Comment:
Dr. Fox was one of my favorite professors I had at my time at UA. I took GN 260 for a humanities credit and it was by far my favorite class I've ever taken. We had to read a good amount of books and were tested on them, but it wasn't anything that I took the time to really study for.

Good professor. Clear about upcoming quizzes and tests, since everything was online for this class this semester. All you do is take quizzes and tests over films and book about the Holocaust. Very interesting class.

Comment:
Holocaust in Film and Lit was a fairly interesting (if depressing) class. Dr. Fox is very knowledgeable about the topic. We read numerous books but the quizzes weren't too challenging. You spend much of the class time watching movies so if that's your thing, take this class. He's not very enthusiastic but then again it's a class about genocide...

Comment:
Dr. Fox's Holocaust class is one of my favorite classes I've ever taken. Class isn't mandatory but there's no other way to learn the material. All of the books assigned were genuinely interesting . Every quiz/test (including the final!) is True/False with a few fill in the blanks. If you study the study guides and pay attention it's an easy A

Comment:
Course consists of 4 exams and several reading quizzes. Most questions are True/False but there are some essay questions on tests. He creates study guides prior to each test that tell you explicitly what you will be tested on. Everything he highlights in class is on the exams, so just take notes and you'll get an easy A.

Fantastic professor. He covers all of the material for the test ahead of time, nothing unexpected and theyre all true/false tests with the questions being obvious answers. His holocaust class was my favorite class ive ever taken. lots of reading, but theyre interesting books. Highly recommend taking his classes.

Probably my most favorite professor on campus! He cares about what he teaches and likes to hear insight from his students. I would take him all over again if I could. Absolutely amazing.

Comment:
Super nice guy, but really interested in the Oedipus and Electra complexes. I felt like he tried to find that in most pieces we read. Also I've never seen anything as disturbing as the Tin Drum movie, which he showed in class; the sexual content was excessive and unnecessary. Nice guy, would not take again. Also tests were almost all true/false.

By no means intending to sound unprofessional, but Dr. Fox is the man. He is very passionate and has great charisma. He would easily make jokes with the class but knew how to hit the real depth of a topic. The class took work but he was extremely fair and always recognized when a students were pushing themselves. One of the best, without a doubt.

Dr. Fox is an excellent professor. I took two of his classes, Holocaust in Film & Literature and Nazi Germany. I learned so much from him and would have taken more of his courses if I'd had enough time in my schedule.

My favorite professor so far here at UA. I took his German Literature class. A lot of reading, but he made sure we understood the material and meanings, and talked in depth about them. Very helpful and very interesting!! I want to have him again as a professor!

He is a very nice guy who always gives study guides. Tests get harder each time but not too bad. You do have a read books and have weekly quizzes/tests. Movies are not in english most of the time but have subtitles. In my opinion because I am not a german major very boring

Great teacher!!! The Holocaust class was SO interesting, and I really enjoyed reading the books he assigned, along with the films we watched in class. Tests are easy, straight forward, true-false questions. Loved this class and I highly recommend it.

Great teacher. Easy class if you just listen and write down what he says. Make sure you know what the poem/story is about before going to class if you didn't have time to read it (wikipedia)

he is by far one of the most interesting people that I have ever met! This class is not like any other. It is so interesting and he gives you a totally different side of how you would see things. If i could take one class for all four years in college, it would be this one!
