Take this class. Now.

Professor James Curley is an intelligent, knowledgeable, and effective instructor who always does his best to make his lectures interesting with videos and interesting facts. The material itself is also very interesting.

He seems like a really cool guy and genuinely wants the class to do well, and I felt his exams were extremely fair and straightforward (all the questions are short answer, though). He is not out to get you or trick you on the exams whatsoever; he literally just wants to know if you know the material he presented to you. The exams are not difficult if you study. Like I said, he is very fair.

There was honestly nothing about the class I didn’t like. Just take this class!


One midterm, one paper, one final exam. Minimal readings.
