Comment:
Professor Curley is probably the most outstanding subject matter expert of any class I have ever taken. He is a master on the subject of British poetry and a wonderful human being. His lectures are extraordinarily enlightening. I would gladly take another class from Professor Curley. He is a treasure!

Wicked easy grader - only had about 4 papers which made the class easier to be honest. He may seem like a lot on the 1st day but believe me the class is not hard at all. He is 100% the funniest professor I've ever had and he was super laid back. His class was a nice break from my tough schedule this semester.

Tom is a very sweet Professor. He makes sure that all of his students understands the material in the best ways possible. Like every professor, however, he has some downsides. His breath kind of smells and he gets so into his lectures that he may touch your shoulder or face for demonstration purposes without asking. Hes awesome though, take him!!

Professor Curley is a super sweet guy. His lectures were dry and long and it was hard to pay attention. However, he only had 3 papers, a midterm, and a final. You can get by with minimal reading.

Comment:
Curley is a kind professor who cares about his students. Lectures throughout the semester are dry - I did not pay attention at all and still did fine. Has no attendance policy - only need to go before the midterm and final. Did not buy or read any of the textbooks and he allows you to basically write about whatever you want for the short essays.

Comment:
Curley is a pretty easygoing guy, you just gotta show that you care what he's talking about and put a little effort in the class and he'll love you. three essays throughout the semester that he give you the prompts and due dates for each on in the syllabus. Other than that the only other things that make up your grade are the midterm/final.

Comment:
All you need to do is show up for the class before the tests and the tests. He goes over everything you learned all semester so there's no point of going to class all semester. He's really old school and doesn't use technology and his handwriting is hard to read, but all around good, caring guy.

Comment:
He's a good professor and a very intellectual individual, and he knows what he's talking about, however, he tends to touch students a lot, especially female students, which can be uncomfortable especially when you're trying to listen to him and take notes at the same time. Aside from that, he's a pretty fair grader, is funny, and does his job well!

One of the most respectable professors I've had at BSU. Has an old-school style of teaching where he spends most of the class lecturing - what you do while he speaks is up to you. You have to be willing to pay attention and take lots of notes to do well. Clear assignment and grading criteria. He understands what students expect from professors.

He is very caring for his students but the lectures are very dry, the grading criteria and requirement for the 3 papers are not clear and the information that is required for the midterm and final exams is not clear and culmulative.

Dr. Curley is the sweetest professor I've ever had. He's so understandable and wicked lenient. The only issue I had were the tests. As an English major, I don't believe in tests; we had two tests and one paper. However, that is his teaching style and I can't critique him for that. He truly wants you to succeed and truly cares about his students.

For English 322: Age of Johnson Professor Thomas Curley is honestly amazing. We had a midterm, term paper, and a final exam. If youd study what he goes over then you will do fine. He lectures a lot but he is extremely intelligent �� and if you have a question he will answer. He is a teCher who wants to see you do well in class and out of class!!

Comment:
Curley is a unique professor, I loved his teaching style. He's so funny and can unintentionally be offensive at times but he's old and very sweet so you can't take it to heart. Cares a lot about his students. We had 2 exams and 4 papers which were mildly difficult but if you just show up to class and listen to him you'll be fine. Ended class early!

Curley was great. He cares for you. If i could take more classes he was teaching there is no doubt i would be signing up for it. He gives you some of the readings to save money for you. I only bought a few of the books and just looked up the rest on spark notes. He lets you right about anything on the books you were reading at the time.

This guy talks a lot, but hell he is a nice guy. He'll pass handouts to the class so you dont need to buy any text books, which is solid. There are three papers in his Law and Literature class, but he gives topics for you to choose and gives you plenty of resources to help you. 9/10 would take again.

He is awesome! I would take him again no questions asked. He allows the students to think for themselves. His lectures are really good too. He adds his own personal stories into things and it's really cute. I would recommend him to anyone!

Professor Curley is the sweetest man. He cares about how you're doing and offers help. He also is the only professor I've had that takes into consideration the fact that you pay his salary, and you have 5 other classes. He wraps his course 2 weeks early. Do the readings and you will be fine. Taking him again in whatever he is offering

wonderful man. cares about his profession and students. lectures, but doesn't take attendance- he is well aware of who does/doesn't show up. Easy grader but also provides great insight. 1 research paper, a midterm and a final. ALWAYS lets classes out 2 weeks early so they can focus on their other courses' needs at the end of semester. TAKE HIM!

Comment:
One of the most caring and intelligent professors at BSU. Understanding of each student's situation and is one of the only professors who always reminds his students that WE pay his salary, including that he cannot force students to do anything such as participate. Pay attention and do the work and you will get the grade you earned. Great class!
