Topics in Early Modern Studies
Fall 2018 - Javier is a great professor! Even though the subject matter of SPAN 135 does not seem to be the most exciting, he makes each lecture engaging and interesting to students. The format for the class is very clear, with a short answer reading response due before each class, one midterm, and a final paper. The material of this particular quarter's course got kind of monotonous after a while, but I still felt engaged and motivated to participate in class discussions. Javier gets to know his students and offers help whenever is needed. Many students take whatever class he teaches the next quarter as well. Definitely recommend him.
