Comment:
Not a good professor. I thought he was disorganized as well as petty and overly opinionated politically and religiously. Contemptible example of a prof that uses a little "power" to preach his agenda. Learned quite a bit but could not stand this guy.

He is a fabulous instructor with vast knowledge in his field. My only complaint is that assignments were not graded until the last minute. But other than that, he is wonderful. I would highly recommend any of his classes.

Dr. Rahme is very helpful and dedicated to students who are serious about their coursework. If you aren't a serious student he can tell and your grades will reflect that. On the flipside, if you put effort into your work he will give you good grades and due praise. He likes to give away maps as rewards so he's dorky but a great guy and professor.

Great professor because he loves to teach and he is absolutely brilliant. He reacts well to good students who go above and beyond the course work expecially in the area of the Muslim World. He has a cute bum as well.

For his online class - it's as if it were an afterthought. He was very disorganized and it showed.

Dr. Rahme is brilliant and a great professor. I would never refer to him as 'easy' to anyone looking to take a history course but he is fair and has high standards for his students. His lectures are engaging because you can tell that he loves the material. I'm taking all the classes that he offers because his classes reinforce my love for the field

Professor Rahme loves History and it shows in his lectures, and the amount of work he does preparing for them, and class materials (i.e. course handbook). This love of history also transfers into taking essays, tests, and grading seriously. If you want an easy A, DO NOT take Rahme!!! If you want to actually learn, TAKE Rahme!! I enjoyed the course.

Dr. Rahme was very helpful to me. His class was difficult, but anytime I needed help outside of class, he was there. If you don't like challenging classes, don't take this one, but I learned a lot from him, and liked his class.

Wow, some of the reviews I see here are harsh. Dr. Rahme's english is PERFECTLY understandable and he is far from an idiot. He is very difficult but with effort you can get a good grade. You learn A LOT with him and expect to do lots of studying outside of class. Bitter Students seem to expect an easy A out of him and I suspect a little racism

Very simply put: an idiot! He is a terrible teacher and can barely speak English. He grades on effort, not on your actual grade. I had a 4.0 before I took his class. I got A's on everything with no effort, so I got a B. Do not waste your time or money!

Comment:
Very nice man. Wants to help, but teaches at too high a level for a 100 level survey course. Grading is ridiculous. I am a 4.0 student and am struggling to be in the B+ range. Any other prof, I'd be getting an A. Map grading is downright silly.

One of the best history teachers I have had at UMF. Not an easy A, but if you want to learn something, you won't regret taking his classes. He's definitely a quality teacher who expects alot from his students...which other profs could learn from!

Intro to Islam...hardest class I ever had at UM. I think he grades a lot on effort; and if you put forward that effort you'll get a decent grade. I really learned a lot from him.

Professor was rude and prejudice against women in his class. He would call on male students before he would call on female and actually stated to two girls (for talking) that he could cure diarrhea of the stomach, but not the mouth. Very rude, unprofessional, and his tests are very hard and unreasonable for an entry level course. BAD EXPERIENCE!

Ok.....the guy is tough....but as much as I hate to admit it, I learned so much! If you want to work, you will learn. He is hard, tough and demeaning at times, but underneath that rough exterior, he truly cares about what you learn, and is willing to help. Remember, we are here to learn as much as possible - take him, and it will happen!
