Quarter: Fall 2016
Grade: A
Dec. 15, 2016

Professor Burke is very engaged with what he's teaching. At times it can be tough to follow due to the large amount of information thrown at you, but all the slideshows are posted online, so it's okay. Burke is always willing to take questions and help you if you ask. Additionally, he's very interested in making you interested in the subject field. The workload was somewhat heavy, especially toward the end of the quarter with the amount of essays due (the essays also require a visit to LACMA and a visit to an outside lecture), but the material is genuinely interesting and engaging, as well as pretty straightforward and simple. The tests are also very easy. Overall, I really enjoyed both this class and this professor. If you take it in the 2016-2017 school year, try to get Jacob Damm as a TA. He was great, can't rave enough about that guy!

While the class was easy to accomplish, I don't know how much I accredit to the professor or to the TA. I felt like I best understood the material given by my TA and not Professor Burke. He seems like a decent guy and his lectures weren't boring or monotone... Just not for me I suppose

This class was pretty easy as long as you took the time to remember everything! Its really just about names, dates, and time periods/empires. There is a lot of information in class but the TA's kinda give you the main points during discussion so that was really helpful. There was one essay and it was pretty easy! Make sure to ask your TAs for feedback because it shows youre interested and thats what GE's are all about.
