Professor : Gregor Campbell

Comment :
Campbell ALWAYS goes off on tangents, but he LOVES when people are talkative and initiate class discussion. I only went to about half of the seminars, but got a really good participation mark because I talked quite a bit. Prepare real world/mainstream examples that will be easy for your fellow classmates to relate to for oral presentations and you will do well. Professor Campbell really enjoys when the class gets involved, if you can do this, you'll get a good mark. I've taken several classes with Campbell, and like other comments have said, the course content and structuring will be different every semester/dependent on the Prof.

This is one of the core-credits for major/minors. So, every class will be entirely different content-wise, depending on which professor is running the seminar. One thing you can count on is a strong foundation in theory! Make sure you read the course outline on the SETS website to pick the course that is right for you.

Really liked this class! The professor sort of went off on tangents once in a while, but the assignments were great and Campbell really helped you achieve the best marks possible.
