Heuer, Larry Silver_nugget
Social Conflict Seminar

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Prof Heuer really knows his stuff and loves what he does. This seminar had a lot of weekly reading and responses, but it was manageable. The class was mainly run by professor Heuer (not the students) who got us started with discussions, and he would often provide personal opinions of the articles. Notably, he always took the time to answer any specific questions that we had and he never forced anyone to speak who didn't volunteer. The final paper assignment was very challenging, but the grading for the class was very fair and generous. I personally did not have an interest in the area of psychology this seminar talked about (justice and fairness), but I still really enjoyed the class, mainly because of the relaxed atmosphere brought into the room by the professor each week (along with the snacks). I would highly recommend this professor to anyone, as well as this seminar.


Weekly readings (2-3 articles), short (1 paragraph) responses to each article, and a final paper ~15-20pgs.
