I took his civ class in the 90's and got a B. He is a very kind and caring man. I am fortunate to have known him.

I was enrolled in one of Joe Fuhrmann's classes in 1979 (western civilization) at MSU. It proved to be an experience that changed, and continues to change, how I view the world. Still have the text books! Loved it! I was an occasional guest in his home, and I have fond memories of my time in his class and in his home. Lloyd Greenwell, BME

I took this class in the late 90's. Overall, I thought he was a good professor who took a lot of interest in his students, when they were willing to make an effort.

I wish I hadn't taken his class. The reading was so boring and his test long and difficult. I made a C in the class and counted myself lucky. I think I got the best grade he gave in our class. Thank goodness he is now retired. I read the other bio's and all I can say is that he lost his zeal and interest in students his last semester at MSU.

Took Dr. Fuhrmann in the mid 90s. Knows his stuff more than most professors know their trade. One can actually learn from a man like this, but you have to be willing.

Fuhrmann is a complete quack job! He is like a mad scientist and his tests are ridiculous. He straight up lied to me about my grade also. THIS GUY IS HORRIBLE! AVOID!

Comment:
I had this professor in 1994. I now teach college, and I chair the Communications department at my school. Does that make me worthy to comment? No. Did this professor easily push the slackers aside to focus on those who obviously wanted to learn? Yes. I admire the man. Yes, he's challenging.

Difficult class, but I learned a lot and was confident in his ability to teach. If your lazy and you don't like school don't take him. But if you want to learn I highly recommend his class, especially the Russian History classes.

Comment:
Very scatterbrained. Impossible tests. He will test you over 5 chapters in the book, so an average of 200 pages. It would be okay but he will take the smallest detail and make it a question. He even quizzed us on pictures from the text. Expected us to be able to write 3 well-written essays in 50 minutes for our first exam.

Do not take this man! I think he is the worst teacher I've had at MSU so far. He gives quizes every week that are pretty much cover only the readings in the book are are very hard. He scribbles things on the board and explains them horribly. When he replaced Schell (after his stroke) lots of people dropped. I'm just praying I pass this class.

Some do not like Fuhrmann's Style, but he definately knows his stuff. If your Major is History and you do well in his class your going to make it. He challenges you. He is extremely helpful and eager in the classroom. Read the text and you will make an "A" im sure of that.

Basically I took my walkman to class and listened to tunes. My only problem with this class is it was too easy. Really nice guy, when valentine's day rolled around he gave me a box of chocalates.

DO NOT TAKE HIM!! He goes VERY fast and does not care if you understand it or not. He grades very hard and his test are very hard. You have a quiz every week and its not just a 5 question quiz its like 10-15 questions and they are all types. I went to his office servel times asking for help and he did nothing..

I took Dr. Fuhrmann's class back in 1993 (when most of you were in diapers). I am now a college professor (Humanities). I am not saying he's Socrates, but TRUST me, he knows his stuff. I do take issue with the comments you folks leave. Want an education? Take Furghman and READ. Want to whine? Go home--and learn to spell. This is college.

He is just old and needs to retire. His grading is blinded by his biases. He is a poor judge of character and talent. He told me that I wasnt cut out for college, I graduated my undergrad****laude (honors). Going to law school in the Fall. If you can avoid him in class. And this is from someone who had him for something more than required civ 101

Comment:
Fuhrmann's teaching methods are very odd, at least for history. He had wanted 6,000 words for the paper (more than HIS 300), he bargained w/us and it's 2,500. He isn't very clear on things. I have to say that he at least cares, somewhat, about the students. He is very reachable out of class. He wants us to pass, his style makes that tough though.

His voice is boring, his lectures are boring and his appearance is boring. Everything about this man screams DONT DO IT! It is true he test on things that he doesn't even cover (captions in the book for christ sake!) You better be prepared to study and have no life if you want to keep you GPA up after taking him!
