Well, pretty much like everyone says, he's a very understanding person. Whatever excuse you can find he'll accept it, he also is very lenient on late submissions. As for workload it's nearly non-existent except that you have to do long and useless work. I've had to do 3 essays in his Media Messages and Social issues class and he always expects at least 300 words above the minimum if you don't want a flat 60%. No exams but there are a lot of evaluated classwork and final essay is worth 40%.

Had him for Ethics for college students. You dont have to show up to class, he doesnt take attendence plus his class is very boring and hard to understand. He sends you all his notes. Just show up for the discussions and you'll get 100. 40% debate project which takes up 4-5 weeks of school year. Always shows up late and canceled 4 classes in 6 weeks of school. Overall, class is easy, and he's a nice dude that understand students struggles

I had him for "Ethics for college students" last semester, incredibly laid back class. He often shows up late, and doesn't care if you do the same. Also never took attendance. Some of the material we covered was interesting but for the most part I really never showed up and still finished with a 75, didn't buy the book either.

Robert is a cool dude. I had him for Media Messages and Social Issues and he is kind of old school and uses an old textbook which is not the best. There were no exams, only essays that are kind of long and can be boring. However the class is quite easy but the lectures are boring since he simply talks during the whole class and does not visually support his claims (which can be hard for a media class).

Unless you're good at writing bs, do not take this teacher. When he says the minimum word count is 500, he expects you to write 1000. And that's for a regular assignment. He's easy and lax, but haveing to work extra on the homework is not worth it.

It is very easy to pass his class however, he does not explain the final essay worth 40% of the mark. He cares much more about quantity over quality. Would not take him again.

Meh... He's not a bad teacher but isn't compassionate and gives attitude and lip to students who speak their mind. His class (ethics for college students) is the MOST EASIEST class EVER. Just show up

Really easy Media class, doesn't explain the assignments, but you'll get really good on them. The media logs are up to you though Usually ends class early, but near the end of the semester we had to makeup time that we missed

Really easy teacher and the media class is really intertaining. However he claims to know much more than he does. Hes really not the brightest guy. Makes all sorts of claims without any evidence and also just says things that are plain wrong. Eg: Radio waves go through anything - ... Except tunnels. Things like that, but all in all take the class you will do well and he lets you do whatever and it accaully does make you aware of a lot of things. Oh and also takes FOREVER to make groups!

He's an ok humanities teacher. His class is completely pointless though and you learn nothing. The upside is that it's an extremely easy class.

Awesome for QM, a must take if you hate math in general, because he doesn't teach any of it in QM, just the methods behind it all. Easy grader overall.

This guy is the coolest old person I've ever been taught by. He's very entertaining, and you'll never get bored, even if your class is at 8:30 in the morning.
