Hawley, John Silver_nugget
Hinduism

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

I loved Prof Hawley's Hinduism class. Hawley himself was a vibrant and exciting lecturer who very clearly knew very well what he was talking about and could answer just about any question. Yes, he goes off on tangents, but they're always relevant, interesting, and fun. The course material was well-structured and well-taught; there were no surprises in terms of essay topics or anything on the exams. This class secured my choice of a religion major.

Workload:

2 essays with a given, interesting but challenging topic. Easy-to-medium midterm and final. Medium reading which isn't strictly necessary all the time but makes the class much more worth it and will absolutely bring your grade up.
