Undergraduate Variable Topics Research Seminars: History -- Africa
Simply put Worger is boring. In addition to this it is evident that he has a strong dislike for undergrad students and is quite partial to graduate students (especially graduate students in the history dept.). Moreover, he is unhelpful, indeed unwilling to engage in outside/office hours time with students. The course basically revolved around a paper that was over 60% of our grade- his directions for the paper were unclear and students had many questions- most of which he answered apathetically and uncaringly if even at all. Indeed, if it was not a student who was helping him with research or actively engaged within the history department, it seemed to be not worth his time. I received a B in the class and after several failed attempts to try to meet with him (he was never available and only offered to leave my paper in his box with no promise to discuss it or the rational behind the grade I received) I gave up trying to understand him, the class, my grade, and the reasons why he did not care about students. At best this class was discouraging both academically and personally.
