I loved his Psychology of Art class! If you want an easy and interesting complementary class do definitively take this one. If you do everything he wants (i.e. have fun doing the project and journal), then you'll do more than fine. Very very interesting and funny teacher! =D

He tries as much as he can to make psych interesting, obviously not an easy task. A lot of reading for his tests. Tests are mutiple choice on the book and a couple of long answer questions on the class things. My suggestion is GO TO CLASS

Simple THE best. Knows his stuff (he's been teaching intro for almost 40 yrs) but always willing to learn new things. Values his students and their opinions and respects them. Very relax, average exams although a little long. Have to study for real. A little unclear for papers but very clear for exams. Very funny imitations and not so funny jokes/puns (that become funny because they're so not funny...) Absolute Must take!! Rare class you actually feel bad skipping.

If you don't understand a concept with him, then you'll never understand it! His clarity is unbelievable. I got a high 70 in into to psych and a high 80 in adl psych. Intro to psych was my lowest grade at Marianopolis. He's incredibly funny and everyone should take him and witness the Climan Experience!

Had him for intro and then took him for psych of art. Super fun and easy going class until the last three weeks where he crams in a test, a 20 page paper and a creative project. He is great but this class is a little unorganized and unclear. Take it if you like to do nothing and create at the end.

I don't get it. He was atop the Marianopolis ratings this past summer now he's dropped down. He's a fine teacher, who knows his subject inside out. Really funny, tests are challenging but you can get good marks if you take good notes (he talks really fast, so a computer would be best) and if you study from the textbook (DON'T FORGET TO DO THAT).

Don't understand the ratings here...His classes are really interesting and just because he doesn't spoon feed you notes by writing them out word for word in a ppt doesnt mean he's not giving enougn information. He covers the bases and if you read the text you'll a) do well on tests and b) learn a lot of material. Friendly guy and good teacher

The exams are fairly easy and contain answers such as c)he was smoking too much pot d)he was smoking way too much pot. However, you HAVE to know all the material to have a good grade. You have to take lots of notes and ALWAYS read all the book. He also has an annoying "UMM" but you learn to forget
