Ethnic and Religious Minorities
Fall 2018 - Professor Boum is a really nice, approachable guy, and though boring and long sometimes his lectures could also be intersting. If you need an easy A this is an okay class. His biggest downfall is his disorgaization and lack of clarity. He has the most confusing powerpoint slides and though he puts them online, not everything on them matters and he lectures a lot of important details that arent on the slides. He claims to have required readings but I never read them, I just studied the study guide and googled most of the terms, (though one the first midterm, when he said study which countries the different groups reside, everyone though he meant the main ones we focused on, but then he tested us on a bunch of sub-groups that I doubt anyone knew). I got an A in the class probably because he has like 25% of free points and the exams aren't that difficult if you memorize the study guide. But there is a group essay as a final, and I think I just got lucky with group members that actually did their part, so be careful.
