THE COURSE TAUGHT WAS ACTUALLY: ARMENIAN 152: Modern Drama as a Vehicle for Social Critique

He's a great human being who knows a ton about the Armenian people, culture, and literature. He will provide ample information (too much if one may say) and his lectures are therefore somewhat long and boring. The good thing about this class was that both the midterm and the final are a take home. The grade is based on midterm, essay, final and participation. It was a class of about 15 people. A lot of us are scared that we will get bad grades. He expects so much from us in term of doing background research for the paper. The biggest "let-down" or negative aspect is the fact that our first assignment (the midterm) was due like 6 days before Thanksgiving. We literally have no idea how we're doing in the class. It's nerve wrecking and that's why I wouldn't recommend him. He also made two trips to Armenia during the quarter so he cut about two/three weeks worth of lecture. At the time, we thought it's nice since it sounded like vacation but I would have rather had him present (we met 2X a week) than gone since I'm clueless as to what to write for the essay.
Overall, yes, he's smart and learned in the subject. I just wish I knew how I was doing BEFORE the 9th week of the Fall Quarter. Whether I, or the other 14 ppl., would like to drop the course, well, it's too late for that so we're all stuck with Cs and Bs... O yea, and the two girls who might get an A.

Prof. Cowe is a really decent lecturer. He delves into every theme of the readings and really gets the students to participate and understand everything. However, he is dry and often you'll find yourself falling asleep.

But it is an easy class, all you have to do is do the readings. honestly.

Cowe is a really nice guy, but he is EXTREMELY boring. His lectures are long and difficult to follow. He is also a pretty hard grades: he requires a lot of precision. You have to do a lot of reading (and do it carefully) in order to write a decent essay.

ACTUAL COURSE IS ARM DRAMA 152 - NOT INCLUDED IN HERE

He is smart and bright and will be able to answer all of your questions. I'm not sure what people mean when they say his class is easy. Specifically regarding his Modern Armenian Drama as a Vehicle for Social Critique, our first assignment (midterm) was given back to us the day before Thanksgiving. We had no other indication of our progress in the class until practically 2 weeks before the end of the quarter. Both midterm, essay and final are a take home and he specifically says it should take us about 2 hours to complete them. I spent one whole day on the 1st half of the midterm and received an B+; one of the highest in the class (there were only 15 ppl. so we compared grades). His expectations are quite stringent and daunting. Other than that, he's a great professor and I enjoyed his lectures.
