Comment:
Dr. Bosák is by far my favourite history prof at MUN. The holocaust course was all movies, 2 papers and a critique. She is a very fair marker and will accommodate you as best as she can. She is hilarious and has so much experience in the subjects she teaches. 10/10 recommend taking this course with her. I loved her.

A really great professor who has great stories and is able to make anything she speaks about interesting and easy to understand as she is passionate about what she speaks about. Just make sure you go to class and read the syllabus.

Dr. Bosak is a very intelligent lady, she has lived through much of the history which she teaches. She is definitely hard to follow, and you will probably feel very lost at times. You MUST take good, quick notes as she talks because she says a lot very quickly But she is very easy to approach out of class, and she will do what she can to help you.

I see a lot of first years on here saying "she gives no notes," well I'm sorry, but when she speaks you need to take the notes. She doesn't spoon feed you like high school. She's an excellent prof. If she see's you're putting effort in, she will help you any way she can. Excellent prof. Makes me feel like I'm living the history she speaks about

Proffesor provides a solid outline for note readings. Attendance is a must. Easy to approach outside of class, must make an appointment.

Dont judge a book by its cover, although stern and direct she is wuite nice, no tests just a term paper with some assignments stemming off that, and the final exam, which she gave us the questions to study for. Her lectures are direct from the book with some explanation, no slides or online notes but everything is in the book or online.

Dr. Bosak's class was the worst experience of my university career. Poor quality and unorganized lectures. Not engaging whatsoever and just sits and mumbles personal digressions that have little relevance to the course. Refrain from taking a course with her.

Has a great knowledge of the history she teaches and tells very interesting stories, but her lectures are a mess. She never stays on topic and she rambles on a lot. Doesn't give any notes at all. She speaks and that's it. There was no midterm so went into the final with no idea what to expect. Decent grader and she cares a lot about attendance.

she is a really intelligent person who talks about a lot of interesting stuff but for a course it's super inconsistent and I felt really lost all the time. because there are no slides given the textbook really helped me actually have something to follow.

I took multiple course with her at the third level and fourth including Roma history, Holocaust and German History. Write down everything she says make a chance to meet her and show her you're interested and you'll be fine. She is 100% reasonable if you approach her respectfully and once the formalities are over, she's great!

Dr. Bosak is a awesome professor. She expects a lot from her students, but is more than willing to help. She comes off as a tough professor, but is super nice and helpful. I would defiantly recommend taking her class.

Dr. Bosak is an amazing professor! Her lectures might be a little all over the place but that is because she includes stories of her own experiences which helps you understand the situation more than class notes! I would definitely recommend taking a course with her, her stories are amazing and she's more than willing to help her students.

Lectures are disorganized and irrelevant to the course, but she does talk about interesting things and I think she appreciates students who show up to listen to her ramblings. Generous when grading the term paper, exams are based on the textbook and hints are given in class. I'm doing history as a minor, would like to take more courses with Bosak.

She is wonderful. She has lived the history she teaches. She brings her own great stories to a wonderful course.IF YOU DONT WANT TO WORK DROP. All these people complaining, obviously just got on her bad side. Be nice, and work. Ask questions. Get involved in her class. That's what she likes.

Comment:
Dr. Bosak is a very intelligent woman who has lived much of the history she teaches. However, her classes were disorganized and rambling. She expected her students to have all the background knowledge she did, making her class, at times, frustrating. Expectations were often unclear. However, a fair marker and very helpful if you go to her office.

A nice woman but has very unengaging classes. Her lectures are very all over the place and very unclear about essay standards. Doesn't use D2L, slideshow presentations, or give any notes in class. However, she's approachable and willing to give help and essay extensions if she knows you. But I wouldn't recommend taking a class with her.

I took a few courses from her. She is great. She doesn't spoon feed you but she is very helpful and understanding if you go to see her. She knows her stuff and expects her students to work hard.

She has a rep for being unapproachable but she really isn't. Dr. Bosák will go out of her way to help you as long as you make an effort in her class. She does not know how to do ppt presentations or anything on the overhead - she teaches like she was taught so you'd better take notes! Nothing wrong with that at all. If you don't want to work, drop.

Dr. Bosak was by far one of my favourite profs at MUN. She was an absolute delight and I enjoyed going to her class. Yes she does veer off topic with a story or two, but they are always interesting and in a way- relevant. Some say that she is a bit tough, but as long as you show up and participate you will learn a lot. A fair marker overall.

This prof is good if you know and like history. As i did not know anything it was very hard to follow along. She is defintiely a laugh but she talks fast and is all over the place. But id say she was a fair marker. I forgot much of the dates and specifics about questions on the midterm but still recieved 4/5s. :) not bad.
