Fall 2020 - Overall, this class wasn't very difficult. Our weekly homework was a 400-500 word paragraph responding to a question the professor asks about the lecture material at the beginning of the week. We have until Saturday of that week to respond, which was a very reasonable deadline. Our midterm and final were actually oral exams with your TA and they were open note, so if you prepare well, it's pretty easy to do well on those. The lectures themselves are engaging and professor Moore does a good job of condensing some pretty dense reading into something much more easily understandable. Overall, it's a very interesting class and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a fairly easy GE.
Took International and Area Studies 1 with him. Excellent lecturer and very interesting topics! He talks a lot about current events and sprinkles stories about his studies, his love for cats, and fashion critiques on propaganda posters! Course is compromised of a midterm, weekly posts, and a final. Readings are crucial, however both he and the TAs (I had Clare Beer - she is an amazing TA!) go over them in full detail.
Spring 2023 - 100/10 I loved this class and this professor. content is interesting and lectures are well organized. I did study a lot for the tests in order to get good grades, but nothing crazy. getting a good grade in this class requires both memorization of the content and understanding of the concepts. also the prof is very approachable and I enjoyed his office hours (and he has an adorable dog named ginger in his office most of the time)
Fall 2016 - Take IA 1 with him. Lecture does not count attendance but is helpful if you can go. Grade break down : 1midterm+ weekly response 350-500+ final+ discussion TA Beer is extremely nice and helpful! Discussion count attendence and require activeness, But the discussion is very engaging! Grade is not harsh. As long as you try your best, you can definitely do it!
