Comment:
If you need an amh credit take greenhaw. The class was very entertaining and I learned a great deal about diplomacy. One thing thing that I will say is that if you do not have enough time to read 300 pages every week then you may want to avoid this class. It requires a ridiculous amount of effort but in the end you will learn a lot.

Dr. Kallina was an absolutely excellent professor. The course always remained interesting and I really enjoyed each class. Dr. Kallina kept the class entertaining with his lectures. I used the textbook for the first quiz and somewhat for the second quiz, but not at all for the third. The lectures alone supply enough information for the quizzes.

If you are not required to take this class then don't take it! If you do not have a genuine Interest in American history, do not take this class. There is so much reading that it is hard to absorb all the informantion and the study guides for the exam are not very helpful.

Comment:
This teacher, very knowledgeable on the topic and gives you plenty of recourses to study from, is very difficult. His resources are good but the amount is impossible to absorb. He tries to give lists of test topics to study but it ends up being scattered throughout the book making it very hard to find anything of use. His papers are hard. Just run.

10/10 would learn cool stuff from again. In all seriousness though, Professor Kallina is very helpful, and seems to really enjoy teaching. I feel slightly biased as I was already highly interested in the course material, but he manages to make the class very exciting.

I loved Dr. Kallina. He gives an easy 15 point extra credit paper at the beginning of the semester, which helps out a lot. His exams are pretty straight-forward and easy. He also includes bonus questions on his exams. He's funny and loves to play videos that relate to the time period you're learning about.

Comment:
Dr. Kallina hammered me big time in the first course I had with him..... in 1977. And I deserved it. He taught me critical thinking at a time when that concept was out of fashion. I had 6-8 classes with him and really looked forward to each one. I ended up being an IT executive but my History degree and those classes with him meant everything to me

By far the WORST professor I've ever had. His assignments are dirt stupid. I looked down at my notes once and the guy thought I was sleeping and called me out for it. Avoid him at all costs.

Dr. Kallina is a very smart professor he just doesn't know how to communicate with students well through his lectures. The GTA's grade ALL of your work. So make sure that you make an effort to stop by and let them know who you are because they will help you out. I went to class most days and got a B

Dr. Kallina isvery passionate about history so the class is really fun to attend. He assigns pages to read every week. 3/5 of the papers are mandatory. The grading on them is very hard so make sure you understand what is expected an d go to the GTA's for help. The tests aren't too hard if you study and make sure you know how everything relates.

Pretty good professor altogether. Sounds almost like Gilbert Godfreid, but he makes the class interesting.

Unless this class is required for your major/minor, don't take it. Find something else. Rather than "US as a Great Power 1945-present," the class was essentially a Cold War History class. It's not about diplomacy or international aspects, it is made for history majors. There are 5 text books and about 200-300 pages of assigned reading each week.

Great professor. TA's do grade everything but they are very helpful if you go up to them. The class is basically the same as what you learn in high school. Super easy. Text required (and read it!). 4 exams and 4 essays. The topics are given way in advance. I suggest making notecards to study for exams.

The reviews are not very helpful. There is a ton of material that you are tested on. The TAs were extremely helpful if you go to office hours. Study everything. I wouldn't recommend taking this professor though if you can avoid it. I got a decent grade, but not the grade I wanted.

Couldn't be more unsatisfied with the professor. Test reviews done by TA's (who never know what to cover during reviews) and the TAs grade the paper. I failed the class because of the TA's. I honestly would advise taking a different professor.

Best professor Ive ever had. The class itself is somewhat hard because there are so few grades and tests are not extremely easy. But Prof. Kallina never gives a boring lecture and you can really tell he loves his job. EXTREMELY recommended. lots of reading (semi-optional considering i read only what was required to write the 3 papers and got an A)

I did not particularly like Professor Kallina, mostly because of the TA's. He takes attendance, but it does not count towards anything. Assigns a lot of reading, which is not ideal for heavy schedules. If you have the time to devote to a class, he is perfect, but anything else would be easier.

He does take attendance and if you sign up for the Mon Wed Fri, DOES have class on Fri. He does assign a LOT of literature, but the books are not that bad. Three papers chosen from five topics. His lectures are very interesting and has many extra credit opportunities. Reminds me of my grandfather, great professor! Recommended!
