Class: Korea 50

Fairly easy class. Weekly 1 page paper and attendance was worth 60%, pop quiz 20%, and another 20 for final. Pop quiz was T or F question and final was T and F and multiple choice questions. He gave us an hour to finish the final but pretty much everyone finished in 30mins, all u gotta do is study the key terms that he gave us by coming to lecture. Absolutely recommended for GPA booster

Dr. Duncan was a nice and approachable professor, and it was awesome getting to take a class with one of the leading scholars in Korean history. The lectures weren't super interesting, but I left the class with a solid foundation in Korean history and current events. Readings are super important, and they will pretty much determine your grade in this class!

I took Korea 50 with Duncan, as a disclaimer.

A very, very easy GE class if all you do is read the material religiously and go to discussion.

The way he designed the course was very good and it gave me a general idea of Korean history even though he himself said it didn't paint the whole picture of the subject.

Class consists of readings, discussions, and the exams are T/F, matching terms, and short essays of at least 3 key subjects. Very simple, just do the reading.

I rarely went to class after the midterm and got an A, that's how easy this class is.

Professor Duncan is not only a compassionate and highly knowledgable professor, but he is just such an awesome person all around. He knows so much about Korean history and speaks, writes, understands Korean better than most Koreans I know, including myself. If you're looking for a really cool professor and a great class on Korean history take it with this professor.
