Professor Friedkin is a really nice and funny person. His classes can sometimes get uninteresting, but he makes his work pretty clear. He's a good professor and has good topics for his classes.

his attendance policy stated in the syllabus is, if you miss more than 4 classes per semester you fail, but I definitely missed close to 10 and I still passed with an A. I definitely enjoyed the course and course texts, and he obviously knows what he is talking about. There was no real final …more either, just a final paper that he helped you with. less

He is actually a really cool man. As long as you do the work he asks you to do (which is totally manageable), you will get an A. If you go a little bit beyond what he asks, you will get an A+. He's smart and I actually learned a lot from class discussions. I DEF recommend taking a class with him. …more No tests - just papers. Attendance matters less

He is the worst professor i have ever met in my entire life. he does not teach he just tells you that you don't make any sense. i don't understand how these people liked him, everyone in my class basically failed their paper.

Really helpful with papers. Likes when people are interactive and have discussions. Can seem a little scatterbrained, but he's still a pretty cool guy. Would definitely take his class again.

he was usually nice, but just was not a great teacher. I, along with others, would go to him for help and he would just confuse us more. Tell us to go one way with our papers, and then to go another way. The topic based class made me feel like i i was in an economics class. He did not do anything …more to help our writing improve. less

Friedkin was the toughest grader ever. Goes really hard on grading and will give you a 70 on your essay if you don't have quite after quote after quote with none of your opinion in it. Definitely wouldn't take him again, you learn a lot but his classes are boring.

Classes are so long and tedious. He reads for the whole class. And he is confusing about what he wants in the essays. Even if you see him in meetings, he will tell you to SPECIFICALLY do something, then he will say that was not what he is looking for when he grades. Not a hard class, but i wouldn't …more recommend taking it if you want an easy A. less

The guy can be really confusing. Sometimes, he's unclearer than our essays! He used the word "pontificate" to mean "when you use information from the books, cite them." Get ready to have sentences the least bit off your thesis crossed out and sentences slightly wordier than necessary reworded. …more Presents debatable topics from only 1 POV. less
