Freitag was an amazing professor! He was clear on his requirements, and often reminded us of all of our upcoming assignments that were due. As long as you do the reading and take notes during his lectures, you will pass all of the quizzes and exams. Best Political Science professor at UWEC

Professor Freitag is a great guy. The subject of the class can be a little boring but he's funny and cares about what he's teaching. Super easy to pass if you show up and take notes, his lectures are easy to follow and he always sticks to the syllabus.

I really liked him! He makes the lectures engaging and easy to understand. Not totally certain of where he lands on the political spectrum, so that's nice. I don't sense a bias. Easy LE as long as you study a bit. Take this class with Freitag!

Good, informative lectures. Not bad to look at. Keeps the class engaged. You'll learn a lot. Expects a lot from you, but you'll never be quite sure how to meet those expectations. Still gave him a five because he's super knowledgeable and makes you want to learn about the government, too. Tied everything into the current-day, which was super cool.

I like him a lot, he makes his lectures clear and easy to understand. He is a funny guy and passionate about the material. As long as you take notes you don't really need to read. The material is really interesting to learn about. I would definitely recommend this professor.

Professor Freitag was a very enjoyable professor. He won't load you with busy-work and his grading criteria is clear. All his tests include essays, which can be tough. If you study, you'll be fine. Make sure you read the textbook though. He will test off things in the book that weren't discussed in class.

Reading helps understanding the material, but is not essential to pass the class. He knows the material well to explain it clearly. Syllabus clearly has dates planned. Quizzes and exams are based off of lectures, so attendance is mandatory.

This class was a very big struggle. Would not recommend this teacher. If you plan on going to class bring a pillow because his voice will put you to sleep. These test are so broad and he is not clear what they are on, thats hard when theres 2 books and lectures in the class. His notes barley exist and he talks the entire time. No electronics allow.

Class could be difficult, but he makes it simple. Lectures are well organized. He is a nice guy and makes corny jokes. There's minimul participation and work outside of class. 3 quizzes, 3 exams and the final is on the last third of the class. If you hit every point on the rubric, he will give full points.

Professor Freitag is a really nice man. He is an extremely easy grader when it comes to the little assignments. Every week you have a relevant reading due which are easy points, but it is kind of "busy work." He has 3 "quick quizzes" and 3 exams. As long as you study for the exams you should be okay. Overall, I would say a very easy class.

This professor was one of the best professors that I have had on campus thus far. His lectures can get pretty dry but all of the material that is on his tests he goes over in class. Would recommend him to anyone.

Awesome Professor! Was a very clear and organized lecturer. He was funny and made going to class enjoyable. You definitely have a much better chance of doing well of quizzes and tests if you show up to class and take notes. Didn't really have to do any reading to get a good grade.

TAKE THIS PROFESSOR! He's funny and a great professor! He's very clear on everything in lectures and will answer any of your questions thoroughly. Only have tests and quizzes in his class. Also, doesn't lead on to his own political views at all which was really nice!

He's a kind of professor I like. Very straight forward in his lectures. Loves talking about football on Mondays, and his tests/quizzes are generally easy.

Dr. Freitag is fantastic! I found his class super fun even though I'm not interested in politics at all! His tests aren't terribly hard, but they are very essay based.

I loved this class and it convinced me to become a Political Science major. Dr. Freitag is extremely nice and the class is pretty easy. You have a couple of multiple choice tests and a short paper. If you can take his section, do it.

Freitag is the man! Extremely knowledgeable on the subject matter. Exams and quizzes are all questions based off of class notes(just expand notes with greater detail) and you will be almost guaranteed an A. No homework, just optional reading of the textbook. Loved this class!
