Scott is an amazing professor! If you have questions for him make sure you ask! not everything that is due is mentioned in the class so make sure you write down due dates from the syllabus!

Scott was fantastic, he reminded me of Rick Steves from PBS. Incredibly interesting lectures, great speaker, and a very clear/fair grader. Make sure you take notes, do your reading, and don't forget about his blackboard assignments, and you'll be fine.

Scott is great. He's really approachable and and easy grader. He incorporates fun things like watching TV shows into his class, and his assignments are never overwhelming. His class was a great experience as a first year.

I had Scott for first-year seminar and he was the easiest teacher. we literally did not do anything and it was nice at first, but it got boring after a while. We just ended up watching videos the whole time and had class discussions. There was assigned reading but we didn't ever do anything with them so nobody read. He was really nice though.

Comment:
Scott is hands down my favorite professor at UMF. His tests are tough, but in the 10+ classes I've taken with him I've only had like, 3, in class exams. Most of the "exams" are take home papers which is awesome. He's an overall easy-going, laid back guy and a kind grader. Plus, he's super passionate about what he teaches!

You'll do a lot of discussion online, listen to some long lectures, and read quite a bit. With normal effort you can get a B pretty easily.

Comment:
In class Erb is a good professor but trying to really get his attention about a question outside of class was hard. It was great because when he was there he was attentive but outside of class he is a bit flighty like he is always forgetting or rushing for something so if you have a question don't email... ask in class.

Comment:
I had comparative politics with Erb. He's really, really, nice and teaches his material very thoroughly. His exams are pretty tough even if you know what you're doing. I got a B+ in the class, and worked hard for it. He is a really great teacher, though, and I learned so much. He's also the type of guy you just can't hate.

Though I hate politics, I liked his class. I slacked some and it was still easy. Erb is a nice guy and you can tell he really enjoys telling us about what is happening around the world. He doesn't even look at his notes when he lectures and does an amazing job. He is also willing to help you during office hours. I recommend him!

I had Scott Erb for an online class. The class materiel was excellent. He was Helpful but at the end of the semester he gave me an incomplete. I was fearing it was F after multiple attempts to contact him to figure out what i needed to do to get a grade i could not get in contact with him. It took a semester to get a grade that turned in to a B.

I had Scott for German Unification. He tried his best to make sure we understood the material and you could tell it was something he was really passionate about. It made for an awesome class!

I'm only putting this up to tell people two things, if you find your self in this class and have a basic knowledge of politics don't bother spending $100 and change on the books. I got a B+ without them and I barely showed up. Also attendance isn't mandatory but he gives a sick bonus if you miss less than 3 classes and a good one if less than 6

If you have had one class with him you have had them all. I learned this when I had three classes with him at the same time, it was painful I heard the same jokes over and over, as well as the same lessons. I was bored to tears by the time I heard it the third time.
