Intro to macro with prof Artunc is a challenging class with problem sets due every week. These problem sets often take multiple hours to complete and going into his office hours is nearly essential to do well in this class. Even though the material is taught fast, Artunc really wants everyone to exceed and is accommodating. He has an awkward but funny sense of humor and gives a great deal of knowledge that will be useful to Econ majors.

Professor Artunç is certainly more difficult than other macro teachers, but he is not unfair. Office hours are absolutely essential to do well in his class as the problem sets are often confusing and extremely long. I would take another course with this professor but I would not recommend him to anyone that is not very interested in majoring or minoring in economics, or who is just not interested in economics at all.

I feel 50/50 on Professor Artunç. First I want to emphasize that he’s a professor that wants to see you succeed and will help you get to your goals. But, that being said the way he does that isn’t necessarily good. His classes are very fast paced and requires a lot of reading. He expects you to know everything and doesn’t really stop if no one asks a question. I understand that this is not an easy class, but I don’t think it’s supposed to be this hard. The problem sets are absurdly long, hard, and have nothing to do with what his lectures are about. If you don’t go to office hours, you will most likely not pass the course. But even his office hours are unhelpful. CTLR is the only reason I will (most likely) end the course with a B+. I think that if you want to learn a lot this is definitely a class you want to take, but be prepared to teach yourself and spend 8+ frustrating hours a week studying and doing the homework’s and readings.
