Fantastic prof. Genuinely made me love political theory. His lectures are informative and enjoyable. His tests and papers were very straightforward and the exam was exactly what he said he would be. He is my favourite professor. Would HIGHLY recommend.

What a fabulous lecturer. Alumni Hall is a terrible place to have a class, but Carvounas actually made it worth it. Every lecture was like a story, and political theory became suddenly understandable. Some profs have a tendency to give their interpretation of a philosopher's work - not this dude.

Best professor I have ever had at u of t! He simplifies and explains the texts extremely well and can even make some of the most confusing points interesting and easy to understand. I recommend taking any of his courses whether you are in political science, or would just like to have him as a prof!

Comment:
Carvounas made POL320 way better than it could have been with another professor. His lectures are very helpful for tests and assignments but they can be hard to listen to because he just speaks with no aids for the entire lecture. Can repeat himself, but he does it to ensure that you understand what's important. Makes hard material easy to grasp

Comment:
This course was truly a learning experience. The topic was fascinating (Ancient Greece- from a Political Perspective). What was more amazing were the concepts of politics that affect our daily lives to this very day. The laws that govern our lives were formed by politicians millenia ago. The Prof really relives this era during the lectures. A+

Hot and he's received his BA and MA from UCLA Berkely. He's one of the best professor's I have had. His test's are really straightforward if you go over his material and do the readings. Attending his class is almost mandatory because he hints at the important material.

Engaging, enthusiastic lecturer. Tests and assignments relatively straightforward. Exam was a little difficult (given a list of random quotes from over 7 books and had to provide the title/author and definition). Overall though, he's a great prof

Carvounas is one of most animated lecturers I've had yet. His lectures are engaging and provide a clear and overview of the material. He does not respond to feedback on the course as that would mean having to make changes (he recycles his material) starts lates, ends early and starts lecture with a recap of the past lecture for 15-20 mins.

Through all my years at University there has not been a single prof I have liked. I just don't like Profs period! This Prof does not fit that mold. The ONLY prof I've ever liked and respect. Was considering leaving , all I can say is please stay for the sake of us students.

Great Prof, really knows what he is talking about, 3 tests , an essay. and obviously a final exam so the workload was a little higher than what ive seen thus far in 300 series pol courses. but other than that, passionate prof and makes the class worth it, interesting texts as well
