must read and take good notes to pass his class.

His class is really fun but if you can't focus on the reading you're screwed.

He is a good teacher, but I do not learn well from his teaching methods, little from class is tested on and most comes from reading. If you have troubles learning by reading avoid at all costs.

He is an ok teacher. Sometimes his funny comment dont come off as funny rather like an insult.

Dr. Gendlin is intelligent, engaging, funny, and motivating. Teaching from a fact-based, intellectual point of view, he convinces the democrats, republicans, and independents that he shares their views--largely because he is so well liked. It's not easy to ace his class, but it's easy to want to try. I wish EUP had a hundred more of him.

This guy is HILARIOUS, not to mention he's like an encyclopedia of knowledge. You have to read the textbook and study hard but you learn a thousand times more that way. You truly earn the grade you get. Gerry Gendlin is the man.
