Class is heavily based on lecture material but luckily Pohlad's are great. Refreshing to have a prof that's as passionate as him. Really interesting subject material. You can get by with just the lectures for everything but the papers so take detailed notes.

Prof. Pohlad was extremely caring and always wanted to hear from the class. He made everyone feel welcomed and was into his material which rubs off on the rest of the class. I took Lincoln in Film and he got me to love Lincoln. We had a few papers and 2 quizzes which were all easy. If you show up and pay some attention you'll get an easy A.

I loved Professor Pohlad!! His class was insanely interesting, he's an engaging speaker, an encouraging teacher, and a great guy overall. If you get the chance to take one of his classes, you will not be disappointed. He cares a lot about student feedback too and will check in with the class every now and again. 10/10

Professor Pohlad is one of my favorite professors at DePaul, if not my absolute favorite. He is so kind, engaging, and is highly knowledgable on the course content. There is not too much outside work, but be prepared to participate and take a lot of notes; he doesn't write much on the whiteboard! Many of what is on the exams are taken from notes.

Such a genuine and knowledgeable guy. The course was lecture heavy, but be prepared to memorize photographs and write a research paper for the final exam. He provides a lot of feedback and help outside of class.

Prof. Pohlad is a really great professor and a great guy in general! Lincoln in Film was not a very difficult class by any means and Pohlad's enthusiasm for Lincoln was contagious! The only downside the class was the pop quizzes, make sure you read and watch all of the films thoroughly! Overall, he was a kind, funny, and interesting professor!

Really nice guy and cares about his students but this class was so hard. Memorization of almost all of the material and artists and the midterm and final were really hard. Study guide was really vague I didnt know what was gonna be on the test. I took this for an art requirement and now my gpa went down because of it.

Dr. Pohlad is one of the best professors I've had at DePaul! He genuinely cares about his students and wants them to succeed. I took his Lincoln in film LSP class and it was super easy. We only had 3 papers including the final and a couple of quizzes. The class had amazing discussions and the workload was suuper easy. Dr. P is just a great guy!

The class was lecture heavy but he is very smart, passionate, and funny about the subject. He is a fairly tough grader but he is willing to help if you're struggling with something. The only thing I didn't like about his class was bathroom breaks weren't allowed unless during the designated break time he assigned which made me feel like I was 10.

Very fun and interesting prof. Most class sessions is just come in, take notes from his lectures, do some reading for the next class session. The exams are pretty straight forward, just memorize the art piece and it's time period. The final paper is a little bit long, but it's fun (you go to the art institute for it).

I wasn't feeling well one day, and needed to use the restroom and he interrogated me after class about it. Also, my grandmother died the week of the final for History or Photography, and he wouldn't let me make up the final, so I had to miss her funeral. (It was on the day of the test).

I had Pohlad for my Discover Chicago class and he was amazing. He knew so much about sculpture in Chicago and was obviously passionate about it. He also taught us so much about finding our way around the city & places to visit. And we stopped at Starbucks on a daily basis! He did a great job preparing incoming freshmen for the college experience.

I’ve taken him numerous times – easily my favorite art history professor! Very knowledgeable and passionate about what he teaches. His lectures are interesting and he often makes funny comments. Plus he’s so willing to help his students, whether it’s just clarifying a point or reading a draft. 2 papers, midterm, final, and notes from the readings.

I have taken prior courses with Pohlad and he is such a breath of fresh air. He makes you want to come to class because he is actually excited about what he teaches. Even if you just need to take an Art History requirement, take a course of his. He's organized, kind, and passionate. You'll love his classes!
