As I finish my last year of PSCI, I cannot help but think back to my first course with an incredible prof. You were smart, funny, and extremely kind with every student. You always had time for questions, and never turned anyone away who needed extra clarification. Thank you for sparking my interest in PSCI. You truly changed my life. RIP.

Not for everyone that's for sure but not a difficult class, 2 essays and the final and that's it. The content is rather dry and it's hard to decipher what is important or not from his lectures. However, Professor Nutbrown is a great guy, funny too.

The style of his lecturing isn't for everyone. I found it hard to keep focus during his class. The course work is light though. Two essays, no midterms, and a fairly easy final.

He is a great professor with interesting lectures, not it is not for everyone. Sometimes it can be hard to pay attention in class. Just read the textbook and go to your tutorials and you will do fine.

One of the best profs I've ever taken a class with. He covers everything in enough depth that you learn plenty, but not in a way that overloads you with info. He's a fair grader for the exam, and will regrade any essay if you don't agree with the mark. Recommend this prof.

The course material is dry at the beginning, but it gets better. His notes and explanations are of a consistently high standard. He's a funny guy too. The assigned essays are interesting and thought provoking. However, the textbook for the course is horrible.

His lectures are always interesting but hard to figure out which parts are important and how you can use the lectures to answer questions on the final.

Why can't they all be this engaging & witty & human? When i think back, i should have visited his office more regularly. Great story-teller. Even better at making you think.

A very doctrinaire Leftist. If you don't toe the party line, his lectures will be grating. He is a Dutch Uncle Tom.
