Comment:
This professor is in every way the WORST professor Ive ever had at bonas. If you have different views than him, he will punish you for it. Hes also extremely rude. He is so hard to understand (speaking and written) that I had to take pictures of his handwriting on the board to show faculty that his lessons in no way can be comprehended

Comment:
Professor Olegs class itself was not difficult. However, he is an extremely boring lecturer. The entire class had a hard time staying awake because he talks in different languages sometimes and its hard to follow. He assigns a lot of group work and presentations which I found annoying because not everyone will contribute to it!!

He is a very nice man but holds a very hard class. You would think this class would be easy but it is not. He makes you write 4 papers out of 8 prompts for the semester which he grades incredibly hard. On top of that, there are many (what he calls "discussions") group projects that need to be discussed, made, and presented in the same class period.

The class is very boring, along with the fact that you will have a difficult time receiving good grades if you have a different opinion than him. He is hard to understand in lecture so try to sit in the front.

He is the worst. If you dont agree with him you won't get good grades. Also, thinks he is the smartest man on Earth and LOVES Russia!

Lots of group projects. Lots of papers. He is pretty interesting and funny in an unintentional way. This class is nice because it is not stressful. Overall, its nice.

DO NOT TAKE HIS CLASS!! He's the worst teacher I've had. Discussions are important, and if you don't participate you will fail. He will tell you your opinion is wrong and he's very brutal when it comes to grading group discussions. If you have him, good luck

Smartest man I've ever met and extremely passionate about his work (though you can't tell it from his face). I left feeling enlightened.

Hell there are so many opinions on this web site.I bet those who criticized complain contently about other things too. The professor is so nice and is so eager to help. his course is fun to those who like to analyze and think about things. It requires work and a right mindset for life.

Comment:
Worst first semester in college because of having him as a prof.Very condescending attitude toward other opinions.Class discussion HUGE part of grade;hard to participate when he doesnt want to hear other views.Class focuses on religion when that is not supposed to be the primary focus.Only thing learned is to warn others to not have him as a prof

This is required for first semester freshmen/transfers. Caution: the class is not easy. Texts are difficult & new to most students. Dr. Bychkov is extremely knowledgeable (he read the texts in the original languages!) & you can learn more from a tough teacher. Plus, he does allow make up participation. if you read/study, this class can be rewarding

Bychkov is one of the worst teachers I've ever had. If you have any choice at all, find someone else to take the course with. He's grades participation heavily, but if you try to participate and give opinions, he'll laugh and say you're wrong. Won't give out evaluations for you to fill out because he knows they're all bad anyway.

extremely boring class! it's all about participation. he'll ask for your opinion then tell you it's wrong. he expects you to be knowledgeable in religion and talk about it so if you're not religious, good luck! bottom line: he's very opinionated and NEVER take his class! oh and he's russian and has a veryyy thick accent, HARD TO UNDERSTAND!

I'm one of the few that actually liked this guy. I learned a lot from the readings and I did well in his class. You have to participate in class. I can't tell you how many times I didn't read the entire reading the night before but saved my grade by discussing what I did read.

Oleg Bychkov is a wonder of a man, a true example of the essence of human existence. Humored by the small things in life, his eccentricity (probably just an off-shoot of his foreign nature) fills the room with laughter, smiles, snoring...unfortunately everything but learning. He is a big child. But we love him all the same...just like a teddy bear.

ouch.. painful. professor is highly educated, but hard to understand. READ WHAT HE TELLS YOU TO. class participation is crucial. answer his questions, even if you're wrong. he lightens up when the class participates and seems interested. if you slack, it will show.
