Comment:
Prof. Bunkse is knowledgeable RE Cultural Geography, but over the course of the semester I became convinced that Cultural Geography is his very own made up field that exists only in GEOG203. Ideas are abstract, and lectures disjointed at best. If you're logic\math\sci oriented you'll probably struggle. If you're emotional or abstract you'll be fine

Comment:
I loved this class. The professor is clearly very knowledgable and passionate about the topic. This class is a bit more abstract than my other classes at UD. However, if you go in to it with a positive attitude you will learn a lot. All the tests are essay and very specific. Take good notes and ask questions as soon as you get confused.

Comment:
The only reason I took this class was because I needed a Multicultural Class, but it turned out to be a very interesting class. He does have a roundabout lecture style, but if you go to 80% of the lectures and take decent noted you will do fine. Go to discussions, TAs very helpful, and grading system is very favorable for students.

Comment:
Professor Bunkse is clearly a very well respected person in his field. He is interesting, very knowledgeable, and has unique ideas. His class is unlike any others you will take. It is not an easy class and its abstract and a bit haphazard. He gave us a new syllabus halfway through and moved our midterm up an entire week, giving us no time to study.

His lectures are all over the place. Pay as much attention as you can. Go to discussion. The TA's are great! They clarify a lot and are very helpful! Three blue book exams. A few short answer questions from lecture, a few from the readings, and one essay. Sometimes you can make up your own answer and still get full credit.

Comment:
Great professor, very well-versed in the subject, although lectures can be a little boring. Yes, some topics are "abstract" but that's to be expected in a cultural geography class. Exams are straightforward - everything on the exams are covered in lecture or the assigned readings. Put the time into going to class and it's pretty easy.

Comment:
An adorable old man with the best stories. Class was boring at times and his lectures are WAY abstract, but the discussions are helpful and if you read all of the required readings (assigned instead of a textbook) then you can do well on the exams. There is a project that is pretty easy (a little time consuming) and will help bring your grade up.

Prof. Bunkse was difficult to follow, and as already stated very abstract. I didn't go into the class with much interest, and left with even less. I would not recommend, but those who enjoy abstract thoughts/ideas may enjoy the class.

Comment:
ok,this guy was crazy.First off,the material learned in this class is VERY abstract. There is never really a clear cut definition for any term learned.Bunske obviously cares for his students, but he fails to teach the material effectively.However, rely on the TAs and you will be fine.Tests, which are all essays, are difficult.Overall,a rough class

Comment:
Bunkse is a very accomplished scholar and a genuinely nice guy, and his classes are different from any other geography classes out there. That being said, the topics covered are often very abstract, and his notes and lectures are usually more of a reading off of his bullet points with not a whole lot of elaboration. Be ready to go with the flow.

This was one of my favorite classes taken so far here at UD. Very good for history/philosophy/humanities majors interested in broadening their knowledge of the world and its landscapes. Is not a typical geog class but in very interesting in that it teaches you to think abstractly. Do the readings and pay close attention to everything he says.

His class is not easy, and you have to study a lot for his tests but the upside is that he is a very interesting prof. and he is so smart. I would definately recommend taking him, but be aware that he is a bit abstract.

I know it sucks when you take a class you have no interest in, so if this class is a requirement, PLEASE make sure to go into it open-minded. It's a really insightful class with interesting readings, & the professor has so much experience in the field, & although his lectures may be abstract, don't worry, read the readings, you'll be fine.

I read the comments here about Bunkse before taking his class and got scared. Decided to take the class anyway and he turned out to be a really great professor. A couple times he had the class in stitches from laughing. There were 3 blue book tests and an easy project. If you go to class and study, you will be fine. It's not rocket science.

Yes his lectures had the tendency to be boring and abstract and yes the exams were a little tricky but Bunske is not as bad as the reviews on this page make him out to be. He is a really nice guy who is very passionate about his field. Made me look at geog in a whole different way.

Bunkse is the man! Yes he is a little abstract but the key to success is to think outside the box, especially during discussion section. I had him as my discussion leader for his honors section (it was just myself and another student with him) and we all came up with pretty new and abstract ideas. His respect = a good mark in the class
