Instructor: Professor Morel
Instruction Language: English.
Comments: This was an interesting class because it was taught by a different professor each time. Each session was based on a different country in the EU so it was neat to compare the different topics with places I had traveled to.

Course Department: FD08
Instructor: Kobrak
Instruction Language: English
Comments: It was a very challenging class and students who were unable to comprehend the material struggled. I found it easy if you studied the material, but many students did have difficulty. You have to actually pay attention during class and do your homework which many students didn't chose to do.
