Comment:
Osborne is really easy. He gives a sheet with questions to all the test beforehand and answers all the questions so it's memorization. One take home exam that was easy. Class is boring and you watch a lot of useless videos. A very nice guy that's passionate about the topic.

Comment:
Dr. Osborne is semi-retired and is very passionate about what he teaches. Class is pretty boring and he only took attendance once in the 5-week summer session. All tests were take home. Pretty easy grader and a somewhat-easy class if you are interested in British Lit, which I am clearly not.

Dr. Osborne is by far the funniest teacher, and very easy. All tests are take homes. Class is based on watching movies and then SHORT discussions. Other work includes moview reviews and glosses, very easy upper level class!

Comment:
Osbourne is great. He is very objective in teaching this class and Ive never met anyone who knows so much about the Bible. The class is a little dull but he is so old and funny that you cant help but like it. Tests are take home- both objective and subjective. A few papers to write, but he grades pretty easily and allows you to ask plenty of q's.

Comment:
After next semester, I'll have taken every class of his. He's amazing and I think everyone should try to get into his classes for his last semester. They're trying to get him to do part-time, and if they do, take him. Just don't take his lax attendance policy as a sign to never come, you'll be lost for the exams if you miss class all the time.

I will be sorry to see him retire! He really knows the material, and you can see how much he loves teaching. His tests are mostly take home, but quite in depth, and thought provoking.

Wonderful teacher...I could listen to him read poetry all day! Yes, his tests are take home, but that's because he expects you to use quotes and refer back to the poems; which some prof. don't allow. They want you to memorize the poems, Prof. Osborne wants you to learn the deeper meaning. He's enthusiastic and makes the class fun!

Wonderful professor and a wonderful person. Everyone should take him at least once, even if you're not an English major. He's extremely knowledgeable and makes class interesting. His tests are mostly take home ones, and he really gets you to think without forcing you to conform. I'll have had him about 6 times by the time I graduate!

I rarely find professors funny but he is HILARIOUS. Especially because he doesn't try to be. I hope he doesn't retire soon because more students should take his class! Great professor, class is easy. He will describe the readings in class so you don't even have to read them beforehand, I swear.

Oh my god I love him! I hated Brit Lit but he made class intriguing enough for me that I can now tolerate it. I barely read anything that was assigned but took notes on everything he said in class, included all that in the essays/exams and did just fine. I think everyone should take him especially if you're an English major.

Dr. Osborne is a wonderful professor; probably the best professor I've ever had. I dreaded taking British Lit., but he made it interesting, and even fun. If you have a chance to take any of his classes, do it.

He is a very good professor. The one thing that will help your grade is to do supplemental reading. Get a few books to prepare you for his classes. Other than that, he is an excellent professor. I highly recommend.
