Dr. Kukucha is great when we aren't in a pandemic. He complains a lot about online schooling and not being able to do research. However in person the classes are great. Also, the textbooks he uses are great. He wrote the ones I have used in many classes and they have all been top notch.

Comment:
Meh. He seems bored and unengaged during most lectures. We are all tired of zoom, we all are in the same boat.... we also don't pay to listen to instructors complain about not being able to do research. Nice enough guy (mostly)!! VERY SMART!! Just seems like he can't really be "bothered" with first/second-year courses. Does seem willing to help!

Although this class wasn't super easy, Professor Kukucha is a good prof. He makes you work for your mark and is a tough grader, but can be easily accessed out of class if you need extra help. It is a pretty lecture heavy class, but if you take good notes and put in the effort, you'll do fine.

Kukucha is hilarious. The term paper was difficult, however, he is available for advice and is willing to look over it. I got an A+ on the paper, final, and midterm. The tests were easy and he just wants to know if students know the basic concepts (no trick questions). He does state that C's are the average for the class bc the paper is heavy.

Kukucha is amazing! His tests are easy because he believes that MC should just be, "do you know the content?" and there are no trick questions. His term papers are difficult and he marked us as if we were 4th year students. However, he spent 2 classes teaching us on how to write a university paper (citations, etc). It helped me ace other classes :)

Kukucha is the best political science professor Ive had. Ive taken Intro and IR with him. Hes a really fair grader and teaches in an unbias way. He does 2-3 lecture days on how to write a graduate level paper. So when I took my 2nd class, IR with him, I ended with an A+. The writing skills have carried to my other classes! Just show up tbh

You have to show up to class, as he does not post slides. WARNING: 15% is participation so show up and take good notes and engage (he notices).

Very smart, knows his stuff but if you ask for help about something he already explained in class, prepare for a rant about personal responsibility.

Chris is one of my favourite Poli Sci professors I have ever had. He is personable and makes lectures interesting. That does not mean his classes are necessarily easy but he is a fair marker and is there to help if you need it. Very understanding guy and will help if you ask. Very knowledgable in his field. Highly recommend taking a class with him.

Comment:
Taking this course would not have been the same without him; he was clear about the material and what had to been known for the exams. Beware however that his lectures can become confusing with all of the information that he is pumping out within the 50 minute span. Also, DON'T BUY THE TEXTBOOK! He only uses material from lectures on his exams.

Comment:
If you are not a Poli Sci major do not take a course with him unless it is a 1000 course!!!!!! His tests are purposely built in such a way that most students won't do well on them. His expectations and grading scheme for tests and papers are unbelievably unreasonable, and he pretty much tells students that he does not care whether they can keep up.

If you are thinking of taking Intro to Poli Sci or International Relations, then he's the one. He's really straight forward with what he expects from the students and gives really interesting lectures. He's such a great proffessor...

Great prof who obviously knows his stuff and wants you to grow as a student in his courses. "Quizzes" were actually midterms and the "final exam" was actually a term paper, but if you go to class and take notes, he gives you all the answers you need. POLI3750 was the most memorable course I've taken at any university.

Prof. Kukutcha is a fair prof. His classes are interesting, and he does encourage participation. Beware of his finals though, if you do not like writing, you will not do well. Do the readings for class, it make things go smoother, and he asks good probing questions. And try to get across to the other side of the coulee.

Hands down, the best prof I've ever had. He explains things clearly in his lectures, and he is very transparent in regards to what he expects. Tests are fairly straight forward, if you study and show up, you won't have an issue with his tests. If you need help he is also very willing to give it, and his advice is also very helpful.

Kukucha is an amazing prof. He is very straightforward and provides some really great lectures. He has a great sense of humour and takes the time to break down every bit of content. The first 15 minutes of every Friday are dedicated to a current events discussion which is great. DO NOT BUY THE TEXTBOOK!! Tests are based 100% on lectures.

Chris is a great prof and knows his material inside out. You have to work for your mark in this class because you get what you put in. He genuinely wants you to succeed in his class and is willing to help you if you need the help. Chris is also very clear in what he is looking for when it comes to assignments and exams.

He makes class a lot more appealing. He does lecture lots but he makes it interesting and fun with the odd joke added in.

He does go over things really fast, and his writing is messy but everything he says makes sense, and if you understand what he taught the tests are super easy. DO NOT MISS ONE DAY. He is also willing to give any extra help and is super nice
