Comment:
Excellent professor, would recommend his class to anyone. No midterm, although the final is lengthy which makes up for it. He is passionate and makes class interesting, he really wants you to get a good marl with lots of opportunities for extra credit. Very approachable and understanding. Nothing bad to say.

Really good prof! I found this class to be really interesting and there was a reasonable workload as well. Dr. Greifenhagen does four quizzes instead of a midterm and they require a lot of study to do well on. However, I found that they prepared me quite well for the final. His class is also worth taking for the free candy :)

Terrible prof. He is really interested in his material, but his TA's mark terrible on the quizzes and he is unclear about his assignments. Do not take his class

He was really clear with his expectations. If you pay attention in class and study for the exams then you will do well in this class. He is helpful as well if you need help with anything. Great Prof!

Comment:
I took two classes in Islam from Volker and I was very impressed by his knowledge and professionalism. There is a lot of content covered, but he makes it interesting and thought provoking. A fair marker - if you apply yourself, you will do well. Also, he is a genuinely nice guy. A great prof. Very highly recommended.

Super nice! Such an easy prof! No midterms, just 4 small quizzes. No need to read textbook as long as you attend lectures. As well, puts all his notes on UR courses, so don't even need to take notes as long as you have a printer! Marks very fairly and provides example papers of what he expects. Also gives bonas assignments for bonas marks. Awesome!

good prof. tons of work!I can never memorize how I endure the days for preparing for quiz and final. memorizing all 9 religions is just like learing a foreigh language! so much work but as long as you work so hard, you can get good mark. I get 95+ in this class but it so exhausts me!!!

This class was intense but that is a must need for some people to keep on top of the subject. He really tries to immerse you in what you are learning. By giving assignments almost everyday, it keeps interest alive. Does not just drone on and on, but keeps lectures light but with still a lot of information.

Hate him! This was my only 100 lev.class out of 5 and by far the most work. The assignments are worth little but require TONS of work and he marks very hard on quizzes and papers. He says he doesn't believe in midterms but his quizzes are worth like 15% each haha not 1-3% like other profs. my mark was okay but only because of the work I put in work

This prof. had an overall good class, the marks are broken up in a way that gives you time(no assignments or nething due after reading week). He also had quizzes instead of a midterm, which is good if your not the greatest at studying. Id say it is a fairly decent class, and if you can take it do it, i took it as an elective and found it decent.

Best Prof ever! Clear, helpful, encourages an accepting and friendly class atmosphere--expects much of his students, but similarly provides much as a prof--I've never seen a prof so dedicated to providing quality education! Dr. Griefenhagen, you rock!!!!!!

Wow!! Awesome teacher. Very learned, clear, and interesting, especially if you're really interested in RLST. A lot of work (i.e. summarizing the Bible chapter by chapter) but you learn tons. Definitely worth it.

He is a great prof. He is very passionate about what he does and the classes are always interesting. Be prepared to do a LOT of work in this class. There is an assignment given out everyday that are due the next class, not to mention two large assignments.
