Winter 2020 - I took Visual historic methods during the zoom year. I'm not sure why no one has reviewed this professor. He's one of the most approachable and all around just nice professors. Having said that, he doesn't hold back on feedback. He will tell you exactly where you came up short. I really appreciated this as it helped me grow and do better. He let the class decide the format- whether we wanted synchronous or asynchronous online lectures and the discussion aspect of the class was really lively. Whether people were more comfortable in chat or talking, he was accommodating to both. Most of the material was very engaging and he polled us at the end of class to find out which materials we engaged more with which we didn't. He was really attentive to student feedback. He also helped us every step of the way on our final projects- even letting people resubmit portions (like the proposal) to improve their grade. This class was just such a good balance of understanding and hard work. It wasn't easy, but it was enjoyable, and I felt like I learned a valuable skill. It's definitely worthwhile for any humanities major interested in visual media/methods.
Winter 2023 - prof milos is a really nice lecturer, very incredibly understanding guy. i did not think I was so engaged in the lectures but maybe thats just me. His workload is definitely doable and I think if you put in the effort there is no reason not to get an A. i wasnt very interested in the topic i think and so I honestly did not really enjoy the lectures thatmuch. however, hes a really understanding professor and is helpful in office hours and really does want his students to succeed.
Winter 2022 - Put in the work and you will succeed. I highly suggest that anyone who wants to take this class to brush up on their European history beforehand and to take a political science, sociology, and psychology class to supplement this as well. The final project is a 10 page research paper based on a European city within a piece of fiction. I was blindsided by many of the topics discussed but managed to pull through because of office hours. He wants you to succeed but put in the work. He can spot bs a mile away. Also make sure to talk because he grades participation and please participate or else awkward silence follows. Take notes and ask questions as some of the topics discussed can be quite abstract. You also have to lead the discussion during a lecture and give a presentation, practice beforehand as those points can add up and either save you or bring your grade down. If you get stuck during this portion of the class he comes in clutch and asks the class a question on your behalf to get things back into motion.
