HIST 130, taken Spring 2021 Submitted June 24, 2021 Grade Received: A

I took Pete Stacey for the past two quarters History 122, and History 130. Its two essays for the class, and if you pay attention and genuinely engage with the material you should be good. Professor was pretty cool as well hes just a little hard to get in touch with. Otherwise it was a great time.

HIST 191C Submitted March 31, 2012 Grade Received: N/A

Professor Stacey is amazing. I took History 191C with him, and enjoyed both the course material and the discussions. The class is basically made up of one presentation which is 30% of the grade, and 15-20 page paper which is 70% of the grade. I thought his grading was fair, not tough at all. Overall, highly recommended professor.

HIST 121A Submitted June 19, 2013 Grade Received: N/A

Pete is a good professor. His class is pretty straight forward. He tends to "leave planet Earth" and talk entire class nonstop on philosophical matters, which was putting me to sleep. But he shows that he cares about the subject and the students, and also grades everything himself - which is a great plus!

HIST 128A Submitted Jan. 10, 2012 Grade Received: N/A

I took 128A with Stacey spring 2011. He seems like a pretty chill guy. Lectures can be a bit boring. I went to class everyday, but rarely paid attention. Regardless, take home midterm and take home final. Never went to office hours. Ended up with an A+.

HIST 122A Submitted March 29, 2013 Grade Received: N/A

This is a great class to take if you're planning on law school and need an easy A or A+ to boost your GPA.

There's a take-home midterm and take-home final, both with a wide variety of prompts to choose from. Don't do any reading until exam week - just pick a prompt, do all the reading that's relevant to that prompt, and ignore the rest. Show that you've done the readings by citing them heavily on the exam and it's hard not to do well. I got an A+ with pretty minimal effort.

Stacey does his best to keep the material interesting, but it's a bit dry unless humanism or political theory is your thing. Do go to class - it's super helpful for the exams and he takes attendance two or three times a quarter.

HIST 122A, taken Winter 2016 Submitted March 27, 2016 Grade Received: A+

Amazing class, great professor!

HIST 122A, taken Fall 2019 Submitted Dec. 21, 2019 Grade Received: A-

He is a really nice guy. Pretty witty and clearly in love with the material and enjoys helping students. The class consisted of two papers. The midterm was 5-6 pages and the final was 6-7 pages. There was a large choice of options for prompts and they were all pretty easy. He does expect you to attend class and incorporate what is discussed in class into the papers. While there are slides, he normally uses them as a jumping off point and talks about other things for a while before returning to the slides. Overall, a solid professor.

HIST 122A, taken Winter 2021 Submitted March 29, 2021 Grade Received: A+

Class grade consists of 2 essays (5-6 page midterm and 6-7 page final). The professor did not record lectures but that's not a problem if you attended lectures live and did the readings. The professor is very helpful and provides plenty of opportunities for students to ask questions. Overall, would take a class with him again!
