Best professor I have had to Oberlin. Changed by entire intellectual trajectory for the better in so many ways. Everyone should take a MRT even if they don't know if they are interested.

Comment:
Very very kind man and helpful in office hours. Tons of different reading for my Recent Developments class, varied sources. Had to purchase 7 different small books, but grade is based only on 2 essays on small sections of different books (you pick), a longer essay expanding the smaller and a final. Very thorough, but confusing and boring lectures.

Who are these people writing the glowing reviews? I thought the consensus was that Kamitsuka's a lousy professor. He's a nice enough guy, but his lectures seem like dry recitations of the same old stuff, and he doesn't really add anything new to the material or even assess the content - just sort of restates it. And his attendance policy is absurd

Kamitsuka is by far the best Prof I've had at Oberlin. Every student I talked to you in my class LOVED him. If you can get in to Modern Religious Thought- TAKE IT.

Comment:
I guess I'm in the minority, but I found his lectures (apparently improvised) to be frustratingly repetitive and uniformative. I also didn't appreciate how slow he was in returning papers; one paper was turned in before midterms and not returned until the final week of classes!

The hardest and smartest professor I have had at Oberlin. I love going to class with Dr. K because just listening to him talk makes me think about things in new ways!

Kamitsuka was a great lecturer. It was also very easy to talk to him outside of the classroom. Overall an intelligent but "down to Earth" kind of guy

Relg 226 was the hardest class I have ever taken. I spent hours doing the reading and trying to fully understand the reading. The whole semester you feel really confused, but in the end, you end up learning the material with a moderate amount of authority

Professor K is one of the best teachers out there. I was completely uninterested in the subject matter and he got me interested. I love his class
