Quarter Taken: Winter 2021
COVID-19 This review was submitted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your experience may vary.
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!

Quarter 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.

Amazing class, great professor!

Quarter Taken: N/A 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.
